Titus 1:15 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Unto the pure (τοῖς καθαροῖς)

The pure in heart and conscience. See 2 Timothy 1:3.

All things are pure

Comp. 1 Timothy 4:4, 1 Timothy 4:5; Acts 10:15; Mark 7:15, Mark 7:18, Mark 7:19; 1 Corinthians 10:26, 1 Corinthians 10:30; Romans 14:20. The aphorism is suggested by the commandments of men, Titus 1:14.

Unto them that are defiled (τοῖς μεμιαμμένοις)

Only here in Pastorals. See also John 18:28 (note); Hebrews 12:15; Jde 1:8. Only in John 18:28 in a ceremonial sense. Elsewhere of moral pollution.

Nothing is pure

Their moral pollution taints everything with its own quality. The purest things become suggestors and ministers of impurity.

Mind and conscience (ὁ νοῦς καὶ ἡ συνείδησις)

For νοῦς see on Romans 7:23 : for συνείδησις, see on 1 Peter 3:16.
