Titus 1:14 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Not giving heed (μὴ προσέχοντες)

Reprove sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, and may show their soundness by not giving heed, etc. See on 1 Timothy 1:4.

To Jewish fables (Ἱουδαΐκοῖς μύθοις)

See on 1 Timothy 1:4. Note Jewish. The nature of these we do not know.

Commandments of men (ἐντολαῖς ἀνθρώπων)

See on 1 Timothy 6:14. Comp. Colossians 2:22. Prescriptions concerning abstinence from meats, marriage, etc. The men are probably those of the circumcision, Titus 1:10. What they teach theoretically, by means of the myths, they bring to bear practically, by means of their precepts.

That turn from the truth (ἀποστρεφομένων τὴν ἀλήθειαν)

Comp. 2 Timothy 4:4, where the truth and fables appear in contrast.
