Galatians 6:8

Corruption (pqoran). For this old word from pqeirw, see on 1 Corinthians 15:42 . The precise meaning turns on the context, here plainly the physical and moral decay or rottenness that follows sins of the flesh as all men know. Nature writes in one's body the penalty of sin as every doctor knows. Eternal life (zwhn aiwnion). See on Matthew 25:46 for this interesting phrase so common in the Johannine writings. Plato used aiwnio for perpetual. See also 2 Thessalonians 1:9 . It comes as nearly meaning "eternal" as the Greek can express that idea.
