New Defender's Study Bible Notes
7:23 I never knew you. These false prophets are not people who once were saved and then became apostates. Christ never knew them!
7:23 work iniquity. The word “iniquity” here means “lawlessness.” Thus false prophets reject God’s law—i.e., His Word—in favor of their own philosophy or complex of experiences, and thus cannot do His will (Matthew 7:21, 26).
