Be not children in mind
(mh paidia ginesqe tai presin
). "Cease becoming children in your intellects," as some of them evidently were. Cf. Hebrews 5:11-14
for a like complaint of intellectual dulness for being old babies. In malice be ye babes
(th kakiai nhpiazete
). Be men
). Keep on becoming adults in your minds. A noble and a needed command, pertinent today.
