    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:21

    ¿Qu fruto, pues, teníais de aquellas cosas de las cuales ahora os avergonzis? Porque el fin de ellas es muerte.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 6:21

    Verse 21. What
    fruit had ye then in those things] God designs that every man shall reap benefit by his service. What benefit have ye derived from the service of sin? Whereof ye are now ashamed?] Ye blush to remember your former life.

    It was scandalous to yourselves, injurious to others, and highly provoking to God.

    The end of those things is death.] Whatever sin may promise of pleasure or advantage, the end to which it necessarily tends is the destruction of body and soul.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 21. What fruit had ye then in those things ? etc..] That is, what profit, pleasure, satisfaction, or comfort, had ye in the commission of sin? Sin yields no real profit to the servants of it. If a man, by sinful practices, could amass together the riches of the Indies, or gain the whole world, yet if his soul is lost thereby, what advantage would it be to him? he would be infinitely the loser by it; nor would all his wealth and riches profit him in the day of God's wrath and righteous judgment: nor is there any true pleasure in sin; persons may imagine within themselves they enjoy a real pleasure whilst they are serving divers lusts; but this is but imaginary, it is not real; and this imaginary pleasure is but for a season; it issues in bitterness and death: nor is there any satisfaction in it; when men have endeavoured to gratify their carnal lusts and sensual appetites in every way that can be devised, they still remain as they were; nor can they reflect with real satisfaction, and without some slinging remorse, upon the methods they have pursued to gain it: nor is there any true honour in sin, nothing but what is scandalous and disgraceful to human nature; shame, sooner or later, is the fruit of sin: whereof ye are now ashamed ; some men may be indeed for the present so hardened as not to blush and be ashamed at the commission of the vilest sins; such are they who have no sense of sin, have no fear of God, or regard to men; and so sin openly, and without any guise, glory in it, and make their boast of it: but when persons are wrought upon by the Spirit of God, they are ashamed of sin; which might be exemplified in the case of Adam and Eve, of Ephraim, of the prodigal son, and of the poor publican; the reason is, because light is struck into their hearts; and this makes manifest the odious and detestable nature of sin; sin is hereby seen in its own proper colours, as exceeding sinful, loathsome, and abominable: besides, the grace and goodness of God are discovered in the forgiveness of it; and the glory of God's purity and holiness, and the beauty and loveliness of Christ, are discerned by such persons; all which have a tendency to make them ashamed of sin, out of love with it, and to abhor it: and a good thing it is to be brought to be ashamed of sin here; for such who are not ashamed of it here, shall be brought to everlasting shame and confusion hereafter. Nay, this is not all; not only shame will be the fruit of sin, but it will also issue in death: for the, end of those things is death : the profit, the reward, and wages of them is death: sin not only brings a spiritual or moral death on persons, on all the powers and faculties of their souls, and is followed with a corporeal death; but if grace prevent not, it will end in an eternal one; for however right and good the ways of sin may seem to the carnal mind, the end thereof are the ways of death (( Proverbs 14:12 16:25)).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 21-23 - The
    pleasure and profit of sin do not deserve to be called fruit Sinners are but ploughing iniquity, sowing vanity, and reaping the same. Shame came into the world with sin, and is still the certai effect of it. The end of sin is death. Though the way may seem pleasan and inviting, yet it will be bitterness in the latter end. From thi condemnation the believer is set at liberty, when made free from sin If the fruit is unto holiness, if there is an active principle of tru and growing grace, the end will be everlasting life; a very happy end Though the way is up-hill, though it is narrow, thorny, and beset, ye everlasting life at the end of it is sure. The gift of God is eterna life. And this gift is through Jesus Christ our Lord. Christ purchase it, prepared it, prepares us for it, preserves us to it; he is the All in all in our salvation __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    21.
    Fruit. See on i. 13.

    Had ye (eicete). Imperfect tense, denoting continuance. What fruit were ye having during your service of sin?

    In the things whereof (ef oiv). Some change the punctuation, and read "What fruit had ye at that time? Things whereof ye are now ashamed." But the majority of the best texts reject this, and besides, the question is of having fruit, not of the quality of the fruit.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:21 {What fruit qen had ye at that time?} (tina oun karpon eicete tote?). Imperfect active, used to have. A pertinent question. Ashes in their hands now. They are ashamed now of the memory of them. The end of them is death.
