Titus 2:10

Not purloining (mh nosfizomenouv). Present middle participle of nosfizw, old verb (from nosfi, apart), in middle to set apart for oneself, to embezzle, in N.T. only here and Acts 5:2 f.

Fidelity (pistin). See Galatians 5:22; I Timothy 5:12 for pistiv in the sense of faithfulness. Nowhere else in the N.T. do we have agaqh with pistiv as here, but an Oxyr. papyrus (iii. 494, 9) has this very phrase (pasan pistin endeiknumenh). Westcott and Hort put agaphn in the margin. See Titus 3:2.

That they may adorn (ina kosmwsin). Final clause with ina and present active subjunctive. See I Timothy 2:9 for kosmew. Paul shows slaves how they may "adorn" the teaching of God.
