But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

5:6 dead while she liveth. The immediate reference is to a young widow who, if supported by the church instead of getting married or of getting a job to support herself, has too much time on her hands and becomes either wanton or a busybody. The principle, however, would apply to anyone who “liveth in pleasure.” Such a person is spiritually dead.
