Originally meant any longing desire, however innocent, Deuteronomy 12:15 14:26 . But, in tacit acknowledgment of the depravity of man's passions, general usage soon attached the idea of guilt to the word; and now it usually denotes carnal, lascivious desire. In Galatians 5:17 , we see that the aspirations of the heart renewed by the Holy Spirit, oppose and will subdue the native evil desires, 1 Corinthians 15:57 ; but in the unrenewed heart these reign uncontrolled, lead to greater and greater outwards sin, and secure eternal death, James 1:14,15 .
