1 Timothy 6:7 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

And it is certain we can carry, etc.

Omit and and certain. Rend. ὅτι because. The statement is: We brought nothing into the world because we can carry nothing out. The fact that we brought nothing into the world is shown by the impossibility of our taking with us anything out of it; since if anything belonging to us in our premundane state had been brought by us into the world, it would not be separated from us at our departure from the world. Comp. Job 1:21; Ecclesiastes 5:15; Psalm 49:17.
