21 For although they knew God, they did not honour him as God or give thanks to him, but they (A)became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
18 knowing that you (A)were ransomed from (B)the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold,
18 Let no one (A)disqualify you, (B)insisting on asceticism and worship of angels, (C)going on in detail about visions,[a] (D)puffed up without reason by (E)his sensuous mind,
18 For, (A)speaking loud boasts of folly, they entice by sensual passions of the flesh those who are barely (B)escaping from those who live in error.
