The Letter of Saint Paul to Titus     3: 1-7

3:1 Admonish them to be subordinate to the rulers and authorities, to obey their dictates, to be prepared for every good work,
3:2 to speak evil of no one, not to be litigious, but to be reserved, displaying all meekness toward all men.
3:3 For, in times past, we ourselves were also unwise, unbelieving, erring, servants of various desires and pleasures, acting with malice and envy, being hateful and hating one another.
3:4 But then the kindness and humanity of God our Savior appeared.
3:5 And he saved us, not by works of justice that we had done, but, in accord with his mercy, by the washing of regeneration and by the renovation of the Holy Spirit,
3:6 whom he has poured out upon us in abundance, through Jesus Christ our Savior,
3:7 so that, having been justified by his grace, we may become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
