16 For all that is in the world, sensual lust,[a] enticement for the eyes, and a pretentious life, is not from the Father but is from the world.

Footnotes:

  1. 2:16 Sensual lust: literally, “the lust of the flesh,” inordinate desire for physical gratification. Enticement for the eyes: literally, “the lust of the eyes,” avarice or covetousness; the eyes are regarded as the windows of the soul. Pretentious life: literally, “pride of life,” arrogance or ostentation in one’s earthly style of life that reflects a willful independence from God and others.
