Eph 5:3-14 seems to be a series of contrasting commands written chiastically with its center being v8, highlighting the transformation from darkness to light, worked in might by the power of the Lord. In the first set (v3-7), Paul gives warnings with the emphasis on the what those who are darkness do, especially sexual immorality and crudeness. In the second set (v8c-14), Paul gives commands on what to do with those are acting in deeds of darkness to those who are in the light (probably with the intention of saving those who are doing them). Not unlike the gospel of John (1:4-5 Jesus is 'light of world' = 1 Jn 3 'God is love'), Paul seems to equate 'love' and 'light'. ('walk in love' v2; 'walk as children of light' v9). ------------ notes: v5 a 'gar' and PA Imperative or PA Indicative...uncommon...is this an idiom? LIGHT= John 3:19-21; 1:4-5 1 Jn 1:6-7 ---- Questions- -What does it mean for US to be light (v8) and for exposed deeds (v14) to become light? -What is the nature of the 'light' that makes all things visible into light? What does this mean, how is it so? A: Is this the sense of irresistible light, that might be akin to 'irresistible grace' i.e. TULIP? -What is 'sleeper' in v14? A believer or non? -Pastoral Q: v5 How does Paul motivate the Christians to not sin, and not be sexually immoral? (seems quite harsh). How does assurance and warning fit into the Apostolic model? Gal 5:21 "those who practive such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God" -The variant = 'fruit of light' v9 and 'fruit of Spirit' Gal 5:22

πορνεία δὲ καὶ ἀκαθαρσία πᾶσα ἢ πλεονεξία μηδὲ ὀνομαζέσθω ἐν ὑμῖν
But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you,
καθὼς πρέπει ἁγίοις
as is proper among saints.
ideaexplanation
καὶ αἰσχρότης καὶ μωρολογία ἢ εὐτραπελία
And Let there be no filthiness (and) foolish talk nor crude joking,
ἃ οὐκ ἀνῆκεν
which are out of place,
ἀλλὰ μᾶλλον εὐχαριστία
but instead let there be thanksgiving.
negativepositive
series
τοῦτο γὰρ ἴστε γινώσκοντες ὅτι πᾶς πόρνος ἢ ἀκάθαρτος ἢ πλεονέκτης ὅ ἐστιν εἰδωλολάτρης οὐκ ἔχει κληρονομίαν ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ τοῦ Χριστοῦ καὶ θεοῦ
For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
ground
μηδεὶς ὑμᾶς ἀπατάτω κενοῖς λόγοις
Let no one deceive you with empty words,
διὰ ταῦτα γὰρ ἔρχεται ἡ ὀργὴ τοῦ θεοῦ ἐπὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς τῆς ἀπειθείας
for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
μὴ οὖν γίνεσθε συμμέτοχοι αὐτῶν
Therefore do not become partners with them;
bilateral
ἦτε γάρ ποτε σκότος
for at one time you were darkness,
νῦν δὲ φῶς ἐν κυρίῳ
but now you are light in the Lord.
concessive
ὡς τέκνα φωτὸς περιπατεῖτε
Walk as children of light
ὁ γὰρ καρπὸς τοῦ φωτὸς ἐν πάσῃ ἀγαθωσύνῃ καὶ δικαιοσύνῃ καὶ ἀληθείᾳ
(for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true),
δοκιμάζοντες τί ἐστιν εὐάρεστον τῷ κυρίῳ
and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.
καὶ μὴ συγκοινωνεῖτε τοῖς ἔργοις τοῖς ἀκάρποις τοῦ σκότους
[And] Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness,
μᾶλλον δὲ καὶ ἐλέγχετε
but instead expose them.
τὰ γὰρ κρυφῇ γινόμενα ὑπ' αὐτῶν αἰσχρόν ἐστιν καὶ λέγειν
For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret.
τὰ δὲ πάντα ἐλεγχόμενα ὑπὸ τοῦ φωτὸς
But when anything is exposed by the light,
φανεροῦται
it becomes visible,
actionresult
πᾶν γὰρ τὸ φανερούμενον φῶς ἐστιν
for anything that becomes visible is light.

ἔγειρε ὁ καθεύδων
"Awake, O sleeper,
καὶ ἀνάστα ἐκ τῶν νεκρῶν
and arise from the dead,
καὶ ἐπιφαύσει σοι ὁ Χριστός
and Christ will shine on you."
