TO EXCLUDE FROM CONVERSATION THE FAINTEST TOUCH OF WHAT IS UNBECOMING

EPHESIANS 5:12 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret.

ELLICOTT'S COMMENTARY Sin may be plainly indicated, and perhaps most effectually branded, without polluting the tongue by describing its actual developments. The need of St. Paul’s caution is only too obvious when we read some satires and denunciations against sin, or some manuals of self-examination.

PULPIT COMMENTARY For the things that are done by them in secret it is a shame even to speak of. The groves of Ephesus were notorious for the shamefulness of lust. To speak of such deeds was not only wrong, but shameful; so extreme is the delicacy which Christianity fosters. Too much pains cannot be taken, by parents, masters of schools, and others, to foster this delicacy among the young - to exclude from conversation the faintest touch of what is unbecoming.
