    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:1

    ¶ Pero t, habla lo que conviene a la sana doctrina:

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Titus 2:1

    Verse 1. But speak thou the things] This is a conclusion drawn from the preceding chapter: the Judaizing
    teachers not only taught a false doctrine, but they led an unholy life; Titus was to act directly opposite; he must teach a sacred doctrine, and the things which become it; he must proclaim the truth, and illustrate that truth. The people must not only be well instructed, but they must be holy in their lives. Principle and practice must go hand in hand.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. But speak thou the things which become
    sound doctrine .] Concerning sound doctrine, and the form of it, (see Gill on 2 Timothy 1:13). The things which become it are a good life and conversation, the various duties incumbent on professors of religion, according to their different station, age, and sex, which are observed in some following verses; these become the Gospel of Christ, and are ornamental to the doctrine of God our Saviour; and these are to be spoken of by the ministers of Christ, in their proper places, and at proper times; who ought not to be dumb, and keep silence at any time, but especially when there are many unruly and vain talkers: sound doctrine ought to be spoken out openly and publicly, fully and faithfully, with great plainness and evidence, that it may be understood and known by all; and with much certainty, without hesitation, as being, without controversy, undoubted truth; and with all boldness, not fearing men, or seeking to please them; and it should be constantly and continually spoken, in season, and out of season; and care should be taken that it be spoken consistently, and in an uniform manner, that there be no clashing and contradiction; and the duties of religion, which become sound doctrine, should be set in their true light, and proper place, as fruits of the grace of God, and to glorify him; these should be spoken out plainly, frequently insisted upon, and warmly and zealously urged, as being decent things, for the honour of God, the recommending of religion, the good of mankind, and the service of one another: as particularly, Ver. 2. That the aged men be sober , etc.] Or vigilant, and watchful over themselves, their conduct and conversation, lest being evil, it should be drawn into an example by younger persons: this is to be understood not of men in office, of presbyters or elders; for their characters are described in the preceding chapter; but of men in years, of ancient men, that are professors of religion, and members of churches: who should also be grave ; in their behaviour, speech, and dress; levity of conversation, frothy language, and airy dress, are very unbecoming aged persons: and who ought to be temperate ; in eating and drinking, especially the latter, to which old age is most addicted, and care should be taken that they be not over charged with it, and that day overtake them unawares, since they are upon the brink and borders of eternity: the word is rendered discreet in ( Titus 2:5) and sober in ( 1 Timothy 3:2) and both are characters suitable to men in years. Sound in faith, in charity, in patience ; though they may be unhealthful in their bodies, and become decrepit through age, they should be sound in their minds; in the doctrine of faith, lest they should lead others into error; and their faith in Christ should appear to be right and genuine; and their love to God, to Christ, and to his people, should be real and sincere, and be taken off from the things of the world, of time and sense; an affection for which is an evil that frequently cleaves to old age: and patience should have its perfect work; not only to bear the infirmities of body, brought on by age; but whatsoever sufferings they may be called unto for the sake of Christ and his Gospel, in their last day; and to run out the race that is set before them.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-8 - Old
    disciples of Christ must behave in every thing agreeably to the Christian doctrine. That the aged men be sober; not thinking that the decays of nature will justify any excess; but seeking comfort from nearer communion with God, not from any undue indulgence. Faith work by, and must be seen in love, of God for himself, and of men for God' sake. Aged persons are apt to be peevish and fretful; therefore need to be on their guard. Though there is not express Scripture for ever word, or look, yet there are general rules, according to which all mus be ordered. Young women must be sober and discreet; for many expos themselves to fatal temptations by what at first might be only want of discretion. The reason is added, that the word of God may not be blasphemed. Failures in duties greatly reproach Christianity. Young me are apt to be eager and thoughtless, therefore must be earnestly calle upon to be sober-minded: there are more young people ruined by prid than by any other sin. Every godly man's endeavour must be to stop the mouths of adversaries. Let thine own conscience answer for thin uprightness. What a glory is it for a Christian, when that mouth whic would fain open itself against him, cannot find any evil in him to speak of!


    Greek Textus Receptus

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    1. Speak thou (lalei). See on
    Matt. xxviii. 18; John viii. 26. Become (prepei). Originally, to stand out; be conspicuous. Thus Homer, Od. viii. 172: meta de prepei ajgromenoisin he is conspicuous among those who are assembled. Eurip. Hel. 215; Zeuv prepwn dij aijqerov Zeus shining clearly through the aether. Hence, to become conspicuously fit; to become; beseem. In N.T. in the impersonal forms prepon ejstin it is becoming (Matt. iii. 15); prepei it becometh (Eph. v. 3); eprepen it became (Heb. ii. 10). With a subject nominative, 1 Timothy ii. 10; Heb. vii. 26.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    2:1 {But speak thou} (su de lalei). In contrast to these Pharisaic Gnostics in
    Crete. {Befit} (prepei). Old verb to be becoming, seemly. See #1Ti 2:10; Eph 5:3. With dative case didaskaliai. {Sound} (hugiainousei). Healthful as in #1:13; 2:2; 1Ti 1:10, common word in the Pastorals.
