    Definitions for Titus 1:10

    Vain - Empty; foolish; useless.

    Clarke's Commentary on Titus 1:10

    There are many unruly - Persons who will not receive the sound doctrine, nor come under wholesome discipline.

    Vain talkers - Empty boasters of knowledge, rights, and particular privileges; all noise, empty parade, and no work.

    Deceivers - Of the souls of men by their specious pretensions.

    They of the circumcision - The Judaizing teachers, who maintained the necessity of circumcision, and of observing the rites and ceremonies of the Mosaic law, in order to the perfecting of the Gospel.

    Barnes' Notes on Titus 1:10

    For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers - There are many persons who are indisposed to submit to authority (see the word unruly in Titus 1:6); many who are vain talkers - who are more given to talk than to the duties of practical religion (see the character of "Talkative," in the Pilgrim's Progress); and many who live to deceive others under the mask of religion. They make great pretensions to piety; they are fluent in argument, and they urge their views in a plausible manner.

    Specially they of the circumcision - Jews, spoken of here as "of the circumcision" particularly, because they urged the necessity of circumcision in order that men might be saved; Notes, Acts 15:1. This proves that there were not a few Jews in the island of Crete.

    Wesley's Notes on Titus 1:10

    1:10 They of the circumcision - The Jewish converts.
