Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 1 Timothy 2:9-10.

1 Timothy 2:10

_ _ professingGreek, “promising”: engaging to follow.

_ _ with good works — The Greek preposition is not the same as in 1 Timothy 2:9; “by means of,” or “through good works.” Their adorning is to be effected by means of good works: not that they are to be clothed in, or with, them (Ephesians 2:10). Works, not words in public, is their province (1 Timothy 2:8, 1 Timothy 2:11, 1 Timothy 2:12; 1 Peter 3:1). Works are often mentioned in the Pastoral Epistles in order to oppose the loose living, combined with the loose doctrine, of the false teachers. The discharge of everyday duties is honored with the designation, “good works.”
