Re: 1 Co 6:9 -- malakoi & arsenokoitai

Perseus probably has this, but I haven't seen it in a discussion among NT
people. Aristotle's NICOMACHAEN ETHICS discusses MALAKIA as a moral category,
meaning something like moral weakness, the inability to be resolute (Book 7).
Of course, ARSENOKOITES has a more specific field of reference.
