This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 6:20. Ἠγοράσθητε, ye are bought) You are entirely in the power of another. To sell is used for to alienate; to buy for to claim for one’s self, and here too with propriety; for the mention of a price is added.-τιμῆς, with a price) This word has thus much greater force, than if an epithet were added. So also 1Co 7:23.-δοξάσατε, glorify) An Epiphonema [an exclamation subjoined to a weighty argument.-Appen.] They are in error, who think that God should be only internally, or only externally worshipped.-ἐν τῷ σώματι ὑμῶν,[55] in your body) Rom 12:1; Php 1:20.

[55] The words which follow to the end of this clause, are declared by the margin of both Ed. as a reading not genuine; wherefore, also, in the German Vers., they are only within a parenthesis. Not. Crit. on this passage agrees to it: ὑμῶν, περὶ) a sure reading; the question here is about the use and abuse of the body.-E. B.

Rec. Text adds καὶ ἐν τῷ πνεύματι ὑμῶν ἅτινα ἐστὶν τοῦ Θεοῦ. Both Syr. Vers. alone of the oldest authorities support this reading. But ABC corrected later, D corr. lat., G Vulg. fg Iren. Cypr. Lucif. Memph. omit the words.-ED.
