“Holding fast the faithfull word, as hee hath beene taught, that he may bee able by sound doctrine, both to exhort and to conuince the gainsayers.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
1:9 As he hath been taught - Perhaps it might be more literally rendered, according to the teaching, or doctrine, of the apostles; alluding to #Acts 2:42|.
Tit 1:9 Holding fast the faithful word. Sound in the gospel doctrine, and able to teach it to others, as well as to refute opposers.
