1 Timothy 5:24

Evident (prodhloi). "Openly plain," "plain before all." Old word, in N.T. only here and Hebrews 7:24 . Going before unto judgment (proagousai ei krisin). See 1 Timothy 1:18 for proagw. The sins are so plain that they receive instant condemnation. And some men also they follow after (tisin de kai epakolouqousin). Associative instrumental case tisin with epakolouqousin for which verb see verse 1 Timothy 10 , "dog their steps" (Parry) like 1 Peter 2:21 , not clearly manifest at first, but come out plainly at last. How true that is of secret sins.
