Titus 2: What does "becometh" mean?

"But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:"
Titus 2:1

From dictionary.com:
become:
–verb (used with object)
3.to be attractive on; befit in appearance; look well on: That gown becomes you.
4.to be suitable or necessary to the dignity, situation, or responsibility of: conduct that becomes an officer.

From the verse and the meaning of the word, I understand that Titus 2 is a discussion of things that are "suitable or necessary to the dignity" of sound doctrine.

I want to be suitable, so I think the chapter deserves my attention.

I love this chapter but it is never preached. If it is, some of the key verses are preached wrong or just plain skipped over.
