Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Titus 1:10

_ _ unruly — “insubordinate.”

_ _ and — omitted in the oldest manuscripts. “There are many unruly persons, vain talkers, and deceivers”; “unruly” being predicated of both vain talkers and deceivers.

_ _ vain talkers — opposed to “holding fast the faithful word” (Titus 1:9). “Vain jangling” (1 Timothy 1:6); “foolish questions, unprofitable and vain” (Titus 3:9). The source of the evil was corrupted Judaism (Titus 1:14). Many Jews were then living in Crete, according to Josephus; so the Jewish leaven remained in some of them after conversion.

_ _ deceivers — literally, “deceivers of the minds of others” (Greek, Galatians 6:3).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Titus 1:6-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Titus 1:10

They of the circumcision — The Jewish converts.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Titus 1:10

(10) For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the (l) circumcision:

(10) An applying of the general proposition to a particular: the Cretians above all others need sharp reprehensions: both because their minds are naturally given to lies and slothfulness, and because of certain covetous Jews, who under a pretence of godliness, partly combined certain vain traditions, and partly old ceremonies with the Gospel.

(l) Of the Jews, or rather of those Jews who went about to join Christ and the Law.
