This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1903 edition. Excerpt: enforced by five rapid argumentative questions, which show how incongruous such yoking would be. See Appendix D. what fellowship Here there is perhaps not much change of meaning between 'fellowship' and 'communion'; but the two words have a difference. The word which is rendered 'fellowship, ' and which occurs nowhere else in the N.T., implies a sharing of something between the 'fellows' (Heb. i. 9; Lk. v. 7); 'communion' does not imply this, but rather that what is common to all is enjoyed by each in its totality, e.g. a beautiful day or view. See T. S. Evans on 1 Cor. x. 16 in the Speaker's Commentary. Here S. Paul is evidently seeking a change of word for each question. His command of Greek is thus illustrated.,5 and what communion hath light with darkness? and what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that,6 believeth with an infidel? and what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, hath righteousness with unrighteousness Here, as in v. 8, the A.V. makes a verbal antithesis which is not in the Greek: rather, have righteousness and iniquity (Mt. vii. 23, xiii. 41; Rom. iv. 7, vi. 19) or lawlessness (2 Thes. ii. 7; 1 Jn iii. 4), which is the characteristic of heathen life (Rom. vi. 19). hath light with darkness' Literally, is there for light in reference to darkness. S. Paul not only varies the word for the general idea of agreement or intercourse; he also varies the construction in four out of the five questions. Note also the interchange of 'and' and 'or' between the questions. For 'light' and 'darkness' in the moral sense comp. Rom. xiii. 12; Eph. v. 8, 1 1; Col. i. 12. 15. Here the construction is, What' concord is there more
