Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Titus 2:7

_ _ Inwith respect to all things.

_ _ thyself a pattern — though but a young man thyself. All teaching is useless unless the teacher’s example confirm his word.

_ _ in doctrinein thy ministerial teaching (showing) uncorruptness, that is, untainted purity of motive on thy part (compare 2 Corinthians 11:3), so as to be “a pattern” to all. As “gravity,” etc., refers to Titus himself, so “uncorruptness”; though, doubtless, uncorruptness of the doctrine will be sure to follow as a consequence of the Christian minister being of simple, uncorrupt integrity himself.

_ _ gravity — dignified seriousness in setting forth the truth.

_ _ sincerity — omitted in the oldest manuscripts.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Titus 2:1-10.
