I was doing a study of the attributes of love, and I ran into this verse:

Rom 12:9 hH AGAPH ANUPOKRITOS

I interpreted this as meaning "love is genuine" (or perhaps "love does not
play-act", which changes the adjective into a verb, but seems to express
the same thought). But when I turned to five translations (NRSV, REB, NAB,
NJB, NASB), *none* of them interpreted it this way. They all said something
like "*let* love be sincere".

Why? What am I missing?
