Luke 6:43 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

A good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit (οὐ ἐστιν δένδρον καλὸν ποιοῦν καρπὸν σαπρόν)

Rev., more correctly, there is no good tree that bringeth, etc. Σαπρόν, corrupt, is etymologically akin to σήπω, in James 5:2 : "Your riches are corrupted." The word means rotten, stale.

Neither

Rev., nor again. The A. V. omits again (πάλιν, on the other hand).
