"Ignorance" arises of Old French "ignorance," "lack of wisdom or knowledge." Wisdom = wise dominion. Socrates was an initiate of the Eleusinian Mysteries https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eleusinian_Mysteries and as such under-stood (Plato's coined word hypo-thesis) that wise dominion is of God (or of the gods or exalted beings), Good.
This is true wisdom: the meekness of an Israel, who, as "supplanter" or thief of God's blessing, confesses "God is in this place (i.e., Omnipresent, whether in Rebekah's womb or in a far country) and I knew it not," after a blessed under-standing of the One Mind's Ideas per Angelic messengers of same transcendent Light, thus carrying forward the blessing of Abra (father) ham (nations)--"a star shall come forth from Jacob," in other words.
Thus, for Socrates, a most high initiate of the Mysteries, it was a given (in his awareness) that only a lack of wisdom, and a concomitant lack of knowing of the sacred energy patterns (which latter are as applied wisdom, or knowledge), obtained--a kind of Kantian categorical good-will reasoning. Thus, Socrates' statement is valid, but unreasonable, inasmuch as a person has the ability to turn down or turn away from the Good; this knowingly veiling energy is more of that situation of which Christ Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, FOR they know not what they do," with a possible inference that those who knowingly transgress Truth, Life, and Love are of deified evil, or deviling; of such, Christ Jesus commanded them to hold their peace, or keep silent ("And Jesus rebuked him, saying, 'Hold your peace, and come out of him.'" Mark 1:25. It is worth noting that the verb translated in many reader-gentle versions as "hold your peace" is literally "be gagged, be stilled," and is the same verb used when Jesus commanded the elements to be still (Mark 4:39)). Thus the truth of energy-veiling, eviling, in the first "degree" is that of elemental misqualification of Energy, "Light;" whereas the second "degree" of energy-veiling is "deified" energy-veiling, or "deviling." This latter kind of egoism is ignorance raised to wicked or deliberate ignorance. This is the level of malfeasance at which Socrates' valid position (i.e., re first degree energy-veiling as "simple ignorance") becomes unreasonable...an example of a second-degree framing (Christ Jesus' awareness, and/or other scriptural warnings against divination, etc., a la King Saul's or the Israelite's "golden calfing," Saint James' "earthly, unspiritual, demonic 'wisdom not from the One;' cf James 3:13-17).
Thus "wrestling with adversary" may be interpreted as King David wrestling with the goliath which must be put off and the new Israel or Paul put on, letting that Archangelic Michael blessing of Jacob's star of redemption shine in and of transfigured Self. A further cautionary re the distinction between the Socratic and Abrahamic "degrees of awareness of Good and energy-veiling": insofar as one is in the Garden, the Energy-tie is of Oneness, in which the talents are increased per simply accepting (in-taking) additional Light, or "fruit;" the Light becomes darkness (misqualified Light) if the soul-field elects to dis-fellowship with the One, and place him or her self at and as the center of Energy, which is God, Good; and regeneration (restoration a la parable of the prodigal) of pure Light Oneness is a theme of Scriptural wisdom (God as Light, al Nur). It is worth noting that there is a direct Oneness, such as Abraham, Friend of God, and there are movings of energies out from the One (out of the Energy Garden) and, per "world as teacher," return to the One, a la the Prodigal. This redemption of "lost sheep" or "heaven rejoices more over one such who re-thinks than over 90 and 9 who kept Oneness as they learned to master Energy talents" is the purity of Hope. (It is well to note that, with reference to your self-description, that "I" has a spectrum or continuum of reference, including I as I Am.
