esv
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 for saints.
ground
καὶ αἰσχρότης καὶ μωρολογία ἢ εὐτραπελία,
( Additionally ) Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking,
ἃ οὐκ ἀνῆκεν,
which are out of place,
series
ἀλλὰ μᾶλλον εὐχαριστία.
( Rather , here is what should characterize the "new man") but instead let there be thanksgiving .
negativepositive
τοῦτο γὰρ ἴστε γινώσκοντες,
( Warning: why shouldn't we do the list mentioned?) For you may be sure of this,
ὅτι πᾶς πόρνος ἢ ἀκάθαρτος ἢ πλεονέκτης,
( Expressed content ) that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous
ὅ ἐστιν εἰδωλολάτρης,
(covetousness, which is idolatry),
ideaexplanation
οὐκ ἔχει κληρονομίαν ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ τοῦ Χριστοῦ καὶ θεοῦ.
has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
Μηδεὶς ὑμᾶς ἀπατάτω κενοῖς λόγοις•
( Additionally, from a cultural perspective, dont' get wrapped up in the lies of the world: ) 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 ( namely, vv.3-5 ) 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,
( Paul's ultimate & more fundamental reason why NOT to partake in the lifestyle of sinners: ) for at one time you were darkness,
νῦν δὲ φῶς ἐν κυρίῳ•
but now you are light in the Lord .
ὡς τέκνα φωτὸς περιπατεῖτε
( Since we "are light", we should therefore ) Walk as children of light
- ὁ γὰρ καρπὸς τοῦ φωτὸς ἐν πάσῃ ἀγαθωσύνῃ καὶ δικαιοσύνῃ καὶ ἀληθείᾳ -
( A child of light will produce a certain kind of fruit :) (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true),
δοκιμάζοντες τί ἐστιν εὐάρεστον τῷ κυρίῳ,
(The manner in which we "walk as children of light" is by) discerning 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.
actionmanner
τὰ γὰρ κρυφῇ γινόμενα ὑπʼ αὐτῶν αἰσχρόν ἐστιν καὶ λέγειν,
( This particular ground is grounding v.11 ) For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret.
τὰ δὲ πάντα ἐλεγχόμενα ὑπὸ τοῦ φωτὸς φανεροῦται,
But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible,
πᾶν γὰρ τὸ φανερούμενον φῶς ἐστιν.
for anything that becomes visible is light.
διὸ λέγει• ἔγειρε, ὁ καθεύδων, καὶ ἀνάστα ἐκ τῶν νεκρῶν, καὶ ἐπιφαύσει σοι ὁ Χριστός.
( Perhaps an early Christian hymn, referring back to v.13 ( possibly, contra O'Brien) talking about a believer who has lapsed into sin. Believers are to expose the sin of other believers because living in darkness goes agaist vv.8-11). Therefore it says, “Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
