Titus 2:10 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Purloining (νοσφιζομένους)

Only here and Acts 5:2, Acts 5:3. lxx, Joshua 7:1; 2 Macc. 4:32. Often in Class. From νόσφι apart. The fundamental idea of the word is to put far away from another; to set apart for one's self; hence to purloin and appropriate to one's own use. Purloin is akin to prolong: prolongyn or purlongyn "to put fer awey." Old French porloignier or purloignier.

Shewing all good fidelity (πᾶσαν πίστιν ἐνδεικνομένος ἀγαθήν)

The phrase N.T.o. This is the only instance in N.T. of ἀγαθός with πίστις.

Adorn the doctrine (τὴν διδασκαλίαν κοσμῶσιν)

The phrase N.T.o. For κοσμῶσιν adorn, see on 1 Timothy 2:9.
