1 Corinthians 6:10 Parallel
Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Nor covetous; - See the note at 1 Corinthians 5:10. It is remarkable that the apostle always ranks "the covetous" with the most abandoned classes of people.

Nor revilers - The same word which in 1 Corinthians 5:11, is rendered railer; see the note at that place.

Nor extortioners - See the note at 1 Corinthians 5:11.

Shall inherit - Shall enter; shalt be saved, 1 Corinthians 6:9.

"Bought with a Price"
You will notice that in this chapter the apostle Paul has been dealing with sins of the flesh, with fornication and adultery. Now, it is at all times exceedingly difficult for the preacher either to speak or to write upon this subject; it demands the strictest care to keep the language guarded, so that while we are denouncing a detestable evil we do not ourselves promote it by a single expression that should be otherwise than chaste and pure. Observe how well the apostle Paul succeeds, for though

Death to Sin through Christ
"Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord."-Romans 6:11. THE connection of this passage will help us to understand its meaning. Near the close of the previous chapter Paul had said, "The law entered that the offence might abound; but where sin abounded, grace did much more abound, that as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness, unto eternal life, by Jesus Christ our Lord." He speaks here of
