11 They must be silenced, because they are disrupting whole householdsc by teaching things they ought not to teach—and that for the sake of dishonest gain. 12 One of Crete’s own prophetsd has said it: “Cretanse are always liars, evil brutes, lazy gluttons.”c 13 This saying is true. Therefore rebukef them sharply, so that they will be sound in the faithg 14 and will pay no attention to Jewish mythsh or to the merely human commandsi of those who reject the truth.j
From the Cretan philosopher Epimenides
