1:2 up; (a-21) The word means 'receiving,' but with the prefix ( ana ) 'up,' as here, it has the active sense of 'taking up.' It is so translated except in 1 Timothy 3:16 . The more passive reception is seen in Acts 3:21 , where another word is used.

The torturing of the passage by copyists arose, I believe, from not seeing, the real sense of it; a touching expression of the love of God.
20:35 shewed (d-3) Specially, 'to show by example.'
20:37 kissed (e-15) 'Covered with kisses,' as Luke 15:20 .
