    No erris; los malos compaeros corrompen el buen carcter.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 15:33

    Verse 33. Be not
    deceived] Do not impose on yourselves, and permit not others to do it.

    Evil communications corrupt good manners.] There are many sayings like this among the Greek poets; but this of the apostle, and which according to the best MSS. makes an Iambic verse, is generally supposed to have been taken from Menander's lost comedy of Thais.

    fqeirousin hqh crhsq omiliai kakai? Bad company good morals doth corrupt.

    There is a proverb much like this among the rabbins: akyfrl yyky rqwa akyfr rtw yyky yrwa yrt "There were two dry logs of wood, and one green log; but the dry logs burnt up the green log." There is no difficulty in this saying; he who frequents the company of bad or corrupt men will soon be as they are. He may be sound in the faith, and have the life and power of godliness, and at first frequent their company only for the sake of their pleasing conversation, or their literary accomplishments: and he may think his faith proof against their infidelity; but he will soon find, by means of their glozing speeches, his faith weakened; and when once he gets under the empire of doubt, unbelief will soon prevail; his bad company will corrupt his morals; and the two dry logs will soon burn up the green one.

    The same sentiment in nearly the same words is found in several of the Greek writers; AEschylus, Sept. Theb. ver. 605: en panti pragei d esq omiliav kakhv kakiov ouden? "In every matter there is nothing more deleterious than evil communication." - Diodourus Siculus, lib. xvi. cap.

    li5: taiv ponhraiv omiliaiv diefqeire ta hqh twn anqrwpwn? "With these evil communications he corrupted the morals of men." tauta men outwv isqi? kakoisi de mh prosomilo andrasin, allq aiei twn agaqwn eceo? kai meta toisin pine kai esqie, kai meta toisin ize, kai andane toiv, wn megalh dunamiv.

    esqlwn men gar ap esqla maqhseai? hn de kakoisi summicqhv, apoleiv kai ton eonta noon. Theogn. Sent., ver. 31-36.

    Know this: Thou must not keep company with the wicked, but converse always with good men. With such eat, drink, and associate. Please those who have the greatest virtue. From good men thou mayest learn good things; but if thou keep company with the wicked, thou wilt lose even the intelligence which thou now possessest.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 33. Be not deceived , etc.] By such as deny the doctrine of the resurrection, and by their reasonings about it; or by such libertines who go into the denial of it, and argue from thence in favour of their licentious course of life: evil communications corrupt good manners . This is a sentence taken out of Menander, an Heathen poet, showing how dangerous is the conversation of evil men, and what an influence bad principles communicated and imbibed, have on the lives and practices of men. This the apostle cites not out of ostentation, or to show his reading, learning, and acquaintance with such sort of writers; but partly to observe, that this was a truth obvious by the light of nature, and partly because such a testimony might be more regarded by the Corinthians, who might be fond of such authors, and what was said by them; just as when he was at Athens among the philosophers there, he cites a passage out of Aratus, ( Acts 17:28) as he does another out of Epimenides concerning the Cretians, ( Titus 1:12).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 20-34 - All that are by
    faith united to Christ, are by his resurrection assure of their own. As through the sin of the first Adam, all men becam mortal, because all had from him the same sinful nature, so, throug the resurrection of Christ, shall all who are made to partake of the Spirit, and the spiritual nature, revive, and live for ever. There wil be an order in the resurrection. Christ himself has been the first-fruits; at his coming, his redeemed people will be raised befor others; at the last the wicked will rise also. Then will be the end of this present state of things. Would we triumph in that solemn an important season, we must now submit to his rule, accept his salvation and live to his glory. Then shall we rejoice in the completion of his undertaking, that God may receive the whole glory of our salvation that we may for ever serve him, and enjoy his favour. What shall thos do, who are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? Perhap baptism is used here in a figure, for afflictions, sufferings, an martyrdom, as Mt 20:22, 23. What is, or will become of those who have suffered many and great injuries, and have even lost their lives, for this doctrine of the resurrection, if the dead rise not at all Whatever the meaning may be, doubtless the apostle's argument wa understood by the Corinthians. And it is as plain to us tha Christianity would be a foolish profession, if it proposed advantage to themselves by their faithfulness to God; and to have our fruit to holiness, that our end may be everlasting life. But we must not liv like beasts, as we do not die like them. It must be ignorance of God that leads any to disbelieve the resurrection and future life. Thos who own a God and a providence, and observe how unequal things are in the present life, how frequently the best men fare worst, cannot doub as to an after-state, where every thing will be set to rights. Let u not be joined with ungodly men; but warn all around us, especiall children and young persons, to shun them as a pestilence. Let us awak to righteousness, and not sin.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    Communications (omiliai). Wrong. Lit., companionships. Rev., company.

    Manners (hqh). Only here in the New Testament. Originally hqov means an accustomed seat or haunt; thence custom, usage; plural, manners, morals, character. The passage, "Evil company doth corrupt good manners," is an iambic line; either the repetition of a current proverb, or a citation of the same proverb from the poet Menander. Compare Aeschylus: "Alas for the ill-luck in mortals that brings this honest man into company with those who have less regard for religion. In every matter, indeed, nothing is worse than evil-fellowship" (omiliav) ("Seven against Thebes," 593-595).

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    15:33 {Be not deceived} (me planasqe). Do not be led astray (planaw) by such a false philosophy of life. {Evil company} (homiliai kakai). Evil companionships. Old word, homilia, from homilos (a crowd, gang, bunch). Only here in N.T. Good manners (eqe). Old word (kin to eqos) custom, usage, morals. Good morals here. this line of poetry (iambic) occurs in Menander. It may be a current proverb. Paul could have gotten it from either source.
