Rutherford on Babrius 11,9)); with an accusative of place, to visit, go to: Acts 19:21. (Synonyms: 'When , are called momentary preterites, it must not be supposed that thereby a quickly-past action is designated; these forms merely present the action without reference to its duration ... The unaugmented moods, too, are not exclusively past, but present or future as well — the last most decidedly in the imperative. Now it is obvious that when a perception is stated without regard to its duration, its form or mode cannot have prominence; hence is much less physical than . denotes to perceive with the eyes; (which see), on the other hand, to see, i. e. it marks the use and action of the eye as the principal thing. Perception as denoted by when conceived of as completed, permits the sensuous element to be forgotten and abides merely as an activity of the soul; for , , signifies not to have seen, but to know Schmidt, chapter 11. Compare: , , , )
