Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 6:11

_ _ ye are washed — The Greek middle voice expresses, “Ye have had yourselves washed.” This washing implies the admission to the benefits of Christ’s salvation generally; of which the parts are; (1) Sanctification, or the setting apart from the world, and adoption into the Church: so “sanctified” is used 1 Corinthians 7:14; John 17:19. Compare 1 Peter 1:2, where it rather seems to mean the setting apart of one as consecrated by the Spirit in the eternal purpose God. (2) Justification from condemnation through the righteousness of God in Christ by faith (Romans 1:17). So Paraeus. The order of sanctification before justification shows that it must be so taken, and not in the sense of progressive sanctification. “Washed” precedes both, and so must refer to the Christian’s outward new birth of water, the sign of the inward setting apart to the Lord by the inspiration of the Spirit as the seed of new life (John 3:5; Ephesians 5:26; Titus 3:5; Hebrews 10:22). Paul (compare the Church of England Baptismal Service), in charity, and faith in the ideal of the Church, presumes that baptism realizes its original design, and that those outwardly baptized inwardly enter into vital communion with Christ (Galatians 3:27). He presents the grand ideal which those alone realized in whom the inward and the outward baptism coalesced. At the same time he recognizes the fact that this in many cases does not hold good (1 Corinthians 6:8-10), leaving it to God to decide who are the really “washed,” while he only decides on broad general principles.

_ _ in the name of ... Jesus, and by the Spirit — rather, “in the Spirit,” that is, by His in-dwelling. Both clauses belong to the three — “washed, sanctified, justified.”

_ _ our God — The “our” reminds the that amidst all his reproofs God is still the common God of himself and them.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 6:9-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 6:11

And such were some of you: but ye are washed — From those gross abominations; nay, and ye are inwardly sanctified; not before, but in consequence of, your being justified in the name — That is, by the merits, of the Lord Jesus, through which your sins are forgiven. And by the Spirit of our God — By whom ye are thus washed and sanctified.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 6:11

And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the (f) name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

(f) In Jesus.
