Ephesians 4:29

Corrupt (sapro). Rotten, putrid, like fruit ( Matthew 7:17 ), fish ( Matthew 13:48 ), here the opposite of agaqo (good). For edifying as the need may be (pro oikodomhn th creia). "For the build-up of the need," "for supplying help when there is need." Let no other words come out. That it may give (ina dwi). For this elliptical use of ina see on Matthew 5:33 .
