Titus 1:6 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Faithful children (τέκνα πιστά)

Better, believing children; or, as Rev., children that believe. Comp. 1 Timothy 3:4.

Not accused of riot (μὴ ἐν κατηγορίᾳ ἀσωτίας)

Lit. not in accusation of profligacy. For κατηγορία see on 1 Timothy 5:19. Ἁσωτία, lit. unsavingness; hence, dissoluteness, profligacy. Comp. Luke 15:13, of the prodigal son, who lived unsavingly (ἀσώτως). Only here, Ephesians 5:18, and 1 Peter 4:4 (note).
