In 1 Peter 2:1 when it talks about ''laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings'' the Greek word there for ''laying aside'' is ''apotithemi'' which can mean ''to make a way'' as in finding a way when there seems to not be one. And it also can mean ''to make out of'', to create from the hypocrisies, guile, envies, evil speakings and so forth. That is, to make good out of them or for good out of them. Also to ''make for one's use'', or for one's advantage in the truth - the lifestyle, defense or culmination thereof; or to ''lay aside for a later time'', which can represent wisdom of prevention or invention or discovery. And it can also mean to ''lay on'' or ''combine''. We can learn from these things and from people's hypocrisies and lies to better ourselves! And it also can mean to ''establish'' or to ''fit, fix or place in'' - to relativize those things into truth or for truth. - Joshua Aaron Guillory -Joshua Aaron Guillory
