Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ephesians 5:6

_ _ vain — empty, unreal words, namely, palliations of “uncleanness,” Ephesians 5:3, Ephesians 5:4; Isaiah 5:20 (that it is natural to indulge in love), “covetousness” (that it is useful to society that men should pursue gain), and “jesting” (that it is witty and clever, and that God will not so severely punish for such things).

_ _ because of these thingsuncleanness, covetousness, etc. (Ephesians 5:3-5).

_ _ cometh — present, not merely “shall come.” Is as sure as if already come.

_ _ children — rather, “sons of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:2, Ephesians 2:3). The children of unbelief in doctrine (Deuteronomy 32:20) are “children of disobedience” in practice, and these again are “children of wrath.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ephesians 5:3-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ephesians 5:6

Because of these things — As innocent as the heathens esteem them, and as those dealers in vain words would persuade you to think them.
