Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Titus 2:10

_ _ Not purloiningGreek, “Not appropriating” what does not belong to one. It means “keeping back” dishonestly or deceitfully (Acts 5:2, Acts 5:3).

_ _ showing — manifesting in acts.

_ _ all — all possible.

_ _ good — really good; not so in mere appearance (Ephesians 6:5, Ephesians 6:6; Colossians 3:22-24). “The heathen do not judge of the Christian’s doctrines from the doctrine, but from his actions and life” [Chrysostom]. Men will write, fight, and even die for their religion; but how few live for it! Translate, “That they may adorn the doctrine of our Savior God,” that is, God the Father, the originating author of salvation (compare Note, see on 1 Timothy 1:1). God deigns to have His Gospel-doctrine adorned even by slaves, who are regarded by the world as no better than beasts of burden. “Though the service be rendered to an earthly master, the honor redounds to God, as the servant’s goodwill flows from the fear of God” [Theophylact]. Even slaves, low as is their status, should not think the influence of their example a matter of no consequence to religion: how much more those in a high position. His love in being “our Savior” is the strongest ground for our adorning His doctrine by our lives. This is the force of “For” in Titus 2:11.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Titus 2:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Titus 2:10

Showing all good fidelity — Soft, obliging faithfulness That they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour — More than St. Paul says of kings. How he raises the lowness of his subject! So may they, the lowness of their condition.
