a
not given to wine: But is there no intended reference to disorder through excess of wine in πάροινον, which... [the RV gives] simply as "brawler," expecially as "striker" follows? (Bible Treasury 14:30)
striker ^: Text. Rec. has here the clause, μὴ αἰσχροκερδῆ, "not seeking gain basely," taken apparently from ver. 8 where it is all right, yet more probably from Tit. 1:7. (Exp. of Two Epist. to Timothy, p.58)
striker ^: the Revisers rightly omit "not greedy of filthy lucre," which was introduced from Tit. 1. The caution here follows in "no lover of money." (Bible Treasury 14:30)
