is 'to lop or prune, as trees and wings', 'to curb', 'check', 'restrain';

for 'government' is 'dominion'; the same word is also translated 'Lord'
in the New Testament, but means here, they resent
what they regard as encroaching
towards their self-centered concerns, their 'lord' and regard ideas
toward helping others as threats to self-governance, where any impressions
on their minds outside of selfish purposes are disregarded; they are characterized
by being dogmatically
impatient of contradiction).

appeal to selfishness to suck you into the dark side), through much

escaped from them who live in error.
Notes: The word 'allure' is the same original word used as 'beguiling'
in verse 14 above and as 'enticed' in James
1:14. It does not elsewhere occur in the New Testament. It means that
they make use of deceitful arts to allure, ensnare, or beguile others.
The means which it is here said they employed, were the lusts of the flesh,
that is, they promised unlimited indulgence to the carnal appetites or
taught such doctrines that their followers would feel themselves free to
give unrestrained liberty to such propensities. This has been quite a common
method in the world, of inducing men to embrace false doctrines. See how
these things have affected you through the control of you by others
who are incredibly evil.

liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption. For of whom.(original
