Arc Commentary :: The major contour of this passage are two command/explanations grounded in a single truth that the days are evil. The negative/positive command structure also lines up very neatly as can be seen in how all the negative commands seem to regard foolishness and the positive commands seem to regard wisdom. The series at the end dominates the passage as Paul gives us very clear results of walking in the wisdom given by the Spirit. Passage Commentary :: This passage is still in line with the string of commands Paul began back in 4:25 with reference to the New Man. Here we have an expansion on vv.3-14 and a different focus. The command to "watch carefully how you walk" points us back to both 4:1 and 5:8 as this consideration of our lifestyle in Christ is being defined. Here the definition is given in more general terms: "unwise/wise", "foolish/understanding", "dissipation/order". The Main Point: Christians are to conduct themselves according to the will of the Lord in Spirit controlled wisdom. The last command is the most explanatory as it parallels the first two nicely. I am taking the relationship between the command and its participles as action/result following Wallace’s explanation (p.639). In terms of the relationship of the participles to one another I am taking them as a series of results, 4 to be exact. The first result of the Spirit filling/controlling us is that we speak to each other in a distinct way. The second result is more vertical in that we begin singing to the Lord with our whole being, not just lip service. The third result is that we are characterized by an all encompassing thanksgiving (see 5:4) to God in Jesus’ name. The fourth result is that we submit to one another out of fear/reverence/respect for our shared master.
