   Additional Information: Wigram’s frequency count is 1770 not 1773.
   “For” (as used in Acts 2:38 “for the forgiveness …”) could have two meanings.
   If you saw a poster saying “Jesse James wanted for robbery”, “for” could mean Jesse is wanted so he can commit a robbery, or is wanted because he has committed a robbery.
   The later sense is the correct one.
   So too in this passage, the word “for” signifies an action in the past.
   Otherwise, it would violate the entire tenor of the NT teaching on salvation by grace and not by works.

Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - About
* Besides prepositions, the following signify "about":--
A — 1: κυκλόθεν (Strong's #2943 — Adverb — kuklothen — koo-kloth'-en ) "round about, or all round" (from kuklos, "a circle, cycle"), is found in the Apocalypse only, 4:3,4,8.
A — 2: κύκλῳ (Strong's #2945 — Adverb — kuklo — koo'-klo ) the dative case of kuklos (see above), means "round about," lit., "in a circle." It is used in the same way as No. 1, Mark 3:34 ; 6:6,36 ; Luke 9:12 ; Romans 15:19 ; Revelation 4:6 ; 5:11 ; 7:11 .
A — 3: πού (Strong's #4225 — Adverb — pou — poo ) an indefinite particle, signifying "somewhere, somewhere about, nearly," has a limiting force, with numerals, e.g., Romans 4:19 . In referring to a passage in the OT, it is translated "somewhere," in the RV of Hebrews 2:6 ; 4:4 (AV, "in a certain place"); by not mentioning the actual passage referred to, the writer acknowledged the familiar acquaintance of his readers with the OT. See PLACE.
A — 4: ὡς (Strong's #5613 — Adverb — hos — hoce ) usually means "as." Used with numerals it signifies "about," e.g., Mark 5:13 ; 8:9 John 1:40 ; 6:19 ; 11:18 ; Acts 1:15 ; Revelation 8:1 .
A — 5: ὡσεί (Strong's #5616 — Adverb — hosei — ho-si' ) "as if," before numerals, denotes "about, nearly, something like," with perhaps an indication of greater indefiniteness than No. 4, e.g., Matthew 14:21 ; Luke 3:23 ; 9:14,28 ; Acts 2:41 ; with a measure of space, Luke 22:41 , "about a stone's cast." See LIKE.
B — 1: μέλλω (Strong's #3195 — Verb — mello — mel'-lo ) signifies (a) "of intention, to be about to do something," e.g., Acts 3:3 ; 18:14 ; 20:3 ; Hebrews 8:5 ; (b) "of certainty, compulsion or necessity, to be certain to act," e.g., John 6:71 . See ALMOST , BEGIN , COME , INTEND , MEAN , MIND , POINT OF (at), READY , SHALL , SHOULD , TARRY.
Note: Zeteo, "to seek," is translated "were about" in the AV of Acts 27:30 ; RV, correctly, "were seeking to."

About a bow-shot from hence you pass by the place which they say was Mary Magdalene's house; and thence descending a steep hill, you come to the fountain of the Apostles, which is so called because, as the tradition goes, these holy persons were wont to refresh themselves there between Jerusalem and Jericho,—as it is very probable they might, because the fountain is close to the roadside, and is inviting to the thirsty traveller

Leaven - Mark (8:11-15) presents Jesus' warning following the Pharisees' questioning of Jesus About a sign from heaven. In the boat Jesus warns them About leaven, really meaning the attitude or perspective of the Pharisees and Herod.

Matthew records that Jesus' response to the questioning of the Pharisees and Sadducees included some symbolic discussion About weather and a reference to "the sign of Jonah" (v. ...
Luke (12:1-12) presents Jesus' warning About leaven in the context of his large central section on Jesus' teaching journey to Jerusalem (9:51-19:44).

Kerygma - In this large passage Paul is explaining his gospel in contrast to the influence of the Jews who are concerned About signs and of the Greeks who are concerned About wisdom. Then comes the crucial assertion in 1:21 that God is saving those who believe through the kerygma—the message About Jesus' death and resurrection, which from the viewpoint of the world is foolishness. For Paul kerygma is the gospel or the proclamation of the death of Christ to bring About the salvation of all those who believe. Verses 1-5 of chapter 2 explain that belief in the message comes About not by human wisdom or eloquence, but by means of the demonstration and power of the Spirit. The interchangeability of kerygma and gospel in this passage brings out unmistakably that the kerygma is the gospel message About Christ's death and resurrection. Probably the conjunction "and" ( kai [1]) would be better translated "that is, " which would show that by proclamation Paul means the gospel or message About Christ. Thus, even though the word "kerygma" occurs only in the closing doxology, Romans in fact is Paul's own masterful development of his earlier definition of kerygma in 1Corinthians, which was written About two years before Romans. " The use of "words" ( logois ) at the end of verse 15 further strengthens the understanding that kerygma in verse 17 does refer to the gospel or message About Jesus' death and resurrection. ...
The meaning of kerygma all six times that Paul uses this term is consistently the message About Jesus, the content of the gospel Paul so courageously proclaimed throughout his ministry

Wall - ”Chômâh occurs About 120 times in the Hebrew Bible. There was also another possibility during a siege: “And the city was broken up, and all the men of war fled by night by the way of the gate between two walls, which is by the king’s garden: (now the Chaldees were against the city round About:) …” (2 Kings 25:4). The goal was to force a breach wide enough for the troops to enter into the city; “And Jehoash king of Israel took Amaziah king of Judah, the son of Jehoash the son of Ahaziah, at Beth-shemesh, and came to Jerusalem, and brake down the wall of Jerusalem from the gate of Ephraim unto the corner gate, four hundred cubits [1]” (2 Kings 14:13). For this reason Nehemiah had to help his unsuccessful compatriots to rebuild the “wall” About 135 years later: “Then said I unto them, Ye see the distress that we are in, how Jerusalem lieth waste, and the gates thereof are burned with fire: come, and let us build up the wall of Jerusalem, that we be no more a reproach” ( About, and in the man’s hand a measuring reed of six cubits long by the cubit and a handbreadth: so he measured the breadth of the building, one reed; and the height, one reed” ( Christ the King, Feast of - Iesu Christi universorum Regis...

Star of the Magi - Some have held that it was a comet [1], and if such a comet as Donati’s of 1858, which the present writer remembers well, had been visible at the time of the Nativity, it would have fulfilled the conditions of the narrative, and the difficulties About the star standing over ‘where the young child was’ ( Matthew 2:9 ) would have been lessened. ’ But we may take it that the language here is of the same character as that which we constantly use About the sun or moon rising and setting. The place in the heavens of any fixed star varies only About one degree, or four minutes, each succeeding day. ...
A somewhat more difficult question than that About the appearance of the star is, Why did the wise men connect it with the birth of a king of the Jews? The traditional answer to this question is that there had been handed down from generation to generation among the wise men of Babylon a knowledge of Balaam’s prophecy, ‘There shall come forth a star out of Jacob’ (Numbers 24:17 ), and that, when this notable star appeared, it was considered to be the herald of the appearance of a great person. There is this difficulty, however, About referring the ‘star’ of Balaam’s prophecy to a phenomenon in the heavens, that from the parallelism of the Hebrew poetry we gather that the ‘star’ is intended to refer not to a star in the sky, but to some great prince or ruler (cf. There was a great ferment in the East and a wide-spread anticipation, even in the Roman world, of some great Saviour or deliverer to arise, as the poets Virgil and Horace testify, just About the time when the Saviour was born
