Ministry on This Verse

a faithful.
that thou.
which.
be.
good.
 The apostle is laying down the only ground of power for a fruit-bearing course; he is urgent with Titus, that he should insist constantly and thoroughly on the sure but exclusive truth of salvation by grace in all its fullness as well as reality. This was the apostle's first theme for individual souls everywhere and always; he now presses it on Titus. Without it there is no readiness or power for good works; without it conscience is clouded, the heart hardened: there is neither life nor peace where it is unknown. (On Titus 3:8-11 by W. Kelly)
 We are in relationship with God according to His rights; we are before God, who causes everything that He has Himself established to be respected by the conscience. (Titus 3 by J.N. Darby)

Faithful [is] the saying; and concerning these things I will that thou affirm strongly, in order that those who have believed God may be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men1;

WK Translation Notes

Faithful [is] the saying: The A.V. like some others is at least ambiguous, if not misleading; for one might infer from it that the faithful saying was merely the call of believers to maintain good works. This however is a rather unworthy sense; which the text, as well as the truth generally, disproves. (Exp. of Titus and Phile., p.114)
believed God: Tyndale is right here, and Wiclif, for with the latter "believen to" is equivalent to our "believed" simply. It is strange that the Rhemish did not cleave to the Vulgate which is correct, but errs with the later English Versions. Believing "God" means receiving His testimony, especially in the gospel, as just laid down, no less incumbent on and needed by Jews than by Gentiles. Besides this, we believe on (ἐπὶ) God and in (εἰς) Him, as made known to us in raising Christ from the dead (Rom. 4:24; 1 Pet. 1:21). But this goes farther, and we have to distinguish things that differ. (Exp. of Titus and Phile., p.113)
