3:5 Mortify. “Mortify” means “put to death.” “They that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts” (Galatians 5:24).

3:5 concupiscence. “Concupiscence” (see I Thessalonians 4:5; Romans 7:8) means “desire.”

3:5 idolatry. In God’s sight, covetousness is worship of the god Mammon, and “ye cannot serve God and mammon” (Matthew 6:24).
