Hath appeared (epepanh). "Did appear," the first Epiphany (the Incarnation). Second aorist passive indicative of epipainw, old verb, in N.T. here, 1 Timothy 3:4 ; Luke 1:79 ; Acts 27:20 . Bringing salvation (swthrio). Old adjective from swthr (Saviour), here alone in N.T. except to swthrion (salvation, "the saving act") in Luke 2:30 ; Luke 3:6 ; Ephesians 6:17 . Instructing (paideuousa). See 1 Timothy 1:20 . Ungodliness (asebeian). See Romans 1:18 . Worldly lusts (ta kosmika epiqumia). Aristotle and Plutarch use kosmiko (from kosmo) about the universe as in Hebrews 9:1 about the earthly. Here it has alone in N.T. the sense of evil "in this present age" as with kosmo in 1 John 2:16 . The three adverbs set off the opposite (soberly swpronw, righteously dikaiw, godly eusebw).
