Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 13:13

_ _ Let us walk honestly — “becomingly,” “seemingly”

_ _ as in the day — “Men choose the night for their revels, but our night is past, for we are all the children of the light and of the day (1 Thessalonians 5:5): let us therefore only do what is fit to be exposed to the light of such a day.”

_ _ not in rioting and drunkenness — varied forms of intemperance; denoting revels in general, usually ending in intoxication.

_ _ not in chambering and wantonness — varied forms of impurity; the one pointing to definite acts, the other more general.

_ _ not in strife and envying — varied forms of that venomous feeling between man and man which reverses the law of love.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 13:11-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 13:13

Banqueting — Luxurious, elegant feasts.
