Spiritual Natural 1 Cor. 2:14-16 2 Cor. 13:5; there is natural of humankind and there is Christian wisdom which is the natural spiritual wisdom and nature of God. A free gift by Christ through the Holy Ghost: “those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saint”. Spiritual naked; nakedness: garment and appears clothed or under robe worn next the skin Ge. 2:25; Job 1:21; Mk. 14:52; Heb. 4:13
Spiritual naughtiness KJV used naughtiness to mean viciousness or wickedness 1 Sam. 17:28; Prov. 11:6; Jas. 1:21. In modern English naughtiness indicates disobedience, misbehavior, or mischievousness. Modern translations thus replace naughtiness with terms such as evil, greed, or wickedness to reflect the seriousness of the sin.
Spiritual nurture KJV translation Eph. 6:4 of the Greek disciple, instruction. The noun occurs elsewhere in the Pauline corpus but once 2 Tim. 3:16 which relates that all Scripture is profitable for “instruction in righteousness.” To rear children “in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” is to discipline and correct them as the Lord would.
