      Dear Friend(s),
      The text you are looking at is in respect of <sin>. I suspect that the text has passed through Latin, wherein <sin> and <debt> are conveyed by the same word. If you consider <sin> as <debt>, then <release> or <set-free> make good sense. If on the other hand, you think of <sin> as <defilement>, then <cleansing> or <bathing> makes sense. If now you go back to your text, you can see what is meant, so you can make the correct INTERPRETATION.


      Best regards,
      Dave Smith.
