Romans 13:13 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Honestly (εὐσχημόνως)

Honest is originally honorable, and so here. Compare Wyclif's version of 1 Corinthians 12:23 : "And the members that be unhonest have more honesty; for our honest members have need of none." From εὐ well, σχῆμα fashion. See on Matthew 17:2. Hence becomingly. Compare 1 Corinthians 14:40; 1 Thessalonians 4:12. The word refers more particularly to the outward life, and thus accords with walk, and in the day the time of observation.

Rioting (κώμοις)

Lit., revellings. See on 1 Peter 4:3.

Drunkenness (μέθαις)

See on Luke 21:34; see on John 2:10.

Wantonness (ἀσελγείαις)

See on lasciviousness, Mark 7:22. All these three are plural: riotings, drunkennesses, wantonnesses.

Envying (ζήλω)

Rev., jealousy. See on James 3:14.
