Therefore, since Christ has suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same purpose, because the one who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,
so as to live the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for human lusts, but for the will of God.
For the time already past is sufficient for you
to have carried out the desire of the Gentiles, having pursued a course of indecent behavior, lusts, drunkenness, carousing, drinking parties, and wanton idolatries.
this, they are surprised that you do not run with them
in the same excesses of debauchery, and they slander you;
but they will give an account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.
