171Sothis I say, and affirmtogether with the Lord, 2that you walknolongerjust as the Gentilesalsowalk, in the 3futility of their mind,
18being4darkened in their understanding, a5excluded from the life of Godbecause of the 6ignorance that is in them, because of the 7hardness of their heart;
and they, having 8becomecallous, 9have giventhemselvesover to 10sensualitybfor the practice of everykind of impurity with greediness.
But you did not 11learncChrist in thisway,
21ifindeed you 12have heard Him and have 13been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus,
that, in reference to your formermanner of life, you 14layaside the 15olddself, which is being corrupted in accordance with the 16lusts of deceit,
and that you be 17renewed in the spirit of your mind,
and 18put on the 19neweself, which f20in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.
