8But sin c  seizing an opportunity through the commandment, produced in me all kinds of covetousness. d  For apart from the law, sin lies dead.

Warning Against Worldliness

1What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions
Greek pleasures; also verse 3
are o  at war within you?
Greek in your members
2You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask. 3You ask and do not receive, because you ask q  wrongly, to spend it on your passions.

1 Peter 4:2-3

2 r  so as to live for s  the rest of the time in the flesh t  no longer for human passions but u  for the will of God. 3For the time that is past v  suffices w  for doing what the Gentiles want to do, living in sensuality, passions, drunkenness, orgies, drinking parties, and lawless idolatry.
