Titus 2:1 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Speak thou (λάλει)

See on Matthew 28:18; see on John 8:26.

Become (πρέπει)

Originally, to stand out; be conspicuous. Thus Homer, Od. viii. 172: μετὰ δὲ πρέπει ἀγρομένοισιν he is conspicuous among those who are assembled. Eurip. Hel. 215; Ζεὺς πρέπων δἰ αἰθερος Zeus shining clearly through the aether. Hence, to become conspicuously fit; to become; beseem. In N.T. in the impersonal forms πρέπον ἐστὶν it is becoming (Matthew 3:15); πρέπει it becometh (Ephesians 5:3); ἔπρεπεν it became (Hebrews 2:10). With a subject nominative, 1 Timothy 2:10; Hebrews 7:26.
