Titus 3:1

To be in subjection to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient (arcai exousiai upotassesqai peiqarcein). Remarkable double asyndeton, no kai (and) between the two substantives or the two verbs. Peiqarcein (to obey), old verb (from peiqomai, arch), in N.T. only here and Acts 27:21 . To be ready unto every good work (pro pan ergon agaqon etoimou einai). Pauline phrase ( 2 Corinthians 9:8 ; 2 Timothy 2:21 ; 2 Timothy 3:17 ), here adjective etoimo ( 2 Corinthians 9:5 ), there verb.
