Titus 1 (KJV)

1 Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;

7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled (Willfulness, especially in satisfying one's own desires or adhering to one's own opinions.), not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker (troublemaker), not given to filthy lucre (money, esp. when regarded as sordid or distasteful or gained in a dishonorable way.);
8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober (clear-headed), just, holy, temperate (pleasant);
9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort  (advise) and to convince the gainsayers (disputers).

10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision (those who were baptized):
11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert (overthrow) whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's (money, esp. when regarded as sordid or distasteful or gained in a dishonorable way.) sake.

12 One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, the Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.
13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;
14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate (an unprincipled person (often used humorously or affectionately).
