New Defender's Study Bible Notes
13:8 Owe no man any thing. The Christian should pay his debts on time. This does not preclude his borrowing money or using charge accounts, as long as he fulfills the terms of the loan on time. Note the teaching of Jesus, implying His approval of paying interest (Luke 19:23; Matthew 25:27). On the importance of paying one’s debts, note also Matthew 5:25-26.
