And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.
And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be maligned.
Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.
And many will follow their immoral ways and lascivious doings; because of them the true Way will be maligned and defamed.
And many will follow their licentious conduct to its consummation, on account of whom the way of the truth will be reviled.
Many will follow their flagrant immorality and thereby bring discredit on the way of truth.
Many people will follow their immoral ways, and because of them the true way will be abused.
