Kiswahili Contemporary Version (Neno: Bibilia Takatifu)

Tito 3:1-15

Kutenda Mema

13:1 Rum 13:1; 2Tim 2:21Wakumbushe watu kuwanyenyekea watawala na kuwatii wenye mamlaka, wawe tayari kutenda kila lililo jema. 23:2 Efe 4:31; 2Tim 2:24Wasimnenee mtu yeyote mabaya, wasiwe wagomvi, bali wawe wapole, wakionyesha unyenyekevu kwa watu wote.

33:3 Efe 2:2, 5, 8; 1Kor 6:11Maana sisi wenyewe wakati fulani tulikuwa wajinga, wasiotii, tukiwa watumwa wa tamaa mbaya na anasa za kila aina. Tuliishi katika uovu na wivu, tukichukiwa na kuchukiana sisi kwa sisi. 43:4 Efe 2:7; Tit 2:11; Mit 8:31; 1Tim 2:3Lakini wema na upendo wa Mungu Mwokozi wetu ulipofunuliwa, 53:5 Efe 2:9; Rum 12:2; 3:20; 9:11; Gal 2:16; 2Tim 1:9; Yn 3:3, 5alituokoa, si kwa sababu ya matendo ya haki tuliyotenda, bali kwa sababu ya rehema zake. Alituokoa kwa kutuosha kwa kuzaliwa mara ya pili na kwa kufanywa wapya kwa njia ya Roho Mtakatifu, 63:6 Rum 5:5; Eze 36:25; Yoe 2:28; Yn 1:16; Mdo 2:33; 10:45ambaye Mungu alitumiminia kwa wingi kwa njia ya Yesu Kristo Mwokozi wetu, 73:7 Rum 3:24; 8:24; Tit 1:2ili kwamba, tukiisha kuhesabiwa haki kwa neema yake, tupate kuwa warithi tukiwa na tumaini la uzima wa milele. 83:8 1Tim 1:15; Tit 2:14Hili ni neno la kuaminiwa. Nami nataka uyasisitize mambo haya, ili wale ambao wamemwamini Mungu wapate kuwa waangalifu kujitoa kwa ajili ya kutenda mema wakati wote. Mambo haya ni mazuri tena ya manufaa kwa kila mtu.

93:9 1Tim 1:14; 2Tim 2:14Lakini jiepushe na maswali ya kipuzi, mambo ya koo, mabishano na ugomvi kuhusu sheria, kwa sababu hayana faida, tena ni ubatili. 103:10 Rum 16:17; 2Kor 13:2; Mt 18:17; 2The 3:6, 14; 2Tim 3:5; Yn 10Mtu anayesababisha mafarakano, mwonye mara ya kwanza, kisha mwonye mara ya pili. Baada ya hapo, usihusike naye tena. 113:11 Mdo 13:46; 1Tim 6:4, 5Kwa kuwa unajua kwamba mtu kama huyo amepotoka na tena ni mwenye dhambi. Yeye amejihukumu mwenyewe.

Maneno Ya Mwisho Na Kumtamkia Baraka

123:12 Mdo 20:4; 2Tim 4:9, 21Mara nitakapomtuma Artema au Tikiko kwako, jitahidi kuja unione huko Nikopoli, kwa sababu nimeamua kukaa huko wakati wa majira ya baridi. 133:13 Mdo 18:24Fanya kila uwezalo uwasafirishe Zena yule mwanasheria na Apolo na uhakikishe kwamba wana kila kitu wanachohitaji katika safari yao. 14Watu wetu hawana budi kujifunza kutenda mema, ili waweze kuyakimu mahitaji ya kila siku, wasije wakaishi maisha yasiyokuwa na matunda.

153:15 1Tim 1:2; Kol 4:18Wote walio pamoja nami wanakusalimu. Wasalimu wale wanaotupenda katika imani.

Neema iwe nanyi nyote. Amen.

King James Version

Titus 3:1-15

1Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, 2To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men. 3For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. 4But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 6Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 7That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. 8This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men. 9But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. 10A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; 11Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.

12When I shall send Artemas unto thee, or Tychicus, be diligent to come unto me to Nicopolis: for I have determined there to winter. 13Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently, that nothing be wanting unto them. 14And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful. 15All that are with me salute thee. Greet them that love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. Amen.
