SHAMBLES  is often used today to describe a scene of wreckage but originally it
referred to a slaughterhouse.  In I Cor. 10: 25 we have `whatsoever is sold in the
shambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake'. "Meat market' would be an
up-to-date rendering.
SIMPLE.  Paul wrote in Rom. 16: 19 "I would have you wise unto that which is
good and simple concerning evil". He did not mean to be gullible or foolish, but free
from duplicity, innocent and so the Greek should now be rendered.
