“That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;”
King James Version (KJV)
2:15 That ye may be blameless - Before men. And simple - Before God, aiming at him alone. As the sons of God - The God of love; acting up to your high character. Unrebukable in the midst of a crooked - Guileful, serpentine, and perverse generation - Such as the bulk of mankind always were. Crooked - By a corrupt nature, and yet more perverse by custom and practice.
Php 2:15 The sons of God. Those of so high estate ought to be harmless, blameless, and in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, a wicked world, they should shine as lights by their pure and holy lives.
