Matthew 7:29 And not as their scribes [και ουχ ως οι γραμματεις αυτων]
They had heard many sermons before from the regular rabbis in the synagogues. We have specimens of these discourses preserved in the Mishna and Gemara, the Jewish Talmud when both were completed, the driest, dullest collection of disjounted comments upon every conceivable problem in the history of mankind. The scribes quoted the rabbis before them and were afraid to express an idea without bolstering it up by some predecessor. Jesus spoke with the authority of truth, the reality and freshness of the morning light, and the power of God‘s Spirit. This sermon which made such a profound impression ended with the tragedy of the fall of the house on the sand like the crash of a giant oak in the forest. There was no smoothing over the outcome.

Matthew 10:16 As sheep in the midst of wolves [ως προβατα εν μεσωι λυκων]
The presence of wolves on every hand was a fact then and now. Some of these very sheep (Matthew 10:6) at the end will turn out to be wolves and cry for Christ‘s crucifixion. The situation called for consummate wisdom and courage. The serpent was the emblem of wisdom or shrewdness, intellectual keenness (Genesis 3:1; Psalm 58:5), the dove of simplicity (Hosea 7:11). It was a proverb, this combination, but one difficult of realization. Either without the other is bad (rascality or gullibility). The first clause with αρνας — arnas for προβατα — probata is in Luke 10:3 and apparently is in a Fragment of a Lost Gospel edited by Grenfell and Hunt. The combination of wariness and innocence is necessary for the protection of the sheep and the discomfiture of the wolves. For “harmless” (ακεραιοι — akeraioi) Moffatt and Goodspeed have “guileless,” Weymouth “innocent.” The word means “unmixed” (α — a privative and κεραννυμι — kerannumi), “unadulterated,” “simple,” “unalloyed.” [source]
Matthew 15:28 As thou wilt [ως τελεις]
Her great faith and her keen rejoinder won her case. [source]
Matthew 26:55 As against a robber [ως επι ληιστην]
As a robber, not as a thief, but a robber hiding from justice. He will be crucified between two robbers and on the very cross planned for their leader, Barabbas. They have come with no warrant for any crime, but with an armed force to seize Jesus as if a highway robber. Jesus reminds them that he used to sit (imperfect, εκατεζομην — ekathezomēn) in the temple and teach. But he sees God‘s purpose in it all for the prophets had foretold his “cup.” The desertion of Jesus by the disciples followed this rebuke of the effort of Peter. Jesus had surrendered. So they fled. [source]
Matthew 27:65 Make it as sure as you can [ασπαλισαστε ως οιδατε]
“Make it secure for yourselves (ingressive aorist middle) as you know how.” [source]
Mark 1:22 And not as their scribes [και ουχ ως οι γραμματεις]
Luke 4:32 has only “with authority” Mark has it “as having authority” He struck a note not found by the rabbi. They quoted other rabbis and felt their function to be expounders of the traditions which they made a millstone around the necks of the people. By so doing they set aside the word and will of God by their traditions and petty legalism (Mark 7:9, Mark 7:13). They were casuists and made false interpretations to prove their punctilious points of external etiquette to the utter neglect of the spiritual reality. The people noticed at once that here was a personality who got his power (authority) direct from God, not from the current scribes. “Mark omits much, and is in many ways a meagre Gospel, but it makes a distinctive contribution to the evangelic history in showing by a few realistic touches (this one of them) the remarkable personality of Jesus ” (Bruce). See note on Matthew 7:29 for the like impression made by the Sermon on the Mount where the same language occurs. The chief controversy in Christ‘s life was with these scribes, the professional teachers of the oral law and mainly Pharisees. At once the people see that Jesus stands apart from the old group. He made a sensation in the best sense of that word. There was a buzz of excitement at the new teacher that was increased by the miracle that followed the sermon. [source]
Mark 4:26 As if a man should cast [ως αντρωπος βαληι]
Note ως — hōs with the aorist subjunctive without αν — an It is a supposable case and so the subjunctive and the aorist tense because a single instance. Blass considers this idiom “quite impossible,” but it is the true text here and makes good sense (Robertson, Grammar, p. 968). The more common idiom would have been ως εαν — hōs ean (or αν — an). [source]
Mark 4:27 He knoweth not how [ως ουκ οιδεν αυτος]
Note position of ως — hōs (beginning) and αυτος — autos (end) of clause: How knows not he. The mystery of growth still puzzles farmers and scientists of today with all our modern knowledge. But nature‘s secret processes do not fail to operate because we are ignorant. This secret and mysterious growth of the kingdom in the heart and life is the point of this beautiful parable given only by Mark. “When man has done his part, the actual process of growth is beyond his reach or comprehension” (Swete). [source]
Mark 4:36 Even as he was [ως ην]
Vulgate, ita ut erat. Bengel says: sine apparatu. That is, they take Jesus along (παραλαμβανουσιν — paralambanousin) without previous preparation. [source]
Mark 6:34 They were as sheep not having a shepherd [ησαν ως προβατα μη εχοντα ποιμενα]
Matthew has these words in another context (Matthew 9:26), but Mark alone has them here. Μη — Mē is the usual negative for the participle in the Koiné. These excited and exciting people (Bruce) greatly needed teaching. Matthew 14:14 mentions healing as does Luke 9:11 (both preaching and healing). But a vigorous crowd of runners would not have many sick. The people had plenty of official leaders but these rabbis were for spiritual matters blind leaders of the blind. Jesus had come over for rest, but his heart was touched by the pathos of this situation. So “he began to teach them many things” Two accusatives with the verb of teaching and the present tense of the infinitive. He kept it up. [source]
Mark 8:24 I see men, for I behold them as trees walking [λεπω τους αντρωπους οτι ως δενδρα ορω περιπατουντας]
A vivid description of dawning sight. His vision was incomplete though he could tell that they were men because they were walking. This is the single case of a gradual cure in the healings wrought by Jesus. The reason for this method in this case is not given. [source]
Mark 10:15 As a little child [ως παιδιον]
How does a little child receive the kingdom of God? The little child learns to obey its parents simply and uncomplainingly. There are some new psychologists who argue against teaching obedience to children. The results have not been inspiring. Jesus here presents the little child with trusting and simple and loving obedience as the model for adults in coming into the kingdom. Jesus does not here say that children are in the kingdom of God because they are children. [source]
Mark 12:25 As angels in heaven [ως αγγελοι εν τωι ουρανωι]
So Matthew 22:30. Luke 20:36 has “equal unto the angels” “Their equality with angels consists in their deliverance from mortality and its consequences” (Swete). The angels are directly created, not procreated. [source]
Luke 3:4 As it is written [ως γεγραπται]
The regular formula for quotation, perfect passive indicative of γραπω — graphō the prophet The same phrase in Mark 1:2 (correct text) and Matthew 3:3. Mark, as we have seen, adds a quotation from Malachi 3:1 and Luke gives Isaiah 40:4 and Isaiah 40:5 of Isa. 40 not in Matthew or Mark (Luke 3:5, Luke 3:6). See note on Matthew 3:2; note on Mark 1:3 for discussion of Luke 3:4. [source]
Luke 3:23 Being Son (as was supposed) of Joseph, the son of Heli [ων υιος ως ενομιζετο Ιωσηπ του ελει]
For the discussion of the genealogy of Jesus, see notes on Matthew 1:1-17. The two genealogies differ very widely and many theories have been proposed about them. At once one notices that Luke begins with Jesus and goes back to Adam, the Son of God, while Matthew begins with Abraham and comes to “Joseph the husband of Mary of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ” (Matthew 1:16). Matthew employs the word “begot” each time, while Luke has the article του — tou repeating υιου — huiou (Son) except before Joseph. They agree in the mention of Joseph, but Matthew says that “Jacob begat Joseph” while Luke calls “Joseph the son of Heli.” There are other differences, but this one makes one pause. Joseph, of course, did not have two fathers. If we understand Luke to be giving the real genealogy of Jesus through Mary, the matter is simple enough. The two genealogies differ from Joseph to David except in the cases of Zorobabel and Salathiel. Luke evidently means to suggest something unusual in his genealogy by the use of the phrase “as was supposed” His own narrative in Luke 1:26-38 has shown that Joseph was not the actual father of Jesus. Plummer objects that, if Luke is giving the genealogy of Jesus through Mary, υιος — huios must be used in two senses here (son as was supposed of Joseph, and grandson through Mary of Heli). But that is not an unheard of thing. In neither list does Matthew or Luke give a complete genealogy. Just as Matthew uses “begat” for descent, so does Luke employ “son” in the same way for descendant. It was natural for Matthew, writing for Jews, to give the legal genealogy through Joseph, though he took pains to show in Matthew 1:16, Matthew 1:18-25 that Joseph was not the actual father of Jesus. It was equally natural for Luke, a Greek himself and writing for the whole world, to give the actual genealogy of Jesus through Mary. It is in harmony with Pauline universality (Plummer) that Luke carries the genealogy back to Adam and does not stop with Abraham. It is not clear why Luke adds “the Son of God” after Adam (Luke 3:38). Certainly he does not mean that Jesus is the Son of God only in the sense that Adam is. Possibly he wishes to dispose of the heathen myths about the origin of man and to show that God is the Creator of the whole human race, Father of all men in that sense. No mere animal origin of man is in harmony with this conception. [source]
Luke 6:22 Cast out your name as evil [εχβαλωσιν το ονομα υμων ως πονηρον]
Second aorist active subjunctive of εκβαλλω — ekballō common verb. The verb is used in Aristophanes, Sophocles, and Plato of hissing an actor off the stage. The name of Christian or disciple or Nazarene came to be a byword of contempt as shown in the Acts. It was even unlawful in the Neronian persecution when Christianity was not a religio licita.For the Son of man‘s sake (ενεκα του υιου του αντρωπου — heneka tou huiou tou anthrōpou). Jesus foretold what will befall those who are loyal to him. The Acts of the Apostles is a commentary on this prophecy. This is Christ‘s common designation of himself, never of others save by Stephen (Acts 7:56) and in the Apocalypse (Revelation 1:13; Revelation 14:14). But both Son of God and Son of man apply to him (John 1:50, 52; Matthew 26:63.). Christ was a real man though the Son of God. He is also the representative man and has authority over all men. [source]
Luke 9:52 To make ready for him [ως ετοιμασαι αυτωι]
ως — Hōs is correct here, not ωστε — hōste The only examples of the final use of ως — hōs with the infinitive in the N.T. are this one and Hebrews 7:9 (absolute use). In Acts 20:24 Westcott and Hort read ως τελειωσω — hōs teleiōsō and put ως τελειωσαι — hōs teleiōsai in the margin (Robertson, Grammar, p. 1091). [source]
Luke 10:3 As lambs [ως αρνας]
Here again the same language as that in Matthew 10:16 except that there “sheep” (προβατα — probata) appears instead of “lambs.” Pathetic picture of the risks of missionaries for Christ. They take their life in their hands. [source]
Luke 11:1 When he ceased [ως επαυσατο]
Supply προσευχομενος — proseuchomenos (praying), complementary or supplementary participle. [source]
Luke 15:19 As one [ως ενα]
The hired servants in his father‘s house are high above him now. [source]
Luke 15:25 As he came and drew nigh [ως ερχομενος ηγγισεν]
More exactly, “As, coming, he drew nigh,” for ερχομενος — erchomenos is present middle participle and ηγγισεν — ēggisen is aorist active indicative. [source]
Luke 16:1 That he was wasting [ως διασκορπιζων]
For the verb, see note on Luke 15:13. The use of ως — hōs with the participle is a fine Greek idiom for giving the alleged ground of a charge against one.His goods (τα υπαρχοντα αυτου — ta huparchonta autou). “His belongings,” a Lukan idiom. [source]
Luke 18:17 As a little child [ως παιδιον]
Jesus makes the child the model for those who seek entrance into the kingdom of God, not the adult the model for the child. He does not say that the child is already in the kingdom without coming to him. Jesus has made the child‘s world by understanding the child and opening the door for him. [source]
Luke 21:34 As a snare [ως παγις]
Old word from πηγνυμι — pēgnumi to make fast a net or trap. Paul uses it several times of the devil‘s snares for preachers (1 Timothy 3:7; 2 Timothy 2:26). [source]
Luke 22:52 As against a robber? [ως επι ληιστην]
They were treating Jesus as if he were a bandit like Barabbas. [source]
Luke 22:66 As soon as it was day [ως εγενετο ημερα]
Mark 15:1 (Matthew 27:1) has “morning.” [source]
Luke 23:14 As one that perverteth the people [ως αποστρεποντα τον λαον]
Pilate here condenses the three charges in Luke 23:2 into one (Plummer). He uses a more common compound of στρεπω — strephō here, αποστρεπω — apostrephō to turn away from, to seduce, to mislead, whereas διαστρεπω — diastrephō in Luke 23:2 has more the notion of disturbing (turning this way and that). Note the use of ως — hōs with the particle, the alleged reason. Pilate understands the charge against Jesus to be that he is a revolutionary agitator and a dangerous rival to Caesar, treason in plain words. [source]
John 4:1 When therefore [ως ουν]
Reference to John 3:22. the work of the Baptist and the jealousy of his disciples. Ουν — Oun is very common in John‘s Gospel in such transitions. The Lord So the best manuscripts (Neutral Alexandrian), though the Western class has ο Ιησους — ho Iēsous Mark usually has ο Ιησους — ho Iēsous and Luke often ο Κυριος — ho Kurios In the narrative portion of John we have usually ο Ιησους — ho Iēsous but ο Κυριος — ho Kurios in five passages (John 4:1; John 6:23; John 11:2; John 20:20; John 21:12). There is no reason why John should not apply ο Κυριος — ho Kurios to Jesus in the narrative sections as well as Luke. Bernard argues that these are “explanatory glosses,” not in the first draft of the Gospel. But why? When John wrote his Gospel he certainly held Jesus to be Κυριος — Kurios (Lord) as Luke did earlier when he wrote both Gospel and Acts This is hypercriticism. Knew Second aorist active indicative of γινωσκω — ginōskō The Pharisees knew this obvious fact. It was easy for Jesus to know the attitude of the Pharisees about it (John 2:24). Already the Pharisees are suspicious of Jesus. How that Declarative οτι — hoti (indirect assertion). Was making and baptizing more disciples than John Present active indicative in both verbs retained in indirect discourse. Recall the tremendous success of John‘s early ministry (Mark 1:5; Matthew 3:5; Luke 3:7, Luke 3:15) in order to see the significance of this statement that Jesus had forged ahead of him in popular favour. Already the Pharisees had turned violently against John who had called them broods of vipers. It is most likely that they drew John out about the marriage of Herod Antipas and got him involved directly with the tetrarch so as to have him cast into prison (Luke 3:19.). Josephus (Ant. XVIII. v. 2) gives a public reason for this act of Herod Antipas, the fear that John would “raise a rebellion,” probably the public reason for his private vengeance as given by Luke. Apparently John was cast into prison, though recently still free (John 3:24), before Jesus left for Galilee. The Pharisees, with John out of the way, turn to Jesus with envy and hate. [source]
John 6:12 And when they were filled [ως δε ενεπληστησαν]
First aorist (effective) passive indicative of εμπιμπλημι — empimplēmi old verb to fill in, to fill up, to fill completely. They were all satisfied. The Synoptics have εχορταστησαν — echortasthēsan like John 6:26 Gather up Second aorist active imperative of συναγω — sunagō to gather together. Broken pieces From κλαω — klaō to break. Not crumbs or scraps on the ground, but pieces broken by Jesus (Mark 6:41) and not consumed. Be lost Second aorist middle subjunctive of απολλυμι — apollumi with ινα — hina in purpose clause. Only in John. There was to be no wastefulness in Christ‘s munificence. The Jews had a custom of leaving something for those that served. [source]
John 6:16 When evening came [ως οπσια εγενετο]
“The late hour” The disciples were in no hurry to start back to Bethsaida in Galilee (Mark 6:45), Capernaum in John (John 6:17). [source]
John 11:18 About fifteen furlongs off [ως απο σταδιων δεκαπεντε]
The idiom of απο — apo with the ablative for distance is like the Latin a millibus passum duobus (Caesar, Bell. Gall. ii. 7), but it See it again in John 21:8; Revelation 14:20. [source]
John 8:7 When they continued asking [ως επεμενον ερωτωντες]
Imperfect active indicative of επιμενω — epimenō (waiting in addition or still, επι — epi old verb) with supplementary active participle of ερωταω — erōtaō to question. See same construction in Acts 12:16 The verb επιμενω — epimenō does not occur in John. They saw that Jesus seemed embarrassed, but did not know that it was as much because of “the brazen hardness of the prosecutors” as because of the shame of the deed. He lifted himself up First aorist active indicative of ανακυπτω — anakuptō the opposite of κατακυπτω — katakuptō to bend down (John 8:8) or of κατω κυπτω — katō kuptō (John 8:6). He that is without sin Verbal adjective Objective genitive. First cast The nominative πρωτος — prōtos means first before others, be the first to cast, not cast before he does something else. See John 20:4. The verb is second aorist imperative of βαλλω — ballō old verb to fling or cast. Jesus thus picks out the executioner in the case. [source]
John 11:33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping [Ιησους ουν ως ειδεν αυτην κλαιουσαν]
Proleptic position of “Jesus,” “Jesus therefore when he saw.” She was weeping at the feet of Jesus, not at the tomb. And the Jews also weeping Mary‘s weeping was genuine, that of the Jews was partly perfunctory and professional and probably actual “wailing” as the verb κλαιω — klaiō can mean. Κλαιω — Klaiō is joined with αλαλαζω — alalazō in Mark 5:38, with ολολυζω — ololuzō in James 5:1, with τορυβεω — thorubeō in Mark 5:39, with πεντεω — pentheō in Mark 16:10. It was an incongruous combination. He groaned in the spirit First aorist middle indicative of εμβριμαομαι — embrimaomai old verb (from εν — en and βριμη — brimē strength) to snort with anger like a horse. It occurs in the lxx (Dan 11:30) for violent displeasure. The notion of indignation is present in the other examples of the word in the N.T. (Mark 1:43; Mark 14:5; Matthew 9:30). So it seems best to see that sense here and in John 11:38. The presence of these Jews, the grief of Mary, Christ‘s own concern, the problem of the raising of Lazarus - all greatly agitated the spirit of Jesus (locative case τωι πνευματι — tōi pneumati). He struggled for self-control. Was troubled First aorist active indicative of ταρασσω — tarassō old verb to disturb, to agitate, with the reflexive pronoun, “he agitated himself” (not passive voice, not middle). “His sympathy with the weeping sister and the wailing crowd caused this deep emotion” (Dods). Some indignation at the loud wailing would only add to the agitation of Jesus. [source]
Acts 2:15 As ye suppose [ως υμεις υπολαμβανετε]
Note use of υμεις — humeis (ye) for decided emphasis. [source]
Acts 3:12 On us why do ye fasten your eyes? As though [ως]
ως — Hōs with the participle gives the alleged reason, not always the true one. Power (δυναμει — dunamei). Instrumental case, causa effectiva. Godliness Causa meritoria. Had made (πεποιηκοσιν — pepoiēkosin). Perfect active participle of ποιεω — poieō To walk Articular infinitive in the genitive case of result, purpose easily shading off into result (ecbatic infinitive) as here as is true also of ινα — hina f0). [source]
Acts 3:22 Like unto me [ως εμε]
As me, literally; Moses (Deuteronomy 18:14-18) claims that God raised him up as a prophet and that another and greater one will come, the Messiah. The Jews understood Moses to be a type of Christ (John 1:21). God spoke to Moses face to face (Exodus 33:11) and he was the greatest of the prophets (Deuteronomy 34:10). [source]
Acts 5:7 And it was about the space of three hours after [εγενετο δε ως ωρων τριων διαστημα]
Literally “Now there came an interval (διαστημα — diastēma distance, space between) of about (ως — hōs) three hours.” [source]
Acts 7:23 When he was well-nigh forty years old [ως επληρουτο αυτωι τεσσαρακονταετης χρονος]
A rather awkward Greek idiom for the English: “When a forty year old time (same idiom in Acts 13:18 and only twice in the N.T.) was being fulfilled (επληρουτο — eplērouto imperfect passive) for him (dative case).” The life of Moses is divided into three periods of forty years each (in Egypt 40 years, in Midian 40, governed Israel 40, 120 when he died, Deuteronomy 34:7). [source]
Acts 7:37 Like unto me [ως εμε]
This same passage Peter quoted to the crowd in Solomon‘s Porch (Acts 3:22). Stephen undoubtedly means to argue that Moses was predicting the Messiah as a prophet like himself who is no other than Jesus so that these Pharisees are in reality opposing Moses. It was a neat turn. [source]
Acts 9:18 As if it were scales [ως λεπιδες]
Chiefly late word (lxx) from λεπω — lepō to peel, and only here in the N.T. See Tobit 11:13, “The white film peeled from his eyes” Luke does not say that actual “scales” fell from the eyes of Saul, but that it felt that way to him as his sight returned, “as if” Medical writers use the word λεπις — lepis for pieces of the skin that fall off (Hobart, Medical Language of St. Luke, p. 39). Luke may have heard Paul tell of this vivid experience. Was baptized (εβαπτιστη — ebaptisthē). First aorist passive indicative. Apparently by Ananias (Acts 22:16) as a symbol of the new life in Christ already begun, possibly in the pool in the house of Judas as today water is plentiful in Damascus or in Abana or Pharpar (Furneaux), better than all the waters of Israel according to Naaman (2 Kings 5:12). [source]
Acts 9:23 When many days were fulfilled [ως επληρουντο ημεραι ικαναι]
Imperfect passive indicative of πληροω — plēroō old and common verb, were in process of being fulfilled. How “many” (considerable, ικαναι — hikanai common word for a long period) Luke does not say nor does he say that Saul spent all of this period in Damascus, as we know from Galatians 1:16-18 was not the case. Paul there states definitely that he went away from Damascus to Arabia and returned there before going back to Jerusalem and that the whole period was about “three years” which need not mean three full years, but at least portions of three. Most of the three years was probably spent in Arabia because of the two explosions in Damascus (before his departure and on his return) and because he was unknown in Jerusalem as a Christian on his arrival there. It cannot be argued from the frequent lacunae in the Acts that Luke tells all that was true or that he knew. He had his own methods and aims as every historian has. We are at perfect liberty to supplement the narrative in the Acts with items from Paul‘s Epistles. So we must assume the return of Saul from Arabia at this juncture, between Acts 9:22, Acts 9:23, when Saul resumed his preaching in the Jewish synagogues with renewed energy and grasp after the period of mature reflection and readjustment in Arabia. [source]
Acts 10:47 As well as we [ως και ημεις]
The argument was conclusive. God had spoken. Note the query of the eunuch to Philip (Acts 8:36). [source]
Acts 13:25 As John was fulfilling his course [ως επληρου Ιωανης τον δρομον]
Imperfect active of πληροω — plēroō describing his vivid ministry without defining the precise period when John asked the question. Paul uses this word δρομος — dromos (course) of his own race (Acts 20:24; 2 Timothy 4:7). [source]
Acts 16:15 And when she was baptized [ως δε εβαπτιστη]
First aorist passive indicative of βαπτιζω — baptizō The river Gangites was handy for the ordinance and she had now been converted and was ready to make this public declaration of her faith in Jesus Christ. [source]
Acts 17:15 That they should come to him with all speed [ινα ως ταχιστα ελτωσιν προς αυτον]
Note the neat Greek idiom ως ταχιστα — hōs tachista as quickly as possible (good Attic idiom). The indirect command and purpose (ιναελτωσιν — hinȧelthōsin second aorist active subjunctive) is also neat Greek (Robertson, Grammar, p. 1046). [source]
Acts 17:22 Somewhat superstitious [ως δεισιδαιμονεστερους]
The Authorized Version has “too superstitious,” the American Standard “very religious.” Δεισιδαιμων — Deisidaimōn is a neutral word (from δειδω — deidō to fear, and δαιμων — daimōn deity). The Greeks used it either in the good sense of pious or religious or the bad sense of superstitious. Thayer suggests that Paul uses it “with kindly ambiguity.” Page thinks that Luke uses the word to represent the religious feeling of the Athenians (religiosus) which bordered on superstition. The Vulgate has superstitiosiores. In Acts 25:19 Festus uses the term δεισιδαιμονια — deisidaimonia for “religion.” It seems unlikely that Paul should give this audience a slap in the face at the very start. The way one takes this adjective here colours Paul‘s whole speech before the Council of Areopagus. The comparative here as in Acts 17:21 means more religions than usual (Robertson, Grammar, pp. 664f.), the object of the comparison not being expressed. The Athenians had a tremendous reputation for their devotion to religion, “full of idols” (Acts 17:16). [source]
Acts 19:9 But when some were hardened [ως δε τινες εσκληρυνοντο]
Imperfect passive of σκληρυνω — sklērunō causative like hiphil in Hebrew, to make hard In lxx and Hippocrates and Galen (in medical writings). In N.T. only here and Romans 9:18 and Romans 9:4 times in Hebrews 3:8, Hebrews 3:13, Hebrews 3:15; Hebrews 4:7, Hebrews 4:8 quoting and referring to Psalm 95:8 about hardening the heart like a gristle. The inevitable reaction against Paul went on even in Ephesus though slowly. [source]
Acts 20:20 How that I shrank not [ως ουδεν υπεστειλαμεν]
Still indirect discourse (question) after επισταστε — epistasthe (ye know) with ως — hōs like πως — pōs in Acts 20:18. First aorist middle of υποστελλω — hupostellō old verb to draw under or back. It was so used of drawing back or down sails on a ship and, as Paul had so recently been on the sea, that may be the metaphor here. But it is not necessarily so as the direct middle here makes good sense and is frequent, to withdraw oneself, to cower, to shrink, to conceal, to dissemble as in Habakkuk 2:4 (Hebrews 10:38). Demosthenes so used it to shrink from declaring out of fear for others. This open candour of Paul is supported by his Epistles (1 Thessalonians 2:4, 1 Thessalonians 2:11; 2 Corinthians 4:2; Galatians 1:10). [source]
Acts 20:24 So that I may accomplish my course [ως τελειωσω δρομον μου]
Rather, “In order that” (purpose, not result). Aleph and B read τελειωσω — teleiōsō here (first aorist active subjunctive) rather than τελειωσαι — teleiōsai (first aorist active infinitive). It is the lone instance in the N.T. of ως — hōs as a final particle (Robertson, Grammar, p. 987). Paul in Acts 13:25 in his sermon at Antioch in Pisidia described John as fulfilling his course and in 2 Timothy 4:7 he will say: “I have finished my course” He will run the race to the end. Which I received from the Lord Jesus (ην ελαβον παρα του κυριου Ιησου — hēn elabon para tou kuriou Iēsou). Of that fact he never had a doubt and it was a proud boast (Galatians 1:1; Romans 11:13). The gospel of the grace of God To Paul the gospel consisted in the grace of God. See this word “grace” (χαρις — charis) in Romans and his other Epistles. [source]
Acts 23:15 As though ye would judge of his case more exactly [ως μελλοντας διαγινωσκειν ακριβεστερον τα περι αυτου]
ως — Hōs with the participle gives the alleged reason as here. So also in Acts 23:20. Διαγνοσκω — Diagnoskō old verb to distinguish accurately, only here in N.T. and Acts 24:22. [source]
Acts 23:20 As though thou wouldest inquire [ως μελλων πυντανεσται]
Just as in Acts 23:15 except that here μελλων — mellōn refers to Lysias instead of to the conspirators as in Acts 23:15. The singular is used by the youth out of deference to the authority of Lysias and so modifies a bit the scheming of the conspirators, not “absurd” as Page holds. [source]
Acts 25:10 As thou also very well knowest [ως και συ καλλιον επιγινωσκεις]
“As thou also dost understand (hast additional knowledge, επιγινωσκεις — epiginōskeis) better” (than thou art willing to admit). That this is Paul‘s meaning by the use of the comparative καλλιον — kallion (positive καλως — kalōs) is made plain by the confession of Festus to Agrippa in Acts 25:18. Paul says that Festus knows that he has done no wrong to the Jews at all (ουδεν ηδικηκα — ouden ēdikēka) and yet he is trying to turn him over to the wrath of the Jews in Jerusalem. [source]
Acts 27:30 As though [ως]
The alleged reason, a common Greek idiom with ως — hōs and the participle (Robertson, Grammar, p. 966). Here with μελλοντων — mellontōn [source]
Acts 28:19 Not that I had aught to accuse my nation of [ουχ ως του ετνους μου εχων τι κατηγορειν]
This use of ως — hōs with a participle (εχων — echōn) is common in Greek for the alleged reason. The genitive case with the infinitive κατηγορειν — katēgorein is regular. Paul says ετνος — ethnos instead of λαος — laos as in Acts 24:17; Acts 26:4. [source]
Romans 1:21 Glorified not as God [ουχ ως τεον εδοχασαν]
They knew more than they did. This is the reason for the condemnation of the heathen (Romans 2:12-16), the failure to do what they know. [source]
Romans 4:17 Calleth the things that are not as though they were [καλουντος τα μη οντα ως οντα]
“Summons the non-existing as existing.” Abraham‘s body was old and decrepit. God rejuvenated him and Sarah (Hebrews 11:19). [source]
Romans 5:15 But not as the trespass [αλλ ουχ ως]
It is more contrast than parallel: “the trespass” (το παραπτωμα — to paraptōma the slip, fall to one side) over against the free gift (το χαρισμα — to charisma of grace χαρις — charis). [source]
Romans 8:36 As sheep for the slaughter [ως προβατα σπαγης]
Objective genitive (σπαγης — sphagēs). [source]
Romans 10:15 How beautiful [ως ωραιοι]
A quotation from Isaiah 52:7 more like the Hebrew than the lxx, picturing the messengers of the restoration from the Jewish captivity. Paul assumes that the missionaries (αποστολοι — apostoloi) have been sent as implied in Romans 10:14. [source]
Romans 15:24 Whensoever I go [ως αν πορευωμαι]
Indefinite temporal clause with ως αν — hōs an and the present middle subjunctive (cf. 1 Corinthians 11:34; Philemon 2:23 with aorist subjunctive). [source]
1 Corinthians 3:1 But as unto carnal [αλλ ως σαρκινοις]
Latin carneus. “As men o‘flesh,” Braid Scots; “as worldlings,” Moffatt. This form in ινος — ̇inos like λιτινος — lithinos in 2 Corinthians 3:3 means the material of flesh, “not on tablets of stone, but on fleshen tablets on hearts.” So in Hebrews 7:16. But in Romans 7:14 Paul says, “I am fleshen It is not culpable to a babe in Christ It is one of the tragedies of the minister‘s life that he has to keep on speaking to the church members “as unto babes in Christ” (ως νηπιοις εν Χριστωι — hōs nēpiois en Christōi), who actually glory in their long babyhood whereas they ought to be teachers of the gospel instead of belonging to the cradle roll. Paul‘s goal was for all the babes to become adults (Colossians 1:28). [source]
1 Corinthians 3:5 As the Lord gave to him [ως ο Κυριος εδωκεν]
Hence no minister of the Lord like Apollos and Paul has any basis for pride or conceit nor should be made the occasion for faction and strife. This idea Paul enlarges upon through chapters 1 Corinthians 3; 4 and it is made plain in chapter 1 Corinthians 12. [source]
1 Corinthians 3:10 As a wise masterbuilder [ως σοπος αρχιτεκτων]
Paul does not shirk his share in the work at Corinth with all the sad outcome there. He absolves Apollos from responsibility for the divisions. He denies that he himself is to blame. In doing so he has to praise himself because the Judaizers who fomented the trouble at Corinth had directly blamed Paul. It is not always wise for a preacher to defend himself against attack, but it is sometimes necessary. Factions in the church were now a fact and Paul went to the bottom of the matter. God gave Paul the grace to do what he did. This is the only New Testament example of the old and common word αρχιτεκτων — architektōn our architect. Τεκτων — Tektōn is from τικτω — tiktō to beget, and means a begetter, then a worker in wood or stone, a carpenter or mason (Matthew 13:55; Mark 6:3). Αρχι — Archi̇ is an old inseparable prefix like αρχαγγελος — archaggelos (archangel), αρχεπισχοπος — archepiscopos (archbishop), αρχιερευς — archiereus (chiefpriest). Αρχιτεκτων — Architektōn occurs in the papyri and inscriptions in an even wider sense than our use of architect, sometimes of the chief engineers. But Paul means to claim primacy as pastor of the church in Corinth as is true of every pastor who is the architect of the whole church life and work. All the workmen “As a wise architect I laid a foundation” Much depends on the wisdom of the architect in laying the foundation. This is the technical phrase (Luke 6:48; Luke 14:29), a cognate accusative for τεμελιον — themelion The substantive τεμελιον — themelion is from the same root τε — the as ετηκα — ethēka We cannot neatly reproduce the idiom in English. “I placed a placing” does only moderately well. Paul refers directly to the events described by Luke in Acts 18:1-18. The aorist ετηκα — ethēka is the correct text, not the perfect τετεικα — tetheika [source]
1 Corinthians 3:15 Yet so as through fire [ουτως δε ως δια πυρος]
Clearly Paul means with his work burned down (1 Corinthians 3:15). It is the tragedy of a fruitless life, of a minister who built so poorly on the true foundation that his work went up in smoke. His sermons were empty froth or windy words without edifying or building power. They left no mark in the lives of the hearers. It is the picture of a wasted life. The one who enters heaven by grace, as we all do who are saved, yet who brings no sheaves with him. There is no garnered grain the result of his labours in the harvest field. There are no souls in heaven as the result of his toil for Christ, no enrichment of character, no growth in grace. [source]
1 Corinthians 4:7 As if thou hadst not received it [ως μη λαβων]
This neat participial clause (second aorist active of λαμβανω — lambanō) with ως — hōs (assumption) and negative μη — mē punctures effectually the inflated bag of false pride. What pungent questions Paul has asked. Robertson and Plummer say of Augustine, “Ten years before the challenge of Pelagius, the study of St. Paul‘s writings, and especially of this verse and of Romans 9:16, had crystallized in his mind the distinctively Augustinian doctrines of man‘s total depravity, of irresistible grace, and of absolute predestination.” Human responsibility does exist beyond a doubt, but there is no foundation for pride and conceit. [source]
1 Corinthians 4:9 As men doomed to die [ως επιτανατιους]
Late word, here alone in N.T. The lxx (Bel and the Dragon 31) has it for those thrown daily to the lions. Dionysius of Halicarnassus (A.R. vii. 35) uses it of those thrown from the Tarpeian Rock. The gladiators would say morituri salutamus. All this in violent contrast to the kingly Messianic pretensions of the Corinthians. A spectacle (τεατρον — theatron). Cf. Hebrews 11:33-40. The word, like our theatre, means the place of the show (Acts 19:29, Acts 19:31). Then, it means the spectacle shown there (τεαμα — theama or τεα — thea), and, as here, the man exhibited as the show like the verb τεατριζομενοι — theatrizomenoi made a spectacle (Hebrews 10:33). Sometimes it refers to the spectators (τεαται — theatai) like our “house” for the audience. Here the spectators include “the world, both to angels and men” (τωι κοσμωι και αγγελοις και αντρωποις — tōi kosmōi kai aggelois kai anthrōpois), dative case of personal interest. [source]
1 Corinthians 4:18 As though I were not coming to you [ως μη ερχομενου μου προς υμας]
Genitive absolute with particle (assuming it as so) with μη — mē as negative. [source]
1 Corinthians 4:13 As the filth of the world [ως περικαταρματα του κοσμου]
Literally, sweepings, rinsings, cleansings around, dust from the floor, from περικαταιρω — perikathairō to cleanse all around (Plato and Aristotle) and so the refuse thrown off in cleansing. Here only in the N.T. and only twice elsewhere. Καταρμα — Katharma was the refuse of a sacrifice. In Proverbs 21:18 περικαταρμα — perikatharma occurs for the scapegoat. The other example is Epictetus iii. 22, 78, in the same sense of an expiatory offering of a worthless fellow. It was the custom in Athens during a plague to throw to the sea some wretch in the hope of appeasing the gods. One hesitates to take it so here in Paul, though Findlay thinks that possibly in Ephesus Paul may have heard some such cry like that in the later martyrdoms Christiani ad leones. At any rate in 1 Corinthians 15:32 Paul says “I fought with wild beasts” and in 2 Corinthians 1:9 “I had the answer of death.” Some terrible experience may be alluded to here. The word shows the contempt of the Ephesian populace for Paul as is shown in Acts 19:23-41 under the influence of Demetrius and the craftsmen. The offscouring of all things (παντων περιπσημα — pantōn peripsēma). Late word, here only in N.T., though in Tob. 5:18. The word was used in a formula at Athens when victims were flung into the sea, περιπσημα ημων γενου — peripsēma hēmōn genou (Became a περιπσημα — peripsēma for us), in the sense of expiation. The word merely means scraping around from περιπσαω — peripsaō offscrapings or refuse. That is probably the idea here as in Tob. 5:18. It came to have a complimentary sense for the Christians who in a plague gave their lives for the sick. But it is a bold figure here with Paul of a piece with περικαταρματα — perikatharmata f0). [source]
1 Corinthians 7:7 Even as I myself [ως και εμαυτον]
This clearly means that Paul was not then married and it is confirmed by 1 Corinthians 9:5. Whether he had been married and was now a widower turns on the interpretation of Acts 26:10 “I cast my vote.” If this is taken literally (the obvious way to take it) as a member of the Sanhedrin, Paul was married at that time. There is no way to decide. His own gift from God (ιδιον χαρισμα εκ τεου — idion charisma ek theou). So each must decide for himself. See note on 1 Corinthians 1:7 for χαρισμα — charisma a late word from χαριζομαι — charizomai f0). [source]
1 Corinthians 7:17 As the Lord hath distributed to each man [εκαστωι ως μεμερικεν ο κυριος]
Perfect active indicative of μεριζω — merizō old verb from μερος — meros apart. Each has his lot from the Lord Jesus, has his call from God. He is not to seek a rupture of the marriage relation if the unbeliever does not ask for it. And so ordain I (και ουτως διατασσομαι — kai houtōs diatassomai). Military term, old word, to arrange in all the churches (distributed, δια — diȧ). Paul is conscious of authoritative leadership as the apostle of Christ to the Gentiles. [source]
1 Corinthians 7:25 As one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful [ως ηλεημενος υπο κυριου πιστος ειναι]
Perfect passive participle of ελεεω — eleeō old verb to receive mercy Πιστος — Pistos is predicate nominative with infinitive ειναι — einai This language, so far from being a disclaimer of inspiration, is an express claim to help from the Lord in the forming of this duly considered judgment, which is in no sense a command, but an inspired opinion. [source]
1 Corinthians 7:29 As though they had none [ως μη εχοντες]
This use of ως — hōs with the participle for an assumed condition is regular and μη — mē in the Koiné{[28928]}š is the normal negative of the participle. So the idiom runs on through 1 Corinthians 7:31. [source]
1 Corinthians 7:30 As though they possessed not [ως μη κατεχοντες]
See this use of κατεχω — katechō old verb to hold down (Luke 14:9), to keep fast, to possess, in 2 Corinthians 6:10. Paul means that all earthly relations are to hang loosely about us in view of the second coming. [source]
1 Corinthians 7:31 As not abusing it [ως μη καταχρημενοι]
Perfective use of κατα — kata in composition, old verb, but here only in N.T., to use up, use to the full. Papyri give examples of this sense. This is more likely the idea than “abusing” it. For the fashion of this world passeth away (παραγει γαρ το σχημα του κοσμου τουτου — paragei gar to schēma tou kosmou toutou). Cf. 1 John 2:17. Σχημα — Schēma is the habitus, the outward appearance, old word, in N.T. only here and Philemon 2:7. Παραγει — Paragei (old word) means “passes along” like a moving panorama (movie show!). Used of Jesus passing by in Jericho (Matthew 20:30). [source]
1 Corinthians 9:20 As a Jew [ως Ιουδαιος]
He was a Jew and was not ashamed of it (Acts 18:18; Acts 21:26). [source]
1 Corinthians 9:26 As not uncertainly [ως ουκ αδηλως]
Instead of exhorting them further Paul describes his own conduct as a runner in the race. He explains ουτως — houtōs Αδηλως — Adēlōs old adverb, only here in N.T. His objective is clear, with Christ as the goal (Philemon 3:14). He kept his eye on Christ as Christ watched him. Fight (πυκτευω — pukteuō). Paul changes the metaphor from the runner to the boxer. Old verb (only here in N.T.) from πυκτης — puktēs (pugilist) and that from πυγμη — pugmē (fist). See note on Mark 7:3). As not beating the air A boxer did this when practising without an adversary (cf. doing “the daily dozen”) and this was called “shadow-fighting” He smote something more solid than air. Probably ως ουκ αερα δερων — ou negatives σκιαμαχια — aera though it still occurs with the participle as a strong and positive negative. [source]
1 Corinthians 10:15 As to wise men [ως προνιμοις]
No sarcasm as in 2 Corinthians 11:19, but plea that they make proper use of the mind (πρεν — phren) given them. [source]
1 Corinthians 11:34 Whensoever I come [ως αν ελτω]
Common idiom for temporal clause of future time (conjunction like ως — hōs with αν — an and aorist subjunctive ελτω — elthō). [source]
1 Corinthians 12:2 Howsoever ye might be led [ως αν ηγεστε]
Rather, “as often as ye were led.” For this use of ως αν — hōs an for the notion of repetition, regular Koiné{[28928]}š idiom, see Robertson, Grammar, p. 974. Cf. οπου αν — hopou an in Mark 6:56. [source]
1 Corinthians 14:33 As in all the churches of the saints [ως εν πασαις ταις εκκλησιαις των αγιων]
Orderly reverence is a mark of the churches. This is a proper conclusion of his argument as in 1 Corinthians 11:16. [source]
2 Corinthians 3:5 As from ourselves [ως εχ αυτων]
He says it over again with preposition εχ — ex (out of). He has no originating power for such confidence. Sufficiency (ικανοτης — hikanotēs). Old word, only here in N.T. [source]
2 Corinthians 5:19 To wit, that [ως οτι]
Latin puts it quoniam quidem. It is an unclassical idiom, but occurs in the papyri and inscriptions (Moulton, Prol., p. 212; Robertson, Grammar, p. 1033). It is in Esther 4:14. See also 2 Corinthians 11:21; 2 Thessalonians 2:2. It probably means “how that.” [source]
2 Corinthians 5:20 As though God were intreating by us [ως του τεου παρακαλουντος δι ημων]
Genitive absolute with ως — hōs used with the participle as often to give the reason (apparent or real). Here God speaks through Christ‘s Legate. Be ye reconciled to God (καταλλαγητε τωι τεωι — katallagēte tōi theōi). Second aorist passive imperative of καταλλασσω — katallassō and used with the dative case. “Get reconciled to God,” and do it now. This is the ambassador‘s message as he bears it to men from God. [source]
2 Corinthians 6:8 As deceivers and yet true [ως]
Paul takes up δια — hōs now in place of εν — dia which succeeded και — en Note use of Πλανος — kai in sense of “and yet” (adversative). πλαναω — Planos is late word (Diodorus, Josephus) for wandering, vagabond, impostor (cf. πλανος — planaō to lead astray, used of Christ, John 7:12). In N.T. only here; Matthew 27:63 (of Christ by Pharisees); 2 John 1:7. “In the Clementines St. Paul is expressly described by his adversaries as πλανην — planos and as disseminating deceit Such slander from one‘s enemies is praise. [source]
2 Corinthians 6:9 As unknown and yet well known [ως αγνοουμενοι και επιγινοσκομενοι]
“As ignored (as nonentities, obscure, without proper credentials 2 Corinthians 3:2) and yet fully recognized (by all who really matter as in 2 Corinthians 11:6).” [source]
2 Corinthians 6:10 As having nothing and yet possessing all things [ως μηδεν εχοντες και παντα κατεχοντες]
Contrast between μηδεν — mēden (nothing) and παντα — panta (all things, cf. 1 Corinthians 3:22) and εχω — echō (to have) and κατεχω — katechō (to hold down, to hold fast). Play on words (simple and compound) as in 2 Corinthians 3:2; 2 Corinthians 4:8. Climax of Paul‘s panegyric on the Christian ministry. He now resumes the thread of the story broken off in 2 Corinthians 2:14. [source]
2 Corinthians 9:5 And not of extortion [και μη ως πλεονεχιαν]
“And not as covetousness.” Some offerings exhibit covetousness on the part of the giver by their very niggardliness. [source]
2 Corinthians 10:2 As if we walked according to the flesh [ως κατα σαρκα περιπατουντας]
Another sneering charge as made plain by the use of ως — hōs with the participle for the alleged reason. [source]
2 Corinthians 10:9 As if I would terrify you by my letters [ως αν εκποβειν υμας δια των επιστολων]
This use of ως αν — hōs an with the infinitive is seen in the papyri (Moulton, Prolegomena, p. 167) and it is not αν — an in the apodosis (Robertson, Grammar, pp. 974, 1040). The active of this old compound verb means to frighten, to terrify. Here only in N.T. It is common in the lxx (Job 7:14; 33:16). Note plural (letters) here and cf. 1 Corinthians 5:9; 2 Corinthians 2:3. [source]
2 Corinthians 11:15 As ministers of righteousness [ως διακονοι δικαιοσυνης]
Jesus (John 10:1-21) terms these false shepherds thieves and robbers. It is a tragedy to see men in the livery of heaven serve the devil. [source]
2 Corinthians 11:16 Yet as foolish [καν ως απρονα]
“Even if as foolish.” Paul feels compelled to boast of his career and work as an apostle of Christ after the terrible picture just drawn of the Judaizers. He feels greatly embarrassed in doing it. Some men can do it with complete composure (sang froid). [source]
2 Corinthians 11:21 As though [ως οτι]
Presented as the charge of another. “They more than tolerate those who trample on them while they criticize as ‹weak‘ one who shows them great consideration” (Plummer). After these prolonged explanations Paul “changes his tone from irony to direct and masterful assertion” (Bernard). I am bold also (τολμω καγω — tolmō kagō). Real courage. Cf. 2 Corinthians 10:2, 2 Corinthians 10:12. [source]
2 Corinthians 13:2 As when I was present the second time [ως παρων το δευτερον]
This translation assumes the second visit as already made. It is a natural way to take the Greek ως παρων — hōs parōn But ως — hōs with παρων — parōn can also mean “as if present” the second time (Authorized Version). Probably “as when” is the more natural rendering, but the other cannot be ruled entirely out in view of 2 Corinthians 1:15-23. [source]
2 Corinthians 13:7 Though we be as reprobate [ημεις δε ως αδοκιμοι ωμεν]
Literally, “And that” Paul wishes them to do no wrong He has no desire to exercise his apostolic authority and “appear approved” He had far rather see them do “the noble thing” (το καλον — to kalon) even if it should make him appear disapproved after all that he has said. [source]
Galatians 3:16 But as of one [αλλ ως επ ενος]
But as in the case of one. [source]
Galatians 4:12 Be as I am [γινεστε ως εγω]
Present middle imperative, “Keep on becoming as I am.” He will not give them over, afraid though he is. [source]
Galatians 4:14 As an angel of God [ως αγγελον τεου]
In spite of his illness and repulsive appearance, whatever it was. Not a mere “messenger” of God, but a very angel, even as Christ Jesus. We know that at Lystra Paul was at first welcomed as Hermes the god of oratory (Acts 14:12.). But that narrative hardly applies to these words, for they turned against Paul and Barnabas then and there at the instigation of Jews from Antioch in Pisidia and Iconium. [source]
Galatians 6:10 As we have opportunity [ως καιρον εχωμεν]
Indefinite comparative clause (present subjunctive without αν — an). “As we have occasion at any time.” [source]
Ephesians 5:22 As unto the Lord [ως τωι Κυριωι]
So here instead of ως ανηκεν εν Κυριωι — hōs anēken en Kuriōi of Colossians 3:18. [source]
Ephesians 5:23 As Christ also is the head of the church [ως και ο Χριστος κεπαλη της εκκλησιας]
No article with κεπαλη — kephalē “as also Christ is head of the church.” This is the comparison, but with a tremendous difference which Paul hastens to add either in an appositional clause or as a separate sentence. Himself the saviour of the body (αυτος σωτηρ του σωματος — autos sōtēr tou sōmatos). He means the church as the body of which Christ is head and Saviour. [source]
Ephesians 6:6 But as servants of Christ [αλλ ως δουλοι Χριστου]
Better “slaves of Christ” as Paul rejoiced to call himself (Philemon 1:1). [source]
Philippians 2:12 Not as in my presence only [μη ως εν τηι παρουσιαι μονον]
B and a few other MSS. omit ως — hōs The negative μη — mē goes with the imperative κατεργαζεστε — katergazesthe (work out), not with υπηκουσατε — hupēkousate (obeyed) which would call for ουχ — ouch [source]
Philippians 2:23 So soon as I shall see [ως αν απιδω]
Indefinite temporal clause with ως αν — hōs an and the second aorist active subjunctive of αποραω — aphoraō The oldest MSS. (Aleph A B D) have απιδω — aphidō (old aspirated form) rather than απιδω — apidō [source]
Colossians 2:6 As therefore ye received [ως ουν παρελαβετε]
Second aorist active indicative of παραλαμβανω — paralambanō in same sense as in 1 Thessalonians 4:1; Philemon 4:9 (both μαντανω — manthanō and παραλαμβανω — paralambanō) that is like μαντανω — manthanō to learn (Colossians 1:7), from Epaphras and others. [source]
Colossians 2:20 As though living in the world [ως ζωντες εν κοσμωι]
Concessive use of the participle with ως — hōs The picture is that of baptism, having come out (F. B. Meyer) on the other side of the grave, we are not to act as though we had not done so. We are in the Land of Beulah. [source]
Colossians 3:12 As God‘s elect [ως εκλεκτοι του τεου]
Same phrase in Romans 8:33; Titus 1:1. In the Gospels a distinction exists between κλητος — klētos and εκλεκτος — eklektos (Matthew 24:22, Matthew 24:24, Matthew 24:31), but no distinction appears in Paul‘s writings. Here further described as “holy and beloved” The items in the new clothing for the new man in Christ Paul now gives in contrast with what was put off (Colossians 3:8). The garments include a heart of compassion (σπλαγχνα οικτιρμου — splagchna oiktirmou the nobler viscera as the seat of emotion as in Luke 1:78; Philemon 1:8), kindness (χρηστοτητα — chrēstotēta as in Galatians 5:22), humility (ταπεινοπροσυνην — tapeinophrosunēn in the good sense as in Philemon 2:3), meekness (πραυτητα — prautēta in Galatians 5:23 and in Ephesians 4:2 also with ταπεινοπροσυνη — tapeinophrosunē), long-suffering (μακροτυμιαν — makrothumian in Galatians 5:22; Colossians 1:11; James 5:10). [source]
Colossians 3:18 As is fitting in the Lord [ως ανηκεν εν Κυριωι]
This is an idiomatic use of the imperfect indicative with verbs of propriety in present time (Robertson, Grammar, p. 919). Wives have rights and privileges, but recognition of the husband‘s leadership is essential to a well-ordered home, only the assumption is that the husband has a head and a wise one. [source]
Colossians 3:23 As unto the Lord [ως τωι Κυριωι]
Even when unto men. This is the highest test of worthwhile service. If it were only always true! [source]
Colossians 4:4 As I ought to speak [ως δει με λαλησαι]
Wonderful as Paul‘s preaching was to his hearers and seems to us, he was never satisfied with it. What preacher can be? [source]
1 Thessalonians 2:4 Not as pleasing men [ουχ ως αντρωποις αρεσκοντες]
Dative case with αρεσκω — areskō as in Galatians 1:10. Few temptations assail the preacher more strongly than this one to please men, even if God is not pleased, though with the dim hope that God will after all condone or overlook. Nothing but experience will convince some preachers how fickle is popular favour and how often it is at the cost of failure to please God. And yet the preacher wishes to win men to Christ. It is all as subtle as it is deceptive. God tests our hearts (the very verb δοκιμαζω — dokimazō used in the beginning of this verse) and he is the only one whose approval matters in the end of the day (1 Corinthians 4:5). [source]
1 Thessalonians 2:6 When we might have been burdensome, as apostles of Christ [δυναμενοι εν βαρει ειναι ως Χριστου αποστολοι]
Westcott and Hort put this clause in 1 Thessalonians 2:7. Probably a concessive participle, though being able to be in a position of weight (either in matter of finance or of dignity, or a burden on your funds or “men of weight” as Moffatt suggests). Milligan suggests that Paul “plays here on the double sense of the phrase” like the Latin proverb: Honos propter onus. So he adds, including Silas and Timothy, as Christ‘s apostles, as missionaries clearly, whether in the technical sense or not (cf. Acts 14:4, Acts 14:14; 2 Corinthians 8:23; 2 Corinthians 11:13; Romans 16:7; Philemon 2:25; Revelation 2:2). They were entitled to pay as “Christ‘s apostles” (cf. 1 Corinthians 9; 2 Corinthians 11:7.), though they had not asked for it. [source]
1 Thessalonians 2:7 As when a nurse cherishes her own children [ως εαν τροπος ταλπηι τα εαυτης τεκνα]
This comparative clause with ως εαν — hōs ean (Mark 4:26; Galatians 6:10 without εαν — ean or αν — an) and the subjunctive (Robertson, Grammar, p. 968) has a sudden change of the metaphor, as is common with Paul (1 Timothy 5:24; 2 Corinthians 3:13.) from babes to nurse (τροπος — trophos), old word, here only in the N.T., from τρεπω — trephō to nourish, τροπη — trophē nourishment. It is really the mother-nurse “who suckles and nurses her own children” (Lightfoot), a use found in Sophocles, and a picture of Paul‘s tender affection for the Thessalonians. Ταλπω — Thalpō is an old word to keep warm, to cherish with tender love, to foster. In N.T. only here and Ephesians 5:29. [source]
1 Thessalonians 2:10 How holily and righteously and unblameably [ως οσιως και δικαιως και αμεμπτως]
Paul calls the Thessalonians and God as witnesses (μαρτυρες — martures) to his life toward you the believers (υμιν τοις πιστευουσιν — humin tois pisteuousin) dative of personal interest. He employs three common adverbs that show how holily toward God and how righteously toward men so that they did not blame him and his associates in either respect. So there is a reason for each adverb. All this argues that Paul spent a considerable time in Thessalonica, more than the three sabbaths mentioned by Luke. The pastor ought to live so that his life will bear close inspection. [source]
1 Thessalonians 2:11 As a father with his own children [ως πατηρ τεκνα εαυτου]
Change from the figure of the mother-nurse in 1 Thessalonians 2:7. There is ellipse of a principal verb with the participles παρακαλουντεσ παραμυτουμενοι μαρτυρουμενοι — parakalountesενουτετουμεν — paramuthoumenoiεγενητημεν — marturoumenoi Lightfoot suggests παρακαλεω — enouthetoumen (we admonished) or egenēthēmen (we became). The three participles give three phases of the minister‘s preaching (exhorting, encouraging or consoling, witnessing or testifying). They are all old verbs, but only the first (parakaleō) is common in the N.T. [source]
1 Thessalonians 5:2 As a thief in the night [ως κλεπτης εν νυκτι]
As a thief at night, suddenly and unexpectedly. Reminiscence of the word of Jesus (Matthew 24:43; Luke 12:39), used also in 2 Peter 3:10; Revelation 3:3; Revelation 16:15. Cometh (ερχεται — erchetai). Prophetic or futuristic present tense. [source]
1 Thessalonians 5:4 As a thief [ως κλεπτης]
As in 1 Thessalonians 5:2, but A B Bohairic have κλεπτας — kleptas (thieves), turning the metaphor round. [source]
2 Thessalonians 2:2 Or by word [ως οτι ενεστηκεν η ημερα του κυριου]
Oral statement of a conversation with Paul (Lightfoot) to this effect as from us. An easy way to set aside Paul‘s first Epistle by report of a private remark from Paul. Or by epistle as from us (ενιστημι — mēte di' epistolēs hōs di' hēmōn). In 1 Thessalonians 4:13-5:3 Paul had plainly said that Jesus would come as a thief in the night and had shown that the dead would not be left out in the rapture. But evidently some one claimed to have a private epistle from Paul which supported the view that Jesus was coming at once, as that the day of the Lord is now present (τα ενεστωτα — hōs hoti enestēken hē hēmera tou kuriou). Perfect active indicative of τα μελλοντα — enistēmi old verb, to place in, but intransitive in this tense to stand in or at or near. So “is imminent” (Lightfoot). The verb is common in the papyri. In 1 Corinthians 3:22; Romans 8:38 we have a contrast between ως οτι — ta enestōta the things present, and ta mellonta the things future (to come). The use of hōs hoti may be disparaging here, though that is not true in 2 Corinthians 5:19. In the Koiné{[28928]}š it comes in the vernacular to mean simply “that” (Moulton, Proleg., p. 212), but that hardly seems the case in the N.T. (Robertson, Grammar, p. 1033). Here it means “to wit that,” though “as that” or “as if” does not miss it much. Certainly it flatly denies that by conversation or by letter he had stated that the second coming was immediately at hand. “It is this misleading assertion that accounts both for the increased discouragement of the faint-hearted to encourage whom Paul writes 1:3-2:17, and for the increased meddlesomeness of the idle brethren to warn whom Paul writes 3:1-18” (Frame). It is enough to give one pause to note Paul‘s indignation over this use of his name by one of the over-zealous advocates of the view that Christ was coming at once. It is true that Paul was still alive, but, if such a “pious fraud” was so common and easily condoned as some today argue, it is difficult to explain Paul‘s evident anger. Moreover, Paul‘s words should make us hesitate to affirm that Paul definitely proclaimed the early return of Jesus. He hoped for it undoubtedly, but he did not specifically proclaim it as so many today assert and accuse him of misleading the early Christians with a false presentation. [source]
2 Thessalonians 3:15 Not as an enemy [μη ως εχτρον]
This is always the problem in such ostracism as discipline, however necessary it is at times. Few things in our churches are more difficult of wise execution than the discipline of erring members. The word εχτρος — echthros is an adjective, hateful, from εχτος — echthos hate. It can be passive, hated, as in Romans 11:28, but is usually active hostile, enemy, foe. [source]
1 Timothy 5:1 The younger men as brethren [νεωτερους ως αδελπους]
Comparative adjective νεωτερος — neōteros from νεος — neos (young). No article, “younger men.” Wise words for the young minister to know how to conduct himself with old men (reverence) and young men (fellowship, but not stooping to folly with them). [source]
1 Timothy 5:2 The elder women as mothers [πρεσβυτερας ως μητερας]
Anarthrous again, “older women as mothers.” Respect and reverence once more. [source]
1 Timothy 5:2 The younger as sisters, in all purity [νεωτερας ως αδελπας εν πασηι αγνιαι]
Anarthrous also and comparative form as in 1 Timothy 5:1. See note on 1 Timothy 4:12 for αγνια — hagnia No sort of behavior will so easily make or mar the young preacher as his conduct with young women. [source]
2 Timothy 2:9 Unto bonds [ως κακουργος]
“Up to bonds.” A common experience with Paul (2 Corinthians 11:23; Philemon 1:7, Philemon 1:13, Philemon 1:14; Colossians 4:18). [source]
2 Timothy 2:17 As doth gangrene [ως γαγγραινα]
Late word (medical writers and Plutarch), only here in N.T. From γραω — graō or γραινω — grainō to gnaw, to eat, an eating, spreading disease. Hymenaeus is probably the one mentioned in 1 Timothy 1:20. Nothing is known of Philetus. [source]
Titus 1:5 As I gave thee charge [ως εγω σοι διεταχαμην]
First aorist (constative) middle imperative of διατασσω — diatassō clear reference to previous personal details given to Titus on previous occasions. [source]
Titus 1:7 As God‘s steward [ως τεου οικονομον]
See note on 1 Corinthians 4:1. for Paul‘s idea of the bishop (elder) as God‘s steward (cf. 1 Corinthians 9:17; Colossians 1:25; Ephesians 3:2; 1 Timothy 1:4). Not self-willed (μη αυταδη — mē authadē). Old word (from αυτοσ ηδομαι — autosοργιλον — hēdomai), self-pleasing, arrogant. In N.T. only here and 2 Peter 2:10. Not soon angry Old adjective from αισχροκερδη — orgē (anger). Here only in N.T. Vulgate, iracundum. For “brawler” and “striker” see note on 1 Timothy 3:2. Not greedy of filthy lucre (απιλαργυρον — aischrokerdē). “Not greedy of shameful gain.” Used of deacons in 1 Timothy 3:8, aphilarguron used of elders in 1 Timothy 3:3. [source]
Philemon 1:14 As of necessity [ως κατα αναγκην]
“As if according to compulsion.” See note on 2 Corinthians 9:7. But of free will (αλλα κατα εκουσιον — alla kata hekousion). According to what is voluntary (Numbers 15:3). Perhaps τροπον — tropon (way, manner) is to be understood with the adjective εκουσιος — hekousios (old word, here alone in N.T.), from εκων — hekōn (1 Corinthians 9:17; Romans 8:20). [source]
Philemon 1:16 No longer as a servant [ουκετι ως δουλον]
“No longer as a slave.” So it has to be here. So it should be always. Paul sends Onesimus, the converted runaway slave, back to his legal master, but shows that he expects Philemon the Christian to treat Onesimus as a brother in Christ, not as a slave. [source]
Philemon 1:17 Receive him as myself [προσλαβου αυτον ως εμε]
“Take him to thyself (indirect second aorist middle of προσλαμβανω — proslambanō as in Acts 18:26) as myself.” Surpassing delicacy and consummate tact. These words sound the death-knell of human slavery wherever the spirit of Christ is allowed to have its way. It has been a long and hard fight to break the shackles of human bondage even in Christian countries and there are still millions of slaves in pagan and Mohammedan lands. Paul wrote these words with wisdom and courage and sincerity. [source]
Hebrews 3:8 As in the provocation [ως ην τωι παραπικρασμωι]
Late compound from παραπικραινω — parapikrainō late verb to embitter Like as in the day (του πειρασμου — kata tēn hēmeran). “According to the day” as in Acts 12:1; Acts 19:23. Of the temptation (tou peirasmou). The reference is to Massah which took place at Rephidim. [source]
Hebrews 3:11 As I sware [ως ωμοσα]
“Correlating the oath and the disobedience” (Vincent). First aorist active indicative of ομνυω — omnuō old verb for solemn oath (Hebrews 6:13). They shall not enter Future middle of εισερχομαι — eiserchomai with ει — ei as an anacoluthon for the Hebrew εις την καταπαυσιν μου — im (not). Really it is a condition of the first class with the conclusion not expressed, common in the lxx as here (Robertson, Grammar, p. 1024). Into my rest Old word from katapauō (Hebrews 4:8), to give rest, in lxx, in N.T. only in Acts 7:49; Heb 3:11-4:11. Primarily the rest in Canaan and then the heavenly rest in which God dwells. [source]
Hebrews 7:9 So to say [ως επος ειπειν]
An old idiom, here only in the N.T., common in Philo, used to limit a startling statement, an infinitive for conceived result with ως — hōs Hath paid tithes Perfect passive indicative of δεκατοω — dekatoō “has been tithed.” This could only be true of Levi “so to speak.” [source]
James 1:10 As the flower of the grass [ως αντος χορτου]
From the lxx (Isa 40:6). Χορτος — Chortos means pasture, then grass (Mark 6:39) or fodder. Αντος — Anthos is old word, in N.T. only here, James 1:11; 1 Peter 1:24 (same quotation). This warning is here applied to “the rich brother,” but it is true of all.He shall pass away (παρελευσεται — pareleusetai). Future middle indicative (effective aoristic future, shall pass completely away from earth). [source]
James 2:9 As transgressors [ως παραβαται]
For this word from παραβαινω — parabainō to step across, to transgress, see Galatians 2:18; Romans 2:25, Romans 2:27. See this very sin of partiality condemned in Leviticus 19:15; Deuteronomy 1:17; Deuteronomy 16:19. To the law and to the testimony. [source]
James 5:3 As fire [ως πυρ]
Editors differ here whether to connect this phrase with παγεται — phagetai just before (as Mayor), for fire eats up more rapidly than rust, or with the following, as Westcott and Hort and Ropes, that is the eternal fire of Gehenna which awaits them (Matthew 25:41; Mark 9:44). This interpretation makes a more vivid picture for ετησαυρισατε — ethēsaurisate (ye have laid up, first aorist active indicative of τησαυριζω — thēsaurizō Matthew 6:19 and see Proverbs 16:27), but it is more natural to take it with παγεται — phagetai f0). [source]
1 Peter 1:14 As children of obedience [ως τεκνα υπακοης]
A common Hebraism (descriptive genitive frequent in lxx and N.T., like υιοι της απειτειας — huioi tēs apeitheias children of disobedience, in Ephesians 2:2) suggested by υπακοην — hupakoēn in 1 Peter 1:2, “children marked by obedience.” [source]
1 Peter 1:19 As of a lamb [ως αμνου]
This word occurs in Leviticus 12:8; Numbers 15:11; Deuteronomy 14:4 of the lamb prescribed for the passover sacrifice (Exodus 12:5). John the Baptist applies it to Jesus (John 1:29, John 1:36). It occurs also in Acts 8:32 quoted from Isaiah 53:7. Undoubtedly both the Baptist and Peter have this passage in mind. Elsewhere in the N.T. αρνιον — arnion is used of Christ (Revelation 5:6, Revelation 5:12). Jesus is the Paschal Lamb. Peter sees clearly that it was by the blood of Christ that we are redeemed from sin.Without blemish (αμωμου — amōmou). Without (alpha privative) spot (μωμος — mōmos) as the paschal lamb had to be (Leviticus 22:21). So Hebrews 9:14.Without spot Without (alpha privative) stain Genitive case with αιματι — haimati but in unusual position for emphasis and clearness with the participles following. [source]
1 Peter 2:2 As newborn babes [ως αρτιγεννητα βρεπη]
ρεπος — Brephos old word, originally unborn child (Luke 1:41-44), then infant (Luke 2:12), here figuratively, like νηπιοι — nēpioi Αρτιγεννητα — Artigennēta is a late and rare compound (Lucian, imperial inscription) from αρτι — arti and γενναω — gennaō with evident allusion to αναγεγεννημενοι — anagegennēmenoi in 1 Peter 1:23, probably meaning that they were recent converts, possibly slight proof that the Epistle written before Romans by Paul (Kuhl). [source]
1 Peter 2:5 Ye also as living stones [και αυτοι ως λιτοι ζωντες]
Peter applies the metaphor about Christ as the living stone to the readers, “ye yourselves also.” [source]
1 Peter 2:11 As sojourners and pilgrims [ως παροικους και παρεπιδημους]
This combination from the lxx (Gen 33:4; Psalm 39:13). See note on 1 Peter 1:1 for παρεπιδημος — parepidēmos and see note on 1 Peter 1:17 for παροικια — paroikia and see note on Ephesians 2:19 for παροικος — paroikos (only there and here in N.T., Christians whose fatherland is heaven). [source]
1 Peter 2:12 As evil-doers [ως κακοποιων]
As they did and do, old word (from κακον — kakon and ποιεω — poieō John 18:30), in N.T. only here and 1 Peter 2:14 in correct text. Heathen talk against us “Out of (as a result of) your good (beautiful) deeds.”Which they behold Present active participle of εποπτευω — epopteuō old verb (from, εποπτης — epoptēs overseer, spectator, 2 Peter 1:16), to be an overseer, to view carefully, in N.T. only here and 1 Peter 3:2.In the day of visitation (εν ημεραι επισκοπης — en hēmerāi episkopēs). From Isaiah 10:33. Cf. its use in Luke 19:44, which see for the word επισκοπη — episkopē (from επισκοπεω — episkopeō to inspect (Hebrews 12:15). Clear echo here of Matthew 5:16. [source]
1 Peter 2:13 As supreme [ως υπερεχοντι]
Dative singular of present active participle of υπερεχω — huperechō old verb (intransitive), to stand out above (to have it over), as in Romans 13:1. It is not the divine right of kings, but the fact of the king as the outstanding ruler. [source]
1 Peter 2:14 As sent by him [ως δι αυτου πεμπομενοις]
Present passive participle of πεμπω — pempō Δι αυτου — Di' autou is “by God,” as Jesus made plain to Pilate; even Pilate received his authority ultimately “from above” (John 18:11).For vengeance on evil-doers (εις εκδικησιν κακοποιων — eis ekdikēsin kakopoiōn). Objective genitive with εκδικησιν — ekdikēsin for which see Luke 18:7.For praise to them that do well Objective genitive again, αγατοποιος — agathopoios a late word (Plutarch, Sirach) from αγατον — agathon and ποιεω — poieō here only in N.T. Found in a magical papyrus. [source]
1 Peter 2:16 As free [ως ελευτεροι]
Note nominative again connected with υποταγητε — hupotagēte in 1 Peter 2:13, not with πιμοιν — phimoin in 1 Peter 2:14 (a parenthesis in fact). For this ethical sense of ελευτερος — eleutheros see Galatians 4:26. [source]
1 Peter 2:16 For a cloke of wickedness [ως επικαλυμμα της κακιας]
Επικαλυμμα — Epikalumma (from επικαλυπτω — epikaluptō Romans 4:7) is a rare word (Aristotle, lxx) for veil, here only in N.T. and in figurative sense for pretext to do wickedness under, a thing, alas, that sometimes happens. [source]
1 Peter 2:16 But as bondservants of God [αλλ ως τεου δουλοι]
Paul‘s proud title. There is no such thing as absolute freedom (personal freedom), for that is anarchy. Cf. Romans 6:22 “enslaved to God.” [source]
1 Peter 2:25 For ye were going astray like sheep [ητε γαρ ως προβατα πλανωμενοι]
Brought from Isaiah 53:6, but changed to periphrastic imperfect indicative with ητε — ēte and present middle participle of πλαναω — planaō to wander away. Recall the words of Jesus in Luke 15:4-7. [source]
1 Peter 3:6 As Sarah [ως Σαρρα]
(ως Σαρρα — hōs Sarra). [source]
1 Peter 3:7 Giving honour unto the woman as unto the weaker vessel [ως αστενεστερωι σκευει τωι γυναικειωι απονεμοντες τιμην]
Present active participle of απονεμω — aponemō old verb, to assign, to portion out (or off), here only in N.T. Σκευος — Skeuos is an old and common word for vessel, furniture, utensil (Matthew 12:29; 2 Timothy 2:20). Here both husband and wife are termed vessels or “parts of the furniture of God‘s house” (Bigg). See Paul‘s use of σκευος — skeuos for ministers (2 Corinthians 4:7). Γυναικειωι — Gunaikeiōi here is an adjective (female, feminine) from γυνη — gunē (woman, wife). She is termed “the weaker” Late double compound found in an Ephesian inscription and the papyri, in N.T. only here, Romans 8:17; Ephesians 3:6; Hebrews 11:9. God‘s gift of life eternal belongs to woman as well as to man. In the eyes of God the wife may be superior to the husband, not merely equal.To the end that your prayers be not hindered Purpose clause with εις το — eis to and the present passive infinitive (with negative μη — mē) of εγκοπτω — egkoptō to cut in, to interrupt, late verb (Polybius), as in Romans 15:22, etc. Very vivid to us now with our telephones and radios when people cut in on us. Προσευχας — Proseuchas (prayers) is the accusative of general reference. Husbands surely have here cause to consider why their prayers are not answered. [source]
1 Peter 4:10 As good stewards [ως καλοι οικονομοι]
For “steward” (οικονομος — oikonomos house-manager) see Luke 16:1; 1 Corinthians 4:1 (used by Paul of himself) and of any bishop (Titus 1:7), but here of any Christian. See καλος — kalos used with διακονος — diakonos in 1 Timothy 4:6. [source]
1 Peter 4:11 Speaking as it were oracles of God [ως λογια τεου]
No predicate in this conclusion of the condition. For λογια τεου — logia theou see Acts 7:38 (Mosaic law); Romans 3:2 (the Old Testament); Hebrews 5:12 (the substance of Christian teaching), here of the utterances of God through Christian teachers. Λογιον — Logion (old word) is a diminutive of λογος — logos (speech, word). It can be construed here as nominative or as accusative. The verb has to be supplied.If any one ministereth (ει τις διακονει — ei tis diakonei). First-class condition again. See Acts 6:2-4 for the twofold division of service involved here.Which God supplieth Ablative case Peter has the compound επιχορηγεω — epichorēgeō in 2 Peter 1:5, 2 Peter 1:11. God is the supplier of strength.That God may be glorified (ινα δοχαζηται ο τεος — hina doxazētai ho theos). Purpose clause with ινα — hina and the present passive subjunctive of δοχαζω — doxazō See John 15:8.Whose is “To whom (dative) is,” that is to Jesus Christ the immediate antecedent, but in Romans 16:27; Judges 1:25 the doxology is to God through Christ. For other doxologies see 1 Peter 5:11; 2 Peter 3:18; Galatians 1:5; Romans 9:5; Romans 11:36; Philemon 4:20; Ephesians 3:21; 1 Timothy 1:17; 1 Timothy 6:16; 2 Timothy 4:18; Hebrews 13:21; Revelation 1:6; Revelation 5:13; Revelation 7:12. The others addressed to Christ are 2 Peter 3:18; 2 Timothy 4:18; Revelation 1:6. [source]
1 Peter 4:12 As though a strange thing happened unto you [ως χενου υμιν συμβαινοντος]
Genitive absolute with ως — hōs giving the alleged reason, and υμιν — humin dative case with συμβαινοντος — sumbainontos (present active participle of συμβαινω — sumbainō to go together, to happen (Mark 10:32), agreeing with χενου — xenou (strange, Hebrews 13:9). [source]
1 Peter 4:16 But if as a Christian [ει δε ως Χριστιανος]
Supply the verb πασχει — paschei (condition of first class, “if one suffer as a Christian”). This word occurs only three times in the N.T. (Acts 11:26; Acts 26:28; 1 Peter 4:16). It is word of Latin formation coined to distinguish followers of Christ from Jews and Gentiles (Acts 11:26). Each instance bears that idea. It is not the usual term at first like ματηται — mathētai (disciples), saints By a.d. 64 the name Christian was in common use in Rome (Tacitus, Ann. XV. 44). Owing to itacism it was sometimes spelled Χρηστιανοι — Chrēstianoi (ι ει — iη — ei and μη αισχυνεστω — ē pronounced alike). [source]
1 Peter 4:15 As [ως]
Charged as and being so. Two specific crimes (murderer, thief) and one general phrase Note η ως — ē hōs (or as) = or “also only as” (Wohlenberg). The word was apparently coined by Peter (occurring elsewhere only in Dionys. Areop. and late eccles. writers) from αλλοτριος — allotrios (belonging to another, 2 Corinthians 10:15) and επισκοπος — episkopos overseer, inspector, 1 Peter 2:25). The idea is apparently one who spies out the affairs of other men. Deissmann (Bible Studies, p. 224) gives a second-century papyrus with αλλοτριων επιτυμητης — allotriōn epithumētēs a speculator alienorum. Epictetus has a like idea (iii. 22. 97). Biggs takes it to refer to “things forbidden.” Clement of Alexandria tells of a disciple of the Apostle John who became a bandit chief. Ramsay (Church in the Roman Empire, pp. 293, 348) thinks the word refers to breaking up family relationships. Hart refers us to the gadders-about in 1 Thessalonians 4:11; 2 Thessalonians 3:11 and women as gossipers in 1 Thessalonians 5:13. It is interesting to note also that επισκοπος — episkopos here is the word for “bishop” and so suggests also preachers meddling in the work of other preachers. [source]
1 Peter 5:8 Whom he may devour [ως ωρυομενος λεων]
Second aorist active infinitive of ωρυομαι — katapinō to drink down. B does not have καταπιειν — tina Aleph has καταπινω — tina (somebody), “to devour some one,” while A has interrogative τινα — tina “whom he may devour” (very rare idiom). But the devil‘s purpose is the ruin of men. He is a “peripatetic” (τινα — peripatei) like the peripatetic philosophers who walked as they talked. Satan wants all of us and sifts us all (Luke 22:31). [source]
1 Peter 5:12 As I account him [ως λογιζομαι]
Peter uses Paul‘s phrase (1 Corinthians 4:1; Romans 8:18) in giving approval to Paul‘s former companion (Acts 15:40).I have written (εγραπσα — egrapsa). Epistolary aorist applying to this Epistle as in 1 Corinthians 5:11 (not 1 Corinthians 5:9); 1 Corinthians 9:15; Galatians 6:11; Romans 15:15; Philemon 1:19, Philemon 1:21.Briefly “By few words,” as Peter looked at it, certainly not a long letter in fact. Cf. Hebrews 13:22.Testifying (επιμαρτυρων — epimarturōn). Present active participle of επιμαρτυρεω — epimartureō to bear witness to, old compound, here alone in N.T., though the double compound συνεπιμαρτυρεω — sunepimartureō in Hebrews 2:4.That this is the true grace of God Infinitive ειναι — einai in indirect assertion and accusative of general reference “In which (grace) take your stand” (ingressive aorist active imperative of ιστημι — histēmi). [source]
2 Peter 1:3 Seeing that his divine power hath granted unto us [ως ημιν της τειας δυναμεως αυτου δεδωρημενης]
Genitive absolute with the causal particle ως — hōs and the perfect middle participle of δωρεω — dōreō old verb, to bestow Τειος — Theios (from τεος — theos) is an old adjective in N.T. here and 2 Peter 1:4 only, except Acts 17:29, where Paul uses το τειον — to theion for deity, thus adapting his language to his audience as the papyri and inscriptions show. The use of τειος — theios with an imperial connotation is very common in the papyri and the inscriptions. Deissmann (Bible Studies, pp. 360-368) has shown the singular linguistic likeness between 2 Peter 1:3-11 and a remarkable inscription of the inhabitants of Stratonicea in Caria to Zeus Panhemerios and Hecate dated a.d. 22 (in full in C I H ii No. 2715 a b). One of the likenesses is the use of της τειας δυναμεως — tēs theias dunameōs Peter may have read this inscription (cf. Paul in Athens) or he may have used “the familiar forms and formulae of religious emotion” (Deissmann), “the official liturgical language of Asia Minor.” Peter is fond of δυναμις — dunamis in this Epistle, and the δυναμις — dunamis of Christ “is the sword which St. Peter holds over the head of the False Teachers” (Bigg).

2 Peter 1:19 As unto a lamp [ως λυχνωι]
Dative also after προσεχοντες — prosechontes of λυχνος — luchnos old word (Matthew 5:15). [source]
2 Peter 3:10 As a thief [ως κλεπτης]
That is suddenly, without notice. This very metaphor Jesus had used (Luke 12:39; Matthew 24:43) and Paul after him (1 Thessalonians 5:2) and John will quote it also (Revelation 3:3; Revelation 16:15).In the which (εν ηι — en hēi). The day when the Lord comes.Shall pass away Future middle of παρερχομαι — parerchomai old verb, to pass by.With a great noise (ροιζηδον — roizēdon). Late and rare adverb (from ροιζεω ροιζος — roizeōτα στοιχεια — roizos) - Lycophron, Nicander, here only in N.T., onomatopoetic, whizzing sound of rapid motion through the air like the flight of a bird, thunder, fierce flame.The elements Old word (from λυτησεται — stoichos a row), in Plato in this sense, in other senses also in N.T. as the alphabet, ceremonial regulations (Hebrews 5:12; Galatians 4:3; Galatians 5:1; Colossians 2:8).Shall be dissolved (λυω — luthēsetai). Future passive of στοιχεια — luō to loosen, singular because καυσουμενα — stoicheia is neuter plural.With fervent heat Present passive participle of καυσος — kausoō late verb (from καυσομενα — kausos usually medical term for fever) and nearly always employed for fever temperature. Mayor suggests a conflagration from internal heat. Bigg thinks it merely a vernacular (Doric) future for καιω — kausomena (from κατακαησεται — kaiō to burn).Shall be burned up (κατακαιω — katakaēsetai). Repeated in 2 Peter 3:12. Second future passive of the compound verb ευρετησεται — katakaiō to burn down (up), according to A L. But Aleph B K P read ευρισκω — heurethēsetai (future passive of heuriskō to find) “shall be found.” There are various other readings here. The text seems corrupt. [source]
2 Peter 3:16 As also in all his epistles [ως και εν πασαις επιστολαις]
We do not know to how many Peter here refers. There is no difficulty in supposing that Peter “received every one of St. Paul‘s Epistles within a month or two of its publication” (Bigg). And yet Peter does not here assert the formation of a canon of Paul‘s Epistles. [source]
1 John 1:7 As he [ως αυτος]
As God is light (1 John 1:5) and dwells in light unapproachable (1 Timothy 6:16).One with another (μετ αλληλων — met' allēlōn). As he has already said in 1 John 1:3. But we cannot have fellowship with one another unless we have it with God in Christ, and to do that we must walk in the light with God.And the blood of Jesus his Son cleanseth us from all sin This clause with και — kai in true Johannine style is coordinate with the preceding one. Walking in the light with God makes possible fellowship with one another and is made possible also by the blood of Jesus (real blood and no mere phantom, atoning blood of the sinless Son of God for our sins). John is not ashamed to use this word. It is not the mere “example” of Jesus that “cleanses” us from sin. It does cleanse the conscience and life and nothing else does (Hebrews 9:13.; Titus 2:14). See in 1 John 1:9 both forgiveness and cleansing. Cf. 1 John 3:3. [source]
2 John 1:5 As though I wrote [ως γραπων]
Common idiom ως — hōs with the participle (present active) for the alleged reason. [source]

So in Revelation 4:1 referring to this. [source]
Revelation 1:14 As white wool [ως εριον λευκον]
Εριον — Erion (wool) in N.T. only here and Hebrews 9:19, though old word. The person of the Lord Jesus is here described in language largely from Daniel 7:9 (the Ancient of Days). [source]
Revelation 1:14 White as snow [ως χιων]
Just “as snow,” also in Daniel 7:9. In N.T. only here and Matthew 28:3.As a flame of fire (ως πλοχ πυρος — hōs phlox puros). In Daniel 7:9 the throne of the Ancient of Days is πλοχ πυρος — phlox puros while in Daniel 10:6 the eyes of the Ancient of Days are λαμπαδες πυρος — lampades puros (lamps of fire). See also Revelation 2:18; Revelation 19:12 for this bold metaphor (like Hebrews 1:7). [source]
Revelation 1:14 As a flame of fire [ως πλοχ πυρος]
In Daniel 7:9 the throne of the Ancient of Days is πλοχ πυρος — phlox puros while in Daniel 10:6 the eyes of the Ancient of Days are λαμπαδες πυρος — lampades puros (lamps of fire). See also Revelation 2:18; Revelation 19:12 for this bold metaphor (like Hebrews 1:7). [source]
Revelation 1:15 As the voice of many waters [ως πωνη υδατων πολλων]
So the voice of God in the Hebrew (not the lxx) of Ezekiel 43:2. Repeated in Revelation 14:2; Revelation 19:6. [source]
Revelation 1:15 As if it had been refined [ως πεπυρομενης]
Perfect passive participle of πυροω — puroō old verb, to set on fire, to glow, as in Ephesians 6:16; Revelation 3:18. The feminine gender shows that η χαλκολιβανος — hē chalkolibanos is referred to with της χαλκολιβανου — tēs chalkolibanou understood, for it does not agree in case with the associative-instrumental χαλκολιβανωι — chalkolibanōi just before. Some would call it a slip for πεπυρομενωι — pepuromenōi as Aleph, and some cursives have it (taking χαλκολιβανωι — chalkolibanōi to be neuter, not feminine). But P Q read πεπυρωμενοι — pepurōmenoi (masculine plural), a correction, making it agree in number and gender with ποδες — podes (feet).In a furnace (εν καμινωι — en kaminōi). Old word, in N.T. also Revelation 9:2; Matthew 13:42, Matthew 13:50.As the voice of many waters So the voice of God in the Hebrew (not the lxx) of Ezekiel 43:2. Repeated in Revelation 14:2; Revelation 19:6. [source]
Revelation 2:18 His eyes like a flame of fire [τους οπταλμους αυτου ως πλογα πυρος]
As in Revelation 1:14. [source]
Revelation 1:16 As the sun shineth [ως ο ηλιος παινει]
Brachylogy, “as the sun when it shines.” For παινει — phainei see John 1:5. [source]
Revelation 2:24 As they say [ως λεγουσιν]
Probably referring to the heretics who ridicule the piety of the other Christians. [source]
Revelation 3:3 As a thief [ως κλεπτης]
As Jesus had already said (Matthew 24:43; Luke 12:39), as Paul had said (1 Thessalonians 5:2), as Peter had said (2 Peter 3:10), as Jesus will say again (Revelation 16:15). [source]
Revelation 3:21 As I also overcame [ως καγω ενικησα]
First aorist active indicative of νικαω — nikaō looking back on the victory as over in the past. In John 16:33 before the Cross Jesus says Εγω νενικηκα τον κοσμον — Egō nenikēka ton kosmon (perfect active), emphasizing the abiding effect of the victory. [source]
Revelation 4:6 As it were a glassy sea [ως ταλασσα υαλινη]
Old adjective (from υαλος — hualos glass, Revelation 21:18, Revelation 21:21), in N.T. only here and Revelation 15:2. Possibly from υει — huei (it rains), like a raindrop. At any rate here it is the appearance, not the material. Glass was made in Egypt 4,000 years ago. In Exodus 24:10 the elders see under the feet of God in the theophany a paved work of sapphire stone (cf. Ezekiel 1:26). The likeness of the appearance of sky to sea suggests the metaphor here (Beckwith). [source]
Revelation 4:7 A face as of a man [προσωπον ως αντρωπου]
Shows that the likeness in each instance extended only to the face. [source]
Revelation 5:6 As though it had been slain [ως εσπαγμενον]

The Christ as the Lamb is both sacrifice and Priest (Hebrews 9:12.; Hebrews 10:11). [source]
Revelation 6:6 As it were a voice [ως πωνην]
“This use of ως — hōs giving a certain vagueness or mysteriousness to a phrase, is one of the characteristics of the writer‘s style, e.g., Revelation 8:1; Revelation 14:3; Revelation 19:1, Revelation 19:6 ” (Beckwith). This voice comes from the midst of the four living creatures, “the protest of nature against the horrors of famine” (Swete). [source]
Revelation 6:12 As blood [ως αιμα]
In Acts 2:20 we find Peter interpreting the apocalyptic eschatological language of Joel 2:31 about the sun being turned into darkness and the moon into blood as pointing to the events of the day of Pentecost as also “the great day of the Lord.” Peter‘s interpretation of Joel should make us cautious about too literal an exegesis of these grand symbols. [source]
Revelation 6:12 As sackcloth of hair [ως σακκος τριχινος]
Σακκος — Sakkos (Attic σακος — sakos), Latin saccus, English sack, originally a bag for holding things (Genesis 42:25, Genesis 42:35), then coarse garment of hair Here the hair is that of the black goat (Isaiah 50:3). Cf. Joel 2:10; Ezekiel 32:7.; Isaiah 13:10; Mark 13:24. See Ecclesiastes 12:2 for eclipses treated as symbols of old age. Apocalyptic pictures all have celestial phenomena following earthquakes.As blood (ως αιμα — hōs haima). In Acts 2:20 we find Peter interpreting the apocalyptic eschatological language of Joel 2:31 about the sun being turned into darkness and the moon into blood as pointing to the events of the day of Pentecost as also “the great day of the Lord.” Peter‘s interpretation of Joel should make us cautious about too literal an exegesis of these grand symbols.

Revelation 6:14 As a scroll when it is rolled up [ως βιβλιον ελισσομενον]
Present passive participle of ελισσω — helissō old verb, to roll up, in N.T. only here (from Isaiah 34:4) and Hebrews 1:12 (from Psalm 102:27). Vivid picture of the expanse of the sky rolled up and away as a papyrus roll (Luke 4:17).Were moved (εκινητησαν — ekinēthēsan). First aorist passive indicative of κινεω — kineō to move.Out of their places See also Revelation 16:20 for these violent displacements in the earth‘s crust. Cf. Nahum 1:5; Jeremiah 4:24.

Revelation 9:2 As the smoke of a great furnace [ως καπνος καμινου μεγαλης]

First aorist passive indicative of σκοτοω — skotoō old causative verb from σκοτος — skotos in N.T. only here, Revelation 16:10; Ephesians 4:18.By reason of “Out of,” as a result of (Revelation 8:13). [source]
Revelation 9:7 As men‘s faces [ως προσωπα αντρωπων]
Human-looking faces in these demonic locusts to give added terror, “suggesting the intelligence and capacity of man” (Swete). Vincent actually sees “a distinct resemblance to the human countenance in the face of the locust.” [source]
Revelation 9:8 As the teeth of lions [ως λεοντων]
Supply οι οδοντες — hoi odontes (the teeth) before λεοντων — leontōn See Joel 1:6. The locust is voracious. [source]
Revelation 9:9 As it were breastplates of iron [ως τωρακας σιδερους]
The τωραχ — thōrax was originally the breast (from the neck to the navel), then the breastplate, only N.T. usage (Revelation 9:9, Revelation 9:17; 1 Thessalonians 5:8; Ephesians 6:14). The armour for the breastplate was usually of iron However, the scaly backs and flanks of the locusts do resemble coats of mail. “The locusts of the Abyss may be the memories of the past brought home at times of Divine visitation” (Swete). [source]
Revelation 9:9 As the sound of chariots, of many horses rushing to war [ως πωνη αρματων ιππων πολλων τρεχοντων εις πολεμον]
Both metaphors here, the clatter and clangour of the chariot wheels and the prancing of the horses are found in Joel 2:4. Τρεχοντων — Trechontōn is present active predicate participle of τρεχω — trechō to run. Cf. 2 Kings 7:6; Jeremiah 47:3. [source]
Revelation 9:17 As the heads of lions [ως κεπαλαι λεοντων]
This of the horses, war-horses as always in the Bible except in Isaiah 28:28. These horses likewise have “fire and smoke and brimstone” (τειον — theion brimstone, is old word, in N.T. only in Rev and Luke 17:29) proceeding (εκπορευεται — ekporeuetai singular because it comes first and the subjects afterwards) out of their mouths. Both rider and horse are terrible. [source]
Revelation 10:1 As the sun [ως ο ηλιος]
The very metaphor applied to Christ in Revelation 1:16. [source]
Revelation 10:1 As pillars of fire [ως στυλοι πυρος]
Somewhat like the metaphor of Christ in Revelation 1:15, but still no proof that this angel is Christ. On στυλος — stulos see Revelation 3:12; Galatians 2:9. [source]
Revelation 10:7 According to the good tidings which he declared [ως ευηγγελισεν]
“As he gospelized to,” first aorist active indicative of ευαγγελιζω — euaggelizō a rare use of the active as in Revelation 14:6 with the accusative. See the middle so used in Galatians 1:9; 1 Peter 1:12. See Amos 3:7; Jeremiah 7:25; Jeremiah 25:4 for this idea in the O.T. prophets who hoped for a cleaning up of all mysteries in the last days. [source]
Revelation 10:9 Sweet as honey [γλυκυ ως μελι]
For the sweetness of the roll see Psalm 19:10.; Psalm 119:103. “Every revelation of God‘s purposes, even though a mere fragment, a βιβλαριδιον — biblaridion is ‹bitter-sweet,‘ disclosing judgment as well as mercy” (Swete). Deep and bitter sorrows confront John as he comes to understand God‘s will and way. [source]
Revelation 12:15 Water as a flood [υδωρ ως ποταμον]
“Water as a river,” accusative case after εβαλεν — ebalen (cast). The serpent could not follow the woman or stop her flight and so sought to drown her. [source]
Revelation 13:3 As though it had been smitten [ως εσπαγμενην]
Perfect passive participle of σπαζω — sphazō as in Revelation 5:6, accusative singular agreeing with μιαν — mian (one of the heads), object of ειδον — eidon understood, “as though slain” (so the word means in seven other instances in the book). There is a reference to the death and new life of the Lamb in Revelation 5:6.And his death-stroke was healed (και η πληγη αυτου ετεραπευτη — kai hē plēgē autou etherapeuthē). First aorist passive indicative of τεραπευω — therapeuō “The stroke of death” (that led to death). Apparently refers to the death of Nero in June 68 a.d. by his own hand. But after his death pretenders arose claiming to be Nero redivivus even as late as 89 (Tacitus, Hist. i. 78, ii. 8, etc.). John seems to regard Domitian as Nero over again in the persecutions carried on by him. The distinction is not always preserved between the beast (Roman Empire) and the seven heads (emperors), but in Revelation 17:10 the beast survives the loss of five heads. Here it is the death-stroke of one head, while in Revelation 13:12, Revelation 13:14 the beast himself receives a mortal wound.Wondered after the beast First aorist passive (deponent) indicative of ταυμαζω — thaumazō to wonder at, to admire, as in Revelation 17:8. For this pregnant use of οπισω — opisō see John 12:9; Acts 5:37; Acts 20:30; 1 Timothy 5:15. “All the earth wondered at and followed after the beast,” that is Antichrist as represented by Domitian as Nero redivivus. But Charles champions the view that Caligula, not Nero, is the head that received the death-stroke and recovered and set up statues of himself for worship, even trying to do it in Jerusalem. [source]
Revelation 14:2 As a voice of many waters [ως πωνην υδατων πολλων]
For which see Revelation 1:15. [source]
Revelation 15:2 As it were a glassy sea [ως ταλασσαν υαλινην]
Accusative case after ειδον — eidon and ως — hōs here, not in Revelation 4:6, which see for the symbol. [source]
Revelation 16:3 Blood as of a dead man [αιμα ως νεκρου]
At the trumpet (Revelation 8:11) the water becomes wormwood. Here ως νεκρου — hōs nekrou is added to Exodus 7:14-24, “the picture of a murdered man weltering in his blood” (Swete). “Coagulated blood, fatal to animal life” (Moffatt).Every living soul (πασα πσυχη ζωης — pāsa psuchē zōēs). “Every soul of life” (Hebraism, Genesis 1:21, marked by life).Even the things that were in the sea “The things in the sea,” in apposition with πσυχη — psuchē Complete destruction, not partial as in Revelation 8:9. [source]
Revelation 16:13 As it were frogs [ως βατραχοι]

Revelation 16:15 Behold, I come as a thief [ιδου ερχομαι ως κλεπτης]

There comes one of seven beatitudes in Rev (Revelation 1:3; Revelation 14:13; Revelation 16:15; Revelation 19:9; Revelation 20:6; Revelation 22:7, Revelation 22:14). For γρηγορων — grēgorōn (watching) see Revelation 3:2, and for τηρων — tērōn (keeping), Revelation 1:3. [source]
Revelation 16:21 Every stone about the weight of a talent [ως ταλαντιαια]
Old adjective (from ταλαντον — talanton), here only in N.T., but in Polybius and Josephus. See Exodus 9:24 for the great hail in Egypt and also Joshua 10:11; Isaiah 28:2; Ezekiel 38:22 for hail as the symbol of God‘s wrath. In the lxx a ταλαντον — talanton ranged in weight from 108 to 130 pounds.Because of the plague of hail (εκ της πληγης της χαλαζης — ek tēs plēgēs tēs chalazēs). “As a result of the plague of hail.” This punishment had the same effect as in Revelation 16:9, Revelation 16:11.Exceeding great Emphatic positions at ends of the clause (great - exceedingly). [source]
Revelation 17:12 As kings [ως βασιλεις]
Compared to kings (see ως — hōs in Revelation 1:10; Revelation 4:6; Revelation 9:7; Revelation 13:3; Revelation 14:3; Revelation 16:21) without identification with the emperors, though succeeding them with “quasi-imperial powers” with the beast.For one hour (μιαν ωραν — mian hōran). Accusative of extent of time, and that a brief time (Revelation 18:10, Revelation 18:16, Revelation 18:19) in comparison with the beast (Revelation 13:2). [source]
Revelation 18:6 Render as she rendered [αποδοτε ως απεδωκεν]

(Jeremiah 50:15, Jeremiah 50:29; Jeremiah 51:24, Jeremiah 51:56; Psalm 137:8), and in the N.T. also (Matthew 7:2). Here the reference is to persecutions by Rome, particularly the martyrdom of the saints (Revelation 18:24; Revelation 19:2). [source]
Revelation 19:6 As it were the voice [ως πωνην]
Used here three times, as once in Revelation 19:1: once of a second great multitude (οχλου πολλου — ochlou pollou), not of angels as in Revelation 19:1, but the innumerable multitude of the redeemed of Revelation 7:9; then “of many waters” (υδατων πολλων — hudatōn pollōn) as in Revelation 1:15; Revelation 14:2 like “the roar of a cataract” (Swete); and once more “the voice of mighty thunders” (βροντων ισχυρων — brontōn ischurōn) as in Revelation 6:1; Revelation 10:3. [source]
Revelation 21:2 As a bride adorned [ως νυμπην κεκοσμημενην]
Perfect passive participle of κοσμεω — kosmeō old verb (from κοσμος — kosmos ornament like our cosmetics), as in Revelation 21:19. Only here the figure of bride is not the people of God as in Revelation 19:7, but the abode of the people of God (the New Jerusalem).For her husband (τωι ανδρι αυτης — tōi andri autēs). Dative case of personal interest. [source]
Revelation 21:11 As it were a jasper stone [ως λιτωι ιασπιδι]
