Titus Chapter 3

Titus 3:1
3:1 Put {1} them in mind to be subject to principalities and
    powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,

 (1) He declares particularly and separately that which he said
     before generally, noting out certain main and principal
     duties which men owe to men, and especially subjects to
     their magistrates.

Titus 3:3
3:3 {2} For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish,
    disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures,
    living in malice and envy, hateful, [and] hating one
    another.

 (2) He confirms again the former exhortation by propounding the
     free benefit of our regeneration, the symbol of which is
     our baptism. (Ed.)

Titus 3:5
3:5 Not by works of {a} righteousness which we have done, but
    according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of
    regeneration, and renewing of the {b} Holy Ghost;

    (a) Literally, "of works which are done in righteousness":
        and this passage fully refutes the doctrine of
        meritorious works.
    (b) Which the power of the Holy Spirit works.

Titus 3:8
3:8 {3} [This is] a faithful saying, and these things I will
    that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed
    in God might be careful to maintain {c} good works. These
    things are good and profitable unto men.

 (3) Again with great earnestness emphasises how we ought to
     give ourselves to true godliness and avoid all vain
     questions, which serve to nothing but to cause strife and
     debate.
     (c) Give themselves earnestly to good works.

Titus 3:10
3:10 {4} A man that is an heretick after the first and second
     admonition reject;

 (4) The ministers of the word must at once cast off heretics,
     that is, those who stubbornly and seditiously disquiet the
     Church, and will pay no attention to ecclesiastical
     admonitions.

Titus 3:12
3:12 {5} When I shall send Artemas unto thee, or Tychicus, be
     diligent to come unto me to Nicopolis: for I have
     determined there to winter.

 (5) Last of all, he writes a word or two regarding personal
     matters, and commends certain men.
