Romans 14:14 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

I know - am persuaded (οἶδα - πέπεισμαι)

"A rare conjunction of words, but fitted here to confirm against ignorance and doubt" (Bengel). For I know, see on John 2:4. The persuasion is not the result of his own reasoning, but of his fellowship in the Lord Jesus. So Rev, for by the Lord, etc.

Unclean (κοινὸν)

Lit., common. In the Levitical sense, as opposed to holy or pure. Compare Mark 7:2, "With defiled (κοιναῖς common), that is to say, with unwashen hands." See Acts 10:14.
