Romans 13:13

Honestly (euschmonw). Paul is fond of the metaphor "walk" (peripatew), 33 times though not in the Pastoral Epistles. This old adverb (from euschmwn, graceful) occurs also in 1 Thessalonians 4:12 ; 1 Corinthians 14:40 . The English word "honest" means honourable (Latin honor) and so decent. Wycliff translates 1Co 12:32 by "unhonest," "honesty," "honest" for "less honourable, honour, honourable." Not in revelling (mh kwmoi). Plural "revellings." See on "Ga 5:21". Drunkenness (meqai). Plural again, "drunkennesses." See on "Ga 5:21". In chambering (koitai). Plural also. See on "Ro 9:10". Wantonness (aselgeiai). Plural likewise. See on 2 Corinthians 12:21 ; Galatians 5:19 . Not in strife and jealousy (mh eridi kai zhlwi). Singular here, but some MSS. have the plural like the previous words. Quarrelling and jealousy go with the other vices (Shedd).
