    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:2

    Que los viejos sean templados, venerables, prudentes, sanos en la fe, en la caridad, en la tolerancia.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Titus 2:2

    Verse 2. That the aged
    men be sober] It is very likely that the word aged is to be taken here in its literal sense; that it refers to advanced years, and not to any office in the Church: the whole context seems to require this sense.

    For an old man to be a drunkard, a light and trifling person, and a glutton, and not to be sober, grave, and temperate, is not only blamable but monstrous. Seneca has well said: Luxuriosus adolescens peccat; senew insanit. "A young man addicted to a life of luxury transgresses; an old man thus addicted runs mad."


    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!

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    2. Aged
    men (presbutav). Only here, Luke i. 18; Philemon 9. To be understood of natural age, not of ecclesiastical position. Note that 1 Timothy 3, in treating of church officers, deals only with Bishops and Deacons. Nothing is said of Presbyters until chapter verse, where Timothy's relations to individual members of the church are prescribed. These church members are classified in this and the following verses as old men, old women, younger men, servants. In LXX presbuthv is occasionally interchanged with presbeuthv ambassador. See 2 Chronicles xxxii. 31; 1 Macc. xiii. :21; xiv. :21, 22; 2 Macc. xi. 34.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    2:2 {Aged
    men} (presbutas). See #Phm 1:9 for this word. For discussion of family life see also #Co 3:18-4:1; Eph 5:22-6:9; 1Ti 5:1-6:2. For the adjectives here see #1Ti 3:2,8; for the substantives see #1Ti 6:11.
