Matthew 5:22 But I say unto you [εγω δε λεγω υμιν]
Jesus thus assumes a tone of superiority over the Mosaic regulations and proves it in each of the six examples. He goes further than the Law into the very heart. [source]
Matthew 16:18 And I also say unto thee [καγω δε σοι λεγω]
“The emphasis is not on ‹Thou art Peter‘ over against ‹Thou art the Christ,‘ but on Καγω — Kagō ‹The Father hath revealed to thee one truth, and I also tell you another” (McNeile). Jesus calls Peter here by the name that he had said he would have (John 1:42). Peter Then it was prophecy, now it is fact. In Matthew 16:17 Jesus addresses him as “Simon Bar-Jonah,” his full patronymic (Aramaic) name. But Jesus has a purpose now in using his nickname “Peter” which he had himself given him. Jesus makes a remarkable play on Peter‘s name, a pun in fact, that has caused volumes of controversy and endless theological strife. [source]
Luke 6:27 But I say unto you that hear [Αλλα υμιν λεγω τοις ακουουσιν]
There is a contrast in this use of αλλα — alla like that in Matthew 5:44. This is the only one of the many examples given by Matthew 5 of the sharp antithesis between what the rabbis taught and what Jesus said. Perhaps that contrast is referred to by Luke. If necessary, αλλα — alla could be coordinating or paratactic conjunction as in 2 Corinthians 7:11 rather than adversative as apparently here. See notes on Matthew 5:43. Love of enemies is in the O.T., but Jesus ennobles the word, αγαπαω — agapaō and uses it of love for one‘s enemies. [source]
John 8:45 Because I speak the truth [εγω δε οτι την αλητειαν λεγω]
Proleptic emphatic position of εγω — egō “Truth is uncongenial to them” (Bernard). See John 3:19 for their picture. [source]
John 16:26 I say not [ου λεγω]
“I speak not.” Christ did pray for the disciples before his death (John 14:16; John 17:9, John 17:15, John 17:24) and he prays also for sinners (Luke 23:34; 1 John 2:1). Here it is the special love of God for disciples of Jesus (John 14:21, John 14:23; John 17:23; 1 John 4:19). Note αιτεω — aiteō and ερωταω — erōtaō used in practically the same sense as in John 16:23. [source]
Romans 6:19 I speak after the manner of men [αντρωπινον λεγω]
“I speak a human word.” He begs pardon for using “slaving” in connection with righteousness. But it is a good word, especially for our times when self-assertiveness and personal liberty bulk so large in modern speech. See note on Romans 3:5; Galatians 3:15 where he uses κατα αντρωπον — kata anthrōpon [source]
Romans 11:1 I say then [λεγω ουν]
As in Romans 11:11. Ουν — Oun looks back to 9:16-33 and Romans 10:19-21. [source]
1 Corinthians 6:5 I say this to move you to shame [προς εντροπην υμιν λεγω]
Old word εντροπη — entropē from εντρεπω — entrepō to turn in (1 Corinthians 4:14 which see). In N.T. only here and 1 Corinthians 15:34. [source]
1 Corinthians 1:12 Now this I mean [λεγω δε τουτο]
Explanatory use of λεγω — legō Each has his party leader. Απολλω — Apollō is genitive of Απολλως — Apollōs (Acts 18:24), probably abbreviation of Απολλωνιυς — Apollōnius as seen in Codex Bezae for Acts 18:24. See note on Acts 18:24 for discussion of this “eloquent Alexandrian” (Ellicott), whose philosophical and oratorical preaching was in contrast “with the studied plainness” of Paul (1 Corinthians 2:1; 2 Corinthians 10:10). People naturally have different tastes about styles of preaching and that is well, but Apollos refused to be a party to this strife and soon returned to Ephesus and refused to go back to Corinth (1 Corinthians 16:12). Χηπα — Cēphā is the genitive of Χηπας — Cēphās the Aramaic name given Simon by Jesus (John 1:42), Πετρος — Petros in Greek. Except in Galatians 2:7, Galatians 2:8 Paul calls him Cephas. He had already taken his stand with Paul in the Jerusalem Conference (Acts 15:7-11; Galatians 2:7-10). Paul had to rebuke him at Antioch for his timidity because of the Judaizers (Galatians 2:11-14), but, in spite of Baur‘s theory, there is no evidence of a schism in doctrine between Paul and Peter. If 2 Peter 3:15. be accepted as genuine, as I do, there is proof of cordial relations between them and 1 Corinthians 9:5 points in the same direction. But there is no evidence that Peter himself visited Corinth. Judaizers came and pitted Peter against Paul to the Corinthian Church on the basis of Paul‘s rebuke of Peter in Antioch. These Judaizers made bitter personal attacks on Paul in return for their defeat at the Jerusalem Conference. So a third faction was formed by the use of Peter‘s name as the really orthodox wing of the church, the gospel of the circumcision. [source]
1 Corinthians 7:12 But to the rest say I, not the Lord [τοις δε λοιποις λεγω εγω ουχ ο Κυριος]
Paul has no word about marriage from Jesus beyond the problem of divorce. This is no disclaimer of inspiration. He simply means that here he is not quoting a command of Jesus. [source]
Galatians 1:9 So say I now again [και αρτι παλιν λεγω]
Paul knows that he has just made what some will consider an extreme statement. But it is a deliberate one and not mere excitement. He will stand by it to the end. He calls down a curse on any one who proclaims a gospel to them contrary to that which they had received from him. [source]
Galatians 3:17 Now this I say [τουτο δε λεγω]
Now I mean this. He comes back to his main point and is not carried afield by the special application of σπερμα — sperma to Christ. [source]
Ephesians 5:32 But I speak [εγω δε λεγω]
“Now I mean.” Cf. 1 Corinthians 7:29; 1 Corinthians 15:50. In regard of Christ and of the church (εις Χριστον και εισ την εκκλησιαν — eis Christon kai ̣eiš tēn ekklēsian). “With reference to Christ and the church.” That is all that εις — eis here means. [source]
Colossians 2:4 This I say [τουτο λεγω]
Paul explains why he has made this great claim for Christ at this point in his discussion. [source]
1 Timothy 2:7 I speak the truth, I lie not [αλητειαν λεγω ου πσευδομαι]
A Pauline touch (Romans 9:1). Cf. Galatians 1:20; 2 Corinthians 11:31. Here alone he calls himself “a teacher of the Gentiles,” elsewhere apostle (Romans 11:13), minister (Romans 15:16), prisoner (Ephesians 3:1). [source]
Philemon 1:19 That I say not [ινα μη λεγω]
Neat idiom as in 2 Corinthians 9:4, delicately reminding Philemon that Paul had led him also to Christ. Thou owest to me even thine own self besides (και σεαυτον μοι προσοπειλεις — kai seauton moi prosopheileis). Old verb, only here in N.T., Paul using the verb οπειλω — opheilō of Philemon 1:18 with προς — pros added. He used every available argument to bring Philemon to see the higher ground of brotherhood in Christ about Onesimus. [source]
Philemon 1:21 Even beyond what I say [και υπερ α λεγω]
That can only mean that Paul “knows” (ειδως — eidōs second perfect active participle of οιδα — oida) that Philemon will set Onesimus free. He prefers that it come as Philemon‘s idea and wish rather than as a command from Paul. Paul has been criticized for not denouncing slavery in plain terms. But, when one considers the actual conditions in the Roman empire, he is a wise man who can suggest a better plan than the one pursued here for the ultimate overthrow of slavery. [source]
Hebrews 11:32 And what shall I more say? [Και τι ετι λεγω]
Deliberative present active subjunctive (same form as indicative, λεγω — legō). It is both a literary and an oratorical idiom here. He feels helpless to go on in the same style as he has done from Abel to Rahab (11:4-31). Will fail me if I tell about Literally, “will leave me telling about.” Present middle participle of διηγεομαι — diēgeomai to lead through, carry a discussion through, and masculine (disposing of Priscilla as possible author) with με — me Vivid and picturesque description of the author‘s embarrassment of riches as he contemplates the long list of the heroes of faith during the long years in Palestine. He mentions six names (Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephtha, David, Samuel) and then summarizes the rest under “the prophets” (των προπητων — tōn prophētōn the for-speakers for God) of whom Samuel was the leader.
