And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.
and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.
And by unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing (going to perdition) because they did not welcome the Truth but refused to love it that they might be saved.
in the sphere of every kind of wicked deception geared to [the gullibility of] those who are perishing, [this gullibility being] caused by the fact that they did not accept the love of the truth to the end that they might be saved.
To those doomed to perish he will come with evil’s undiluted power to deceive, for they have refused to love the truth which could have saved them.
and with a completely wicked deception for men who are on their way to destruction, because they refused to love the truth so as to be saved.
