Because so is the will of God, that by well-doing ye put to silence the ignorance of senseless menn;

JND Translation Notes

+
n
"Senseless men" has the article here, as showing that it is not "some men who are foolish," but that men (not Christians) are so, are known in that character. It is the character of all who are pointed out by the name of "men." It is somewhat wider than "Gentiles," ver. 12.

WK Translation Notes

1
senseless: here it may not be uninstructive to note the weak and unsound attempt of the same dignitary [Dean Alford] to account for τῶν ἀφρ. ἀνθρ. in 15, as limited to such as reviled Christ as evil doers. For the apostle really speaks of men as a whole, and declares the race as such senseless. The phrase imports nothing less. (Bible Treasury 14:79)
