    Mr 12:17,28,32,34 1Ti 6:3

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:8

    palabra sana, e irreprensible; que el adversario se avergence, no teniendo ninguno mal que decir de vosotros.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Titus 2:8

    Verse 8.
    Sound speech] logon ugih? Sound or healing doctrine. Human nature is in a state of disease; and the doctrine of the Gospel is calculated to remove the disease, and restore all to perfect health and soundness. All false doctrines leave men under the influence of this spiritual disease; the unadulterated doctrine of the Gospel alone can heal men.

    He that is of the contrary part] Whether this may refer to the Judaizing teachers in general, or to some one who might, by his false doctrine, have been disturbing the peace of the Churches in Crete, we cannot tell.

    Having no evil thing to say of you.] Against a person who is sound in his doctrine, and holy in his life, no evil can be justly alleged. He who reports evil of such a person must be confounded when brought to the test.

    Instead of peri umwn, of YOU, peri hmwn, of US, is the reading of CDEFG, and about forty others; with both the Syriac, all the Arabic, Slavonic, Vulgate, Itala, and several of the primitive fathers. This reading makes a better sense, and is undoubtedly genuine.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. Sound speech that cannot be condemned , etc.] In the public ministry, the wholesome words of our Lord Jesus should be used, and the doctrines of the Gospel be expressed, as near as can be, in the words which the Holy Ghost teacheth, and not in the enticing words of man's wisdom; such speech or language should be chosen, that is plain, easy, and acceptable, and conveys just ideas of things; and which being agreeable to the Scriptures of truth, and the analogy of faith, cannot be justly found fault with: or this may refer to private conversation, in which no rotten speech, or corrupt communication should proceed out of the mouth; nothing but what is pure, sound, graceful, and edifying; no filthiness, nor foolish talking and jesting, which are not convenient, and are rightly condemned. That he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed : that is, that he who is on the other side of the question, who opposes the truths of the Gospel, and is an adversary to them; whether he be an Heathen philosopher, or a Jewish Rabbi, or a judaizing teacher, or an heretical man, under the Christian name, may be put to shame and confusion; partly on account of that uncorruptness in doctrine and conversation, which he observes in the true and faithful ministers of the word, and is wanting in himself; and so being convinced, may be converted and brought to repentance, and to the acknowledgment of the truth; and partly on the account of the false charges and accusations brought by him against such: having no evil thing to say of you ; whether with respect to doctrine or practice. The Vulgate Latin version, and all the Oriental versions, read us, instead of you. The whole body is reproached for the sake of one or more.

    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!
