    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:7

    Porque es necesario que el obispo sea irreprensible, como dispensador de Dios; no soberbio, no iracundo, no dado al vino, no heridor, no codicioso de ganancias deshonestas;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Titus 1:7

    Verse 7. Not self-willed] mh auqadh? Not one who is determined to have his own way in every thing; setting up his own
    judgment to that of all others; expecting all to pay homage to his understanding. Such a governor in the Church of God can do little good, and may do much mischief.

    Not soon angry] mh opgilon? Not a choleric man; one who is irritable; who is apt to be inflamed on every opposition; one who has not proper command over his own temper.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. For a bishop must be blameless , etc.] This shows that a bishop and an elder is the same; and the Syriac version here renders it, an elder; the character or qualification necessary to him is the same as before, and in like manner to be understood; unless it should more particularly refer to his faithfulness in the discharge of his office: since it follows, as the steward of God ; one appointed by God over his household and family, the church, to give to everyone their portion of meat in due season; one that dispenses the manifold grace, or various doctrines of the grace of God, and mysteries of Christ; and of such an one it is required, that he be faithful, both to his Lord and master, to the trust committed to him, and to the persons under his care. Not selfwilled ; not doing things in the worship and house of God, in the ministry of the word, and administration of ordinances, according to his own will, but according to the will of God, revealed in his word; otherwise what he does will come under the name of will worship: or obstinate, stubborn, and inflexible, conceited of his own sense and judgment, and resolute to have his own will and way in all things relating to the affairs of God's house. The word signifies one that is pleased with himself, has an over weening opinion of himself, is proud and haughty, and despises others: not soon angry : but slow to wrath, which shows a man to be a man of understanding, and fit to teach others, which an angry man is not. It is a saying of R. Hillell , that neither one that is ashamed (to ask questions) learns well, nor one that is angry teaches well And the Jews say , that the law is not rightly explained but by one that is not angry.

    Hence, that direction , for ever let a man be meek as Hillell, and not angry as Shammai; who were two of their principal doctors, the heads of their schools, in the times of Christ: a man that rules his own spirit, and has the command of his temper and passions, is fit to govern in the church of God. Not given to wine, no striker, nor given to filthy lucre ; (See Gill on Timothy 3:3).


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 5-9 - The character and qualification of pastors, here called elders an bishops, agree with what the apostle wrote to Timothy. Being suc bishops and overseers of the flock, to be examples to them, and God' stewards to take care of the affairs of his household, there is grea reason that they should be blameless. What they are not to be, is plainly shown, as well as what they are to be, as servants of Christ and able ministers of the letter and practice of the gospel. And her are described the spirit and practice becoming such as should be examples of good works.

    7. A
    bishop (ton episkopon). See on 1 Tim. iii. 1; v. 1. Rend. the bishop. It will be observed that the qualifications of the elders are fixed by those of the bishop. Appoint elders who shall be unaccused, etc. for the bishop must be unaccused, etc. The overseers must have the qualifications of approved presbyters.
