Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Titus 2:4

_ _ to be soberGreek, “self-restrained,” “discreet”; the same Greek as in Titus 2:2, “temperate.” (But see on Titus 2:2; compare Note, see on 2 Timothy 1:7). Alford therefore translates, “That they school (admonish in their duty) the young women to be lovers of their husbands,” etc. (the foundation of all domestic happiness). It was judicious that Titus, a young man, should admonish the young women, not directly, but through the older women.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Titus 2:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Titus 2:4

That they instruct the young women — These Timothy was to instruct himself; Titus, by the elder women. To love their husbands, their children — With a tender, temperate, holy, wise affection. O how hard a lesson.
