Can you help me with this sentence from Killing Mockingbird? :)
Can any of you guys help me with understanding underlined sentence below? This sentence is from Killing Mockingbird. I expected this novel would be really hard to understand but I didn't expect to have problem at the very first page of the novel... :(
'He was unhappy lest he be tempted into doing what he knew was not for the glory of god, as the putting on of gold and costly apparel.'
In this sentence, can I replace the word 'as' in the sentence 'as the putting on of gold' into such as?
which makes this sentence into 'what he knew was not for the glory of god, such as putting on of gold and costly apparel'
