Wesley's Notes for 1 Thessalonians 4:5
4:5 Not in passionate desire - Which had no place in man when in a state of innocence. Who know not God - And so may naturally seek happiness in a creature. What seemingly accidental words slide in; and yet how fine, and how vastly important!
People's Bible Notes for 1 Thessalonians 4:5
1Th 4:5 Even as the Gentiles which know not God. Even the greatest of heathen moralists, Socrates, instructed a harlot how she should conduct her shameful business. The heathen moralists condemned unchastity only in the case of a childbearing wife, as it would wrong her husband not to know the paternity of her children.
