Papyrus 32 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), designated by \mathfrak{P}32, is an early copy of the New Testament in Greek. It is a papyrus manuscript of the Epistle to Titus, it contains only Titus 1:11-15; 2:3-8. On the basis of paleography, the manuscript has been assigned a date around A.D. 200.[1]

Description[edit]

Written in round and rather large letters. A slight tendency towards division of words can be observed. The nomina sacra abbreviated.[2]

The Greek text of this codex is a representative of the Alexandrian text-type. Aland described it as "at least normal text", he placed it in Category I.[1] This manuscript shows agreement with Codex Sinaiticus and with F G.

It is currently housed with the Rylands Papyri at the John Rylands University Library (Gr. P. 5) in Manchester.[1][3]

Greek text[edit]

The papyrus is written on both sides. The characters that are in bold style are the ones that can be seen in \mathfrak{P}32. It shows agreement with Codex Sinaiticus, Codex Augiensis, and Codex Boernerianus.

to muzzle, because whole families they are upsetting,
teaching what they must not, for ugly
gain's sake. Said one of themselves,
even one of their own prophets, "Cretans are always
liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons."
The testimony of this is true. Because of
this reason, reprove them severely,
so that they may be sound in the faith; Not
giving heed to Jewish myths,
and commandments of men, who turn
away from the truth. All things are
pure unto the pure: but unto them who are
both defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure.

Epistle to Titus 2:3-8 (verso)

false accusers, not to wine much enslaved,
teachers of the good. So that
they may teach to be sensible the young women, loving their husbands,
loving their children. Sober minded,
pure, busy in the home, kind,
subject to their own husbands.
So that not the word of God may be blasphemed.
The young men,
likewise, urge to be sober minded.
Concerning all things, yourself shew
an example of good works:
in the teaching show integrity, gravity,
soundness of speech beyond reproach;
so that he who opposes you may be ashamed,
