Ephesians 5:11-12

Context
5:11 Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but rather 1  expose them. 2  5:12 For the things they do 3  in secret are shameful even to mention.

1 tn The Greek conjunction καὶ (kai) seems to be functioning here ascensively, (i.e., “even”), but is difficult to render in this context using good English. It may read something like: “but rather even expose them!”

2 tn Grk “rather even expose.”

3 tn The participle τὰγινόμενα (taginomena) usually refers to “things happening” or “things which are,” but with the following genitive phrase ὑπ᾿ αὐτῶν (Jupautwn), which indicates agency, the idea seems to be “things being done.” This passive construction was translated as an active one to simplify the English style.
