Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am being tempted by God," for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one.
But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.
Then desire x when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and y sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.

They conceive trouble and give birth to evil, and their womb prepares deceit.
Behold, the wicked man conceives evil and is pregnant with mischief and gives birth to lies.
No one enters suit justly; no one goes to law honestly; they rely on empty pleas, they speak lies, they conceive mischief and give birth to iniquity.
Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned -
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
