1 Timothy 1:9 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Knowing (εἰδὼς)

The participle is connected with τὶς one, a man, in the preceding clause.

Is not made (οὐ κεῖται)

Lit. Is not laid down, set, appointed. Comp. 1 Thessalonians 3:3. This is the only instance of its use with νόμος law. That usage is frequent in Class. See, for instance, Thucyd. ii.37.

Righteous (δικαίῳ)

Morally upright. Not in the Pauline sense of justified by faith. Comp. 2 Timothy 2:22; 2 Timothy 3:16. This appears from the way in which the opposite of righteous is described in the next clause.

Lawless (ἀνόμοις)

Recognizing no law; a sense which accords better with the following context than not having a law, as 1 Corinthians 9:21.

Disobedient (ἀνυποτάκτοις)

Only in Pastorals and Hebrews. Better unruly. Disobedient is too specific. It means those who will not come into subjection. It is closely allied with lawless. In the one case no legal obligation is recognized; in the other, subjection to law is refused.

Ungodly - sinners (ἀσεβέσι - ἁμαρτωλοῖς)

The same collocation in 1 Peter 4:18; Jde 1:15. See on godliness, 2 Peter 1:3.

Unholy - profane (ἀνοσίοις - βεβήλοις)
