die to sin

The Greek that is translated as “die to sin” in English is translated in Kala Lagaw Ya as “become blind to sin.” In Kala Lagaw Ya, extended meanings of “die” include being “intoxicated” or “lax” and “irresponsible” which made this expression difficult to understand if translated with that concept.
