James 1:14

When he is drawn away by his own lust (upo th idia epiqumia exelkomeno). Epiqumia is old word for craving (from epiqumew, to have a desire for) either good ( Philippians 1:23 ) or evil ( Romans 7:7 ) as here. Like a fish drawn out from his retreat. Enticed (deleazomeno). Present passive participle of deleazw, old verb from delear (bait), to catch fish by bait or to hunt with snares and Philo has up hdonh deleazetai (is enticed by pleasure). In N.T. only here and 2 Peter 2:14 2 Peter 2:18 . Allured by definite bait.
