2. Neuter μόνον as adverb, alone, only, merely: added to the object, Matthew 5:47; Matthew 10:42; Acts 18:25; Galatians 3:2; to the genitive Romans 3:29 (here WH marginal reading μόνων); referring to an action expressed by a verb, Matthew 9:21; Matthew 14:36; Mark 5:36; Luke 8:50; Acts 8:16; 1 Corinthians 15:19; Galatians 1:23; Galatians 2:10. μόνον μή, Galatians 5:13; οὐ (μή) μόνον, Galatians 4:18; James 1:22; James 2:24; followed by ἀλλά, Acts 19:26 ( L ἀλλά καί; cf. Winer s Grammar, 498 (464); Buttmann, 370 (317)); by ἀλλά πολλῷ μᾶλλον, Philippians 2:12; by ἀλλά καί, Matthew 21:21; John 5:18; John 11:52; John 12:9; John 13:9; John 17:20; Acts 19:26 (Lachmann (see as above, especially Buttmann)); Acts 21:13; 26:29; 27:10>; Romans 1:32; Romans 4:12,16, 23; 2 Corinthians 7:7, etc.; οὐ μόνον δέ ἀλλά καί: Acts 19:27; and often by Paul (cf.
