English term or phrase:newness
Have you forgotten the deaths that many die? How many, when they draw near death, seem entirely strangers to God. Not only are they sadly ignorant of His Gospel, but sadly wanting in the power of speaking to Him. There is a terrible awkwardness, and shyness, and ***newness***, and rawness, in their endeavors to approach Him. They seem to be taking up a fresh thing. They appear as if they want an introduction to God, and as if they have never talked with Him before.
Explanation: Sé que el resto de los términos de la enumeración son negativos y éste suena más bien positivo, pero después de leer todo el párrafo creo que es efectivamente ése el sentido. Además, no se me ocurre otra cosa ; )
Espero que sirva!
