Wisdom 4:12
Envying what is worthless blinds people to what is good, and the whirlwind of desire undermines an innocent mind.
For the bewitching of vanity obscureth good things, and the wandering of concupiscence overturneth the innocent mind.
We all know that people can be so fascinated by evil that they cannot recognize what is good even when they are looking right at it. Innocent people can be so corrupted with desire that they can think of nothing but what they want.)
For the witchery of paltry things obscures what is right and the whirl of desire transforms the innocent mind.
For the fascination of wickedness obscures what is good, and roving desire perverts the innocent mind.
For the fascination of wickedness obscures what is good, and roving desire perverts the innocent mind.
For the fascination of wickedness obscures what is good, and roving desire perverts the innocent mind.
For the fascination of wickedness obscures what is good, and roving desire perverts the innocent mind.
For the fascination of wickedness obscures what is good, and roving desire perverts the innocent mind.
For the fascination of wickedness obscures what is good, and roving desire perverts the innocent mind.
For why deceiving of trifling maketh dark good things, and the unstableness of covetousness turneth over [or overturneth] the wit without malice.
