Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Titus 1:16

_ _ They profess — that is, make a profession acknowledging God. He does not deny their theoretical knowledge of God, but that they practically know Him.

_ _ deny him — the opposite of the previous “profess” or “confess” Him (1 Timothy 5:8; 2 Timothy 2:12; 2 Timothy 3:5).

_ _ abominable — themselves, though laying so much stress on the contracting of abomination from outward things (compare Leviticus 11:10-13; Romans 2:22).

_ _ disobedient — to God (Titus 3:3; Ephesians 2:2; Ephesians 5:6).

_ _ reprobate — rejected as worthless when tested (see on Romans 1:28; see on 1 Corinthians 9:27; see on 2 Timothy 3:8).
