Titus 1:7

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not self-willed, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;
New King James Version

For a bishop must be blameless, as a steward of God, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money,
New American Standard Bible

For the overseer must be above reproach as God's steward, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money,
New International Version

Since an overseer (traditionally, bishop) is entrusted with God’s work, he must be blameless - not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain.
The Amplified Bible

For the bishop (an overseer) as God’s steward must be blameless, not self-willed or arrogant or presumptuous; he must not be quick-tempered or given to drink or pugnacious (brawling, violent); he must not be grasping and greedy for filthy lucre (financial gain);
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

for it is a necessity in the nature of the case that the overseer be such that no charge can be brought against him as God’s superintendent; not self-willed, not irascible, not addicted to wine, not pugnacious, not fond of dishonest gain
Phillips’ Modern English

To exercise spiritual oversight a man must be of unimpeachable virtue, for he is God’s agent in the affairs of His household. He must not be aggressive or hot-tempered or over-fond of wine; nor must he be violent or greedy for financial gain.
Williams’ Language of the People

For as God’s trustee an episkopas must be above reproach, not stubborn nor quick-tempered or addicted to strong drink or pugnacious or addicted to dishonest gain,
