I add two translations here of the same section of the Commentary. The first from Papañcasudani Commentary to the
Translated by N.A. Jayawickrama Edited by Toshiichi Endo p.71 to 72
- Here now assutava puthujjano, ‘the uninstructed average person’ means: one untutored, on who has to be instructed (lit. led) on account
of his lack of knowledge of the Sacred Texts and of realization. He unto whom, on account of his lack of grasp, repeated questioning and investigation of the aggregates, elements, sense-spheres, causal relations, bases of mindfulness and so on, there is present neither learning in the Sacred Texts which prevents (concerted) thinking, nor realization on account of his not having attained what he should have attained through religious practice, he, on account of his lack of realization and knowledge of the Sacred Texts, has to be instructed is one untutored. And ––
He is a worlding (puthujjana) by such reasons as his begetting (janana) of many vulgar (puthu) things; or because he is included among the common men, this individual is one apart (from the worthy –– ariya).
For this individual is also a worldling for reasons such as his giving rise to various types of deﬁlements. For it has been said: ‘They are worldlings because they give rise to manifold deﬁlements. They are worldlings because they are the manifold folk who have not overcome the heresy of individuality. They are worldings because they are the manifold folk who look up (with expectation) at the faces of (outside) teachers. They are worldings because they are the manifold folk who have not risen from all (forms) of journeying. They are worldlings because in manifold ways they store up various karmic activity. They are worldlings because they are carried adrift in manifold ways by various Floods. They are worldlings because they are anguished with various forms of torment. They are worldlings because they are consumed in manifold ways by
various conﬂagrations. They are worldlings because in manifold ways they are attached to, greedy of, enslaved by, infatuated with, overwhelmed by, adhering to, clinging to and obstructed by the ﬁve bonds of sensual enjoyments. They are worldlings because in manifold ways they are hindered by,  enveloped with, obstructed by, covered by, concealed by and turned upside down by the ﬁve hindrances. They are worldlings because they are included among the manifold folk who have gone beyond the range of all reckoning in having turned their faces away from worthy teachings and act in accordance with those pursuing base teachings. He is a worldling because he is an individual apart and is reckoned as separate and is detached from the worthy ones who are endowed with virtues such as morality and learning.
46. Thus those (designated as) ‘untutored worldling’ who with these two terms:
One the blind worldling, the other the noble worldling ––
are the two worldlings declared by the Enlightened One, the kinsman of the sun ––
and so are the two worldlings declared. It should be known that among them the blind worldling is meant there.

THE DISCOURSE ON
THE ROOT OF EXISTENCE
Herein, he is uninstructed, needs to be taught, because he possesses neither learning (Agarna) nor spiritual achievement (adhi- gama). For he who possesses neither the learning running counter to the activity of conceiving because he has neglected to study, question, and discriminate (he aggregates, elements, sense bases, truths, law of conditionality, and foundations of mindfulness, etc., nor spiritual achievements because he has failed to achieve what should be achieved by practice, is said to be “uninstructed” on account of his deficiency in learning and spiritual achievement. He is one who needs to be taught.
He is called a worldling for such reasons As that he generates a multitude of things, Because he is immersed in the herd,
And because he is a person who is distinct.
The worldling is so-called because he generates a multitude of diverse defilements, etc. As it is said: “They generate a multitude
of defilements, hence they are worldlings. They have not destroyed the multiple forms of personality view, they look up to a multitude of teachers, they have not emerged from the multitude of destinations, they form multiple kamma-formations, they are swept away by a multitude of floods, afflicted by a multitude of afflictions, consumed by a multitude ol fevers—hence they are worldlings. They are lustful and greedy for the five multiple strands of sense pleasure; therein they are bound, in fatuated, addicted, attached, fastened, and confined—hence they are worldlings. They are obstructed, hindered, and enveloped by the five multiple hindrances; there they are enclosed, concealed, and incarcerated—hence they are worldlings’* (Nidd 1 249), Again, one who is included among the incalculable multitude of people who live according to an inferior doctrine and are averse to the doctrine of the ariyans is called a worldling. And a person distinct or remote from the ariyans endowed with such noble qualities as virtue, learning, etc., is called a worldling. Between the two types of worldlings mentioned in the following verse it is the blind worldling who is called the “uninstructed worldling.”
*The Enlightened One, the Kinsman of the Sun, *
*> Speaks of the worldling in a twofold way. *
*> One is the worldling blinded by darkness, *
> The other the worldling noble and good.
> “Who is without regard for the ariyans”
