    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:21

    envidias, homicidios, borracheras, orgías, y cosas semejantes a stas; de las cuales os denuncio, como ya os he anunciado, que los que hacen tales cosas no heredarn el Reino de Dios.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Galatians 5:21

    Verse 21. Envyings] fqonoi? "
    Pain felt, and malignity conceived, at the sight of excellence or happiness." A passion the most base and the least curable of all that disgrace or degrade the fallen soul. See on Rom. xiii. 13.

    Murders] fonoi? Similarity of sound to the preceding seems to have suggested the word in this association; it is wanting in several MSS.

    Murder signifies the destruction of human life; and as he who hates his brother in his heart is ready to take away his life, so he is called a murderer. After all the casuistry of man, it does not appear that the right of taking away a human life on any pretense, except for the crime of murder belongs to any but the Maker and Judge of all men.

    Drunkenness] meqai? Taking more wine or any kind of inebriating liquor than is necessary for health; whatever unfits for public, domestic, or spiritual duties; even the cares of the world, when they intoxicate the mind. See on Rom. xiii. 13.

    Revellings] kwmoi? Lascivious feastings, with obscene songs, music, &c. See on Rom. xiii. 13.

    And such like] kai ta omoia toutoiv? All that proceeds from the evil passions of a fallen spirit, besides those above specified; and all that the law of God specifies and condemns.

    Of the which I tell you before] When I first preached the Gospel to you.

    As I have also told you in time past] When I paid my second visit to you; for the apostle did visit them twice. See Acts xvi. 6; xviii. 23; and see preface, p. 385.

    Shall not inherit] They are not children of God, and therefore cannot inherit the kingdom which belongs only to the children of the Divine family.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 21. Envyings . etc..] Uneasy distressing tortures of the mind, grieving at the good of others, that any should be in an equal, or in a better condition than themselves: murders , destroying of men's lives, which is often the consequence of the above evils: drunkenness ; excess in drinking of wine or strong drink, whereby the stomach is overcharged, the mind is intoxicated, and the body enfeebled and unable to perform its office; this is often the source of many, or all of the works of the flesh before mentioned: revellings ; excess in feed, nocturnal riotings in eating, drinking, dancing, singing, chambering and wantonness. The Syriac version renders it, armz , lascivious singing; and the Arabic version, songs which are a part of the nightly revels: and such like which are of the same nature and kind; so the apostle shuts up the account, it being too tedious to give an enumeration of all the works of the flesh; nor was it necessary, judgment may be made of the rest by these; nor might it be so proper, since the carnal heart is but the more pleased with, and irritated by, the mention of evil things: of the which I tell you before : before the judge comes and the awful judgment proceeds, when these will all be made manifest, and every man will be judged according to his works: this the apostle did, as putting them in mind of the evil nature of these things, and assuring them of the bad consequences that would follow, if grace prevented not: as I have also told you in time past ; when he first preached among them, and warned them to flee from the wrath to come; he then laid before them the evil nature of these things, the dreadful effects of them, and showed that there was no salvation from them, but by Christ: and that they which do such things, shall not inherit the kingdom of God ; by which is meant the heavenly glory, called a kingdom, because of the grandeur and magnificence of that state; and of God, because it is of his preparing and giving, what he calls his own to by his grace, and puts them into the possession of and where he reigns and will reign for ever, and show forth the glory of his majesty: this is possessed in way of inheritance, which shows it to be a bequest of our heavenly Father's, a free grace gift of his, and not to be obtained by the works of the law, or merits of men; but what belongs, and is peculiar to the children of God, who are so by adopting grace: now they that do such works of the flesh as before enumerated; that is, that live in the commission of these things, whose whole lives are employed in such work, living and dying in such a state, without repentance towards God and faith in Christ, shall never enjoy eternal life and happiness; though such who have done these things, being brought to a sense of them, and to the blood and righteousness of Christ for pardon and justification, for life and salvation; such, notwithstanding the works of the flesh done by them, shall, through the free grace of God, and the propitiatory sacrifice of Christ, inherit the kingdom and glory of God.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 16-26 - If it be our care to act under the guidance and
    power of the blesse Spirit, though we may not be freed from the stirrings and opposition of the corrupt nature which remains in us, it shall not have dominio over us. Believers are engaged in a conflict, in which they earnestl desire that grace may obtain full and speedy victory. And those wh desire thus to give themselves up to be led by the Holy Spirit, are no under the law as a covenant of works, nor exposed to its awful curse Their hatred of sin, and desires after holiness, show that they have part in the salvation of the gospel. The works of the flesh are man and manifest. And these sins will shut men out of heaven. Yet what numbers, calling themselves Christians, live in these, and say the hope for heaven! The fruits of the Spirit, or of the renewed nature which we are to do, are named. And as the apostle had chiefly name works of the flesh, not only hurtful to men themselves, but tending to make them so to one another, so here he chiefly notices the fruits of the Spirit, which tend to make Christians agreeable one to another, a well as to make them happy. The fruits of the Spirit plainly show, tha such are led by the Spirit. By describing the works of the flesh an fruits of the Spirit, we are told what to avoid and oppose, and what we are to cherish and cultivate; and this is the sincere care an endeavour of all real Christians. Sin does not now reign in their mortal bodies, so that they obey it, Ro 6:12, for they seek to destro it. Christ never will own those who yield themselves up to be the servants of sin. And it is not enough that we cease to do evil, but we must learn to do well. Our conversation will always be answerable to the principle which guides and governs us, Ro 8:5. We must se ourselves in earnest to mortify the deeds of the body, and to walk in newness of life. Not being desirous of vain-glory, or unduly wishin for the esteem and applause of men, not provoking or envying on another, but seeking to bring forth more abundantly those good fruits which are, through Jesus Christ, to the praise and glory of God __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    21.
    Murders. Omit from the text.

    Revelings (kwmoi). Comp. Rom. xiii. 13; 1 Pet. iv. 3. In both passages coupled with drunkenness as here. See on 1 Pet. iv. 3.

    I tell you before (prolegw). Better beforehand, or as Rev. I forewarn you. P o . Comp. 2 Cor. xiii. 2; 1 Thess. iii. 4.

    The kingdom of God. See on Luke vi. 20.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    5:21 {Forewarn} (prolegw) {--did forewarn} (proeipon). Paul repeats his warning given while with them. He did his duty qen. Gentile churches were peculiarly subject to these sins. But who is not in danger from them? {Practise} (prassontes). prassw is the verb for habitual practice (our very word, in fact), not poiew for occasional doing. The {habit} of these sins is proof that one is not in the Kingdom of God and will not inherit it.
