CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
This witness is true - What Epimenides said of them nearly 600 years before continued still to be true. Their original character had undergone no moral change.
Rebuke them sharply - Αποτομως· Cuttingly, severely; show no indulgence to persons guilty of such crimes.
That they may be sound in the faith - That they may receive the incorrupt doctrine, and illustrate it by a holy and useful life.

Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction.

These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.
