“Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.”
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.
