    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Timothy 5:15

    For some are already turned aside - Some of these young widows, for he appears to be still treating of them, are turned aside to idolatry, to follow Satan instead of Christ. Slight deviations, in the first instance, from a right line, may lead at last to an infinite distance from Christ.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Timothy 5:15

    For some are already turned aside after Satan - That is, some young widows. The meaning is, that in the respects above mentioned 1 Timothy 5:13, they had followed the great Tempter, rather than the Lord Jesus. This is stated as a reason why they should not be admitted into the number of the widows who were to be maintained at the expense of the church, and to whom the care of the younger female members was to be committed.

    Wesley's Notes on 1 Timothy 5:15

    5:15 Some - Widows. Have turned aside after Satan - Who has drawn them from Christ.
