Footnotes

  1. Titus 1:13 Roughly and plainly, and go not about the bush with them.
  2. Titus 1:15 He showeth in few words, that purity consisteth not in any external worship, and that that is according to the old Law, (as in difference of meats, and washing, and other such things which are abolished) but in the mind and conscience: and whosoever teach otherwise, know not what is true religion indeed, and also are nothing less than that they would seem to be.
  3. Titus 1:15 If our minds and conscience be unclean, what cleanness is there in us before regeneration?
