    VERSE (8) -
    1Ti 3:2

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:8

    sino hospedador, amador de los buenos, templado, justo, santo, continente;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Titus 1:8

    Verse 8. A
    lover of hospitality] filoxenon? A lover of strangers. See the note on 1 Tim. iii. 2. Instead of filoxenon, one MS. has filoptwxon, a lover of the poor. That minister who neglects the poor, but is frequent in his visits to the rich, knows little of his Master's work, and has little of his Master's spirit.

    A lover of good men] filagaqon? A lover of goodness or of good things in general.

    Sober] Prudent in all his conduct. Just in all his dealings. Holy in his heart.

    Temperate - self-denying and abstemious, in his food and raiment; not too nice on points of honour, nor magisterially rigid in the exercise of his ecclesiastical functions. Qualifications rarely found in spiritual governors.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. But a lover of hospitality , etc.] (See Gill on 1 Timothy 3:2) a lover of good men , or of good; the Syriac version renders it, of good things; as prayer, preaching, reading, meditation, spiritual conversation, and every religious exercise: or of good men; for such an elder or bishop has chiefly to do and converse with; and if he is not a lover of them, their company will be disagreeable to him, and he will be of no advantage to them; and if he does not love the souls of men, he will not naturally care for their state, or be concerned for their good. Sober : in body, using moderation in diet and dress; and in mind, being prudent, modest, and humble, and thinking soberly of himself, and others, as he ought. Just ; righteous in his dealings with men, giving to everyone their due; upright and sincere in his conversation with the saints; and faithful in his counsel, admonitions, and reproofs. Holy ; devout towards God, constant in all religious exercises in the closet, family, and church; and living soberly, righteously, and godly in the world. Temperate ; in eating and drinking; continent from the lusts of the flesh; and even abstaining from those things which might be lawfully used, though inexpedient, for the sake of the weak, the peace of the church, and the glory of God.

    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.
