“But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;”
King James Version (KJV)
5:3 But let not any impure love be even named or heard of among you - Keep at the utmost distance from it, as becometh saints.
Eph 5:3 But. Sundry sins are now forbidden which were utterly opposed to the duties just commended. Fornication. This was hardly accounted a sin among the Gentiles. Uncleanness. Every kind of impurity. Covetousness. This sin is emphasized. The Greek term "pleonexia" means "greediness for more". It implies an insatiable desire for wealth and for the things which gratify appetite. It is therefore a greed which leads to many sins. Let it not be once named among you. Such sins must be banished not only in deed, but in word.
