1 Thessalonians 4:5 Parallel
CommentaryVincent's Word Studies
Not in the lust of concupiscence (μὴ ἐν πάθει ἐπιθυμίας)
Lit. in passion of desire. Not with avaricious greed. For ἐπιθυμία see on Mark 4:19. Its meaning is by no means limited to sensual lust; see, for instance, Luke 22:15. It is used as including all kinds of worldly desires, as Galatians 5:16, Galatians 5:24; 1 John 2:17. In Romans 7:7, especially of covetousness.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Pour out your anger on the nations that do not know you, and on the kingdoms that do not call upon your name!
Pour out your wrath on the nations that know you not, and on the peoples that call not on your name, for they have devoured Jacob; they have devoured him and consumed him, and have laid waste his habitation.
For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature;
Formerly, when you did not know God, you were enslaved to those that by nature are not gods.
remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
