I think Braulio Barillas was on target. The United Bible Societies
Diccionario Conciso Griego-Español del Nuevo Testamento, prepared by Elsa
Tamez and Irene de Foulkes of Costa Rica lists "maldad, desobediencia,
pecado". If you do not have this dictionary, I suggest that you get it.
They have done a great job in translating all the NT vocabulary in what they
call "español moderno" . . . "con palabras del lenguaje diario."
"Descontrol" seems to me to have the connotation of lack of control or
discipline. Others on the list may confirm this, that ANOMIA is stronger in
its force than simply a lack of control or discipline.

> Thanks in advance to any who wish to help me with this.
