"We should live soberly, righteously, and godly" (Titus 2:12)—The word "sophronos," here rendered "soberly," can also mean "with sound mind, temperately, discreetly" (Thayer: Greek Lexicon, p. 613). Moffatt suggests: "to live a life of self-mastery, of integrity and of piety;" Goodspeed: "Live serious, upright and godly lives;" and Weymouth (5th edition): "to live sober, upright and pious lives."
"That he might . . . purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works" (Titus 2:14)—The Greek term "periousios," here translated "peculiar," means rather "for one's own special possession" (Souter: Greek Lexicon, p. 200). Goodspeed translates: "a people of his own, eager to do right;" and Weymouth: "a people who should be His own, zealous for good works;" while Moffatt has: "to . . . secure for himself a clean people with a zest for good works."
