Titus 2:5 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Keepers at home (οἰκουργούς)

Wrong. Rend. workers at home. N.T.o. olxx, oClass.

Good (ἀγαθάς)

Not attributive of workers at home, but independent. Rend. kindly. The mistress of the house is to add to her thrift, energy, and strict discipline, benign, gracious, heartily kind demeanor. Comp. Matthew 20:15; 1 Peter 2:18; Acts 9:36. See on Acts 11:24; see on Romans 5:7.

Obedient (ὑποτασσομένας)

Better, subject or in subjection. Frequent in Paul, but not often in the active voice. See on James 4:7; see on Romans 8:7; see on Philippians 3:21; and comp. 1 Corinthians 14:34; Ephesians 5:22; Colossians 3:18.
