To finish contrasting "lawlessness" with "iniquity" (iniquitousness) it comes back to Ezekiel 36:26-27
26. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
27. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

Before we're Born-Again, we are born into this world with the self-willed heart which Adam & Eve chose in the garden of Eden over living their lives In Accord With God.

Interesting to read John 3:1-20ish because it all relates to Nicodemus, a pharisee, and The Witness Jesus Gave him when Nic sought HIM out.

Jesus Tells Nic three times about being Born-Again. The third time, HE Says "Marvel not that I Say unto you, Ye MUST Be Born-Again!" John 3:7.... Nic still can't grasp the concept. Jesus Asks Nic, "Art thou a Master of Israel and yet knowest not of these things?"

Jesus is surprised Nic don't Know about Ezekiel 36:26-27 as God's Prophet Brought Word of what Father Wanted for the Hebrews, but of course, Father was rejected; or every Hebrew would have understoon Born-Again especially a pharisee like Nic.

What Jesus Witnesses to the Christians of Matt 7:22 who had Done Miracles, Cast-Out demons and Prophesied In HIS Name is "I KNOW YOU NOT" Because You're NOT Born-Again!

Father-God's Witness delivered By Ezekiel is that HE Will Give Us A New Heart Of HIS Flesh when we are Born-Again.

It is This New Heart Of HIS Flesh that transforms us - Delivers Us from being self-willed, iniquitous aka "workers of iniquity" (matt 7:23).

Father's Witness in verse 27 is that He Will Put HIS Spirit Within Us and Cause Us to Keep MY Statutes and Judgments. This is MORE than simply enabling us to no longer be "lawless" or practitioners of lawlessness...

Father's Witness in verse 27 is that HE Will Enable Us to KNOW and DO HIS Will and live our lives without sinning.

Thus, there is great difference between Being Delivered from our carnal "stony heart", (being Delivered from our iniquity) and being Delivered from "lawlessness".

Takes Being Born-Again, per Ezekiel 36:26-27 to Understand the difference.

So many "new versions" of The Bible. All written primarily to generate money and written by men/women who are NOT Themselves Ezekiel 36:26-27 Born-Agains. Not KNOWING God The Father, they look for synonyms to avoid copyright issues or stand-up to their effort to give The Bible "a new, fresh verbage".

This IS The Problem of Laodicea...
So many, a huge majority in-fact, of those who teach/preach/minister don't Know The Born-Again Life...

The Born-Again doesn't "need" The Bible...
Having Relationship With God The Father, and The Indwelling of God The Holy Spirit, as St. John Witnesses in 1st Epistle 2:20: "But you (Born-Agains) Have An Unction From The Holy One and KNOW All Things!"

It is The InDwelling of God The Holy Spirit that Gives Us Witness and Understanding of God's Word no matter which version we might read/consult...

Yet, to those not yet Born-Again, there will be confusion.
God Clears Up All Confusion when we Give HIM Our All and Make Our Surrender!

Christ Made The Way Unto The Father...
Up to us to walk it and Made Our Surrender.
