James 5:3 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Is cankered (κατίωται)

Only here in New Testament, from ἰός, rust, as in the following sentence. Also poison, as James 3:8. The preposition κατά indicates thoroughness, completely rusted.

Flesh (τὰς σάρκας)

The noun is plural: the fleshy parts of the body. So Sept. (2 Kings 9:36): "the flesh (τὰς σάρκας) of Jezebel." So Revelation 19:18.
