1 Corinthians 5:9 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

I write - in my epistle

American Rev., as it is I wrote. The reference is probably to a former letter now lost. Some explain ἔγραψα I wrote as the epistolary aorist (see on 1 John 2:13); but the words in my epistle seem to favor the other view.

To company (συναναμίγνυσθαι)

Only here and 2 Thessalonians 3:14. The translation company is inadequate, but cannot perhaps be bettered. The word is compounded of σύν together, ἀνά up and down among, and, μίγνυμι to mingle. It denotes, therefore, not only close, but habitual, intercourse.
