New International Version
Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God--I say this to your shame.
King James Bible
Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.
Darby Bible Translation
Awake up righteously, and sin not; for some are ignorant of God: I speak to you as a matter of shame.
World English Bible
Wake up righteously, and don't sin, for some have no knowledge of God. I say this to your shame.
Young's Literal Translation
awake up, as is right, and sin not; for certain have an ignorance of God; for shame to you I say it.
1 Corinthians 15:34 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Awake to righteousness - Shake off your slumber; awake fully, thoroughly, δικαιως, as ye ought to do: so the word should be rendered; not awake to righteousness. Be in earnest; do not trifle with God, your souls, and eternity.
Sin not - For this will lead to the destruction both of body and soul. Life is but a moment; improve it. Heaven has blessings without end.
Some have not the knowledge of God - The original is very emphatic: αγνωσιαν γαρ Θεου τινες εχουσι, some have an ignorance of God; they do not acknowledge God. They have what is their bane; and they have not what would be their happiness and glory. To have an ignorance of God - a sort of substantial darkness, that prevents the light of God from penetrating the soul, is a worse state than to be simply in the dark, or without the Divine knowledge. The apostle probably speaks of those who were once enlightened, had once good morals, but were corrupted by bad company. It was to their shame or reproach that they had left the good way, and were now posting down to the chambers of death.

Eversley, Easter Day, 1871. 1 Cor. xv. 49. "As we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly." This season of Easter is the most joyful of all the year. It is the most comfortable time, in the true old sense of that word; for it is the season which ought to comfort us most--that is, it gives us strength; strength to live like men, and strength to die like men, when our time comes. Strength to live like men. Strength to fight against the temptation which …

The Unity of Apostolic Teaching
"They make ready their tongue like a bow, to shoot lies; it is not by truth that they triumph in the land. They go from one sin to another; they do not acknowledge me," declares the LORD.
Jesus replied, "You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God.
Why should any of you consider it incredible that God raises the dead?
And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.
1 Corinthians 4:14
I am writing this not to shame you but to warn you as my dear children.
1 Corinthians 6:5
I say this to shame you. Is it possible that there is nobody among you wise enough to judge a dispute between believers?
