Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again; not PURLOINING, but showing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things. ( Titus 2:9-10 )
Lit. "for far off," hence, to carry away or steal; the word is the translation of nosphizomai, "to take away for oneself," "to secrete," "to steal," a word appropriate to those in the position of slaves in a master's service (Titus 2:10, "not purloining").
