This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

All that are with me salute thee.--By these words St. Paul gives Titus to understand, that all the Christians that were then with him did embrace him with an endearing and loving affection, and would have their mindfulness of him witnessed by a kind and familiar salutation. These salutations had more in them than humanity, civility, and common courtesy; they were attestations of a truly Christian love and brotherly affection of one member of Christ towards another, for grace's sake.

Greet them that love us in the faith--That is, as Christians, as brethern, and fellow-members in Christ, Verus Amicus qui vere & in Deo diligit. Grace binds man to man in the strongest and most indissoluble bonds and ties.

Grace be with you all. Amen.--This is the salutation of St. Paul, always written with his own hand, in all his epistles, although the epistles themselves were writ by others; he did it to prevent counterfeits, that no spurious writings might be obtruded upon the church: and whereas he says, Grace be with you all, it plainly intimates, that although this epistle be written by name to Titus, that yet it was intended for the benefit and advantage of the whole church.
