Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament

1 Thessalonians 4:12

That ye may walk honestly (ina peripathte eusxhmonwv).
Present subjunctive (linear action). Old adverb from eusxhmwn (eu, sxhma, Latin habitus, graceful figure), becomingly, decently. In N.T. only here and Romans 13:13. This idea includes honest financial transactions, but a good deal more. People outside the churches have a right to watch the conduct of professing Christians in business, domestic life, social life, politics.
