    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:12

    Ensendonos que, renunciando a la impiedad y a los deseos mundanos, vivamos en este siglo templada, justa, y píamente,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Titus 2:12

    Verse 12.
    Teaching us, that, denying, &c.] paideuousa? Instructing us as children are instructed. Christ is the great teacher; and men, in order to learn, must become his disciples-must put themselves under his tuition, and learn of him.

    Denying ungodliness] asebeian? All things contrary to God; whatever would lead us to doubt his being, deny any of his essential attributes; his providence or government of the world, and his influence on the souls of men. Every thing, also, which is opposed to his true worship; theoretical and practical atheism, deism, and irreligion in general.

    Worldly lusts] Such desires, affections, and appetites, as men are governed by who have their portion in this life, and live without God in the world.

    Gluttony, drunkenness, lasciviousness, anger, malice, and revenge; together with the immoderate love of riches, power, and fame.

    We should live soberly] Having every temper, appetite, and desire, under the government of reason, and reason itself under the government of the Spirit of God.

    Righteously] Rendering to every man his due, injuring no person in his body, mind, reputation, or property; doing unto all as we would they should do to us; and filling up the duties of the particular stations in which it has pleased God to fix us, committing no sin, omitting no duty.

    And godly] eusebwv. Just the reverse of what is implied in ungodliness. See above.

    In this present world] Not supposing that any thing will be purified in the world to come that is not cleansed in this. The three words above evidently include our duty to God, to our neighbour, and to ourselves. 1.

    We are to live soberly in respect to ourselves. 2. Righteously in respect to our neighbour. And 3. Godly, or piously, in respect to our Maker.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. Teaching us , etc.] Not all men, to whom the Gospel appears in its outward ministry; for there are many who externally receive the Gospel, and profess it, who are never influentially taught by it to deny sin, or love holiness of life; they profess in words to know it, but in works deny it; they have a form of godliness, but deny its power: but the persons effectually taught by the Gospel are the us, to whom it was come, not in word only, but in power; and so taught them, not only doctrinally, but with efficacy, both negative and positive holiness, as follows: that denying ungodliness and worldly lusts ; all impiety, or sin more immediately against God; or which is a violation of the first table of the law, as idolatry, will worship, superstition, perjury, and the like; and all sinful lusts, as the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the pride of life; which fill the world, and are reigning lusts in it, and which are common to the men of the world; and they are under the power of: to deny these, is to abhor and detest them, and to abstain from them, and have nothing to do with them: and this lesson of self-denial, or of the denial of sinful self, the Gospel teaches, and urges upon the most powerful motives and arguments; and when attended by the Spirit of God, does it effectually: so that we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world ; not, only temperately, but wisely and prudently, as children of the light, on whom, and into whom the Gospel has shined; and righteously among men, giving to every man his due, and dealing with all according to the rules of equity and justice; as being made new men, created unto righteousness and true holiness; and as being dead to sin, through the death of Christ, and so living unto righteousness, or in a righteous manner; and as being justified by the righteousness of Christ, revealed in the Gospel: and godly; in a godly manner, according to the Word of God, and agreeably to the will of God; and in all godly exercises, both public and private, and to the glory of God: and that as long as in this present world : which lies in wickedness, and in which there are so many strong temptations to a contrary way of living. The Gospel then is no licentious doctrine; it is according to godliness, and teaches and promotes it; it is an holy faith, yea, a most holy faith; wherefore it is a vile slander to charge it with leading to looseness of life and conversation.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-15 - The
    doctrine of grace and salvation by the gospel, is for all ranks an conditions of men. It teaches to forsake sin; to have no more to d with it. An earthly, sensual conversation suits not a heavenly calling It teaches to make conscience of that which is good. We must look to God in Christ, as the object of our hope and worship. A gospe conversation must be a godly conversation. See our duty in a very fe words; denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, living soberly righteously, and godly, notwithstanding all snares, temptations corrupt examples, ill usage, and what remains of sin in the believer' heart, with all their hinderances. It teaches to look for the glorie of another world. At, and in, the glorious appearing of Christ, the blessed hope of Christians will be complete: To bring us to holines and happiness was the end of Christ's death. Jesus Christ, that grea God and our Saviour, who saves not only as God, much less as Man alone but as God-man, two natures in one person. He loved us, and gav himself for us; and what can we do less than love and give up ourselve to him! Redemption from sin and sanctification of the nature go together, and make a peculiar people unto God, free from guilt an condemnation, and purified by the Holy Spirit. All Scripture i profitable. Here is what will furnish for all parts of duty, and the right discharge of them. Let us inquire whether our whole dependence i placed upon that grace which saves the lost, pardons the guilty, an sanctifies the unclean. And the further we are removed from boasting of fancied good works, or trusting in them, so that we glory in Chris alone, the more zealous shall we be to abound in real good works __________________________________________________________________
