LASCIVIOUSNESS . The Greek word so translated in Mark 7:22 etc. is translated ‘ wantonness ’ in Romans 13:13 . This is the translation in the VSS [Note: SS Versions.] before AV [Note: Authorized Version.] in nearly all the passages where AV [Note: Authorized Version.] has ‘lasciviousness.’ The idea of the Gr. word is shameless conduct of any kind.
