Darby's Synopsis of the New Testament

Matthew 12

1:11 away (a-14) In those days conquerors transported conquered nations to distant seats, and replaced them by others, that national feeling might not subsist, but dependence be complete. 'Carrying away' is feeble for this, but I know no other word.

Verse 7

12:7 is. (e-7) See ch. 9.13.

Verse 9

12:9 away (f-3) The Greek always implies a change of place -- leaving one and going to another, as chs. 15.29; 17.20, 'transported.'

Verse 15

12:15 knowing (a-3) Ginosko , ver. 15, objective knowledge. In ver. 25 it is Oida , conscious knowledge. See Note, 1 Corinthians 8:1 .

Verse 17

12:17 saying, (b-13) Isaiah 42:1-4 .

Verse 20

12:20 forth (c-18) The word is the same here as 'brings forth,' ver. 35, and 'brings out,' ch. 13.52. It signifies 'putting forth' as much as 'bringing forth.' It means that judgment was hid, and 'shut up among his treasures' (see Deuteronomy 32:34 ), and in due time it will be produced, without saying he brings it with him, or sends it without coming. It is brought out and displayed in its time. unto (d-20) Eis . it directs the mind to the point to be reached.

Verse 24

12:24 by (e-16) En , lit. 'in the power of.' see Note c, ch. 3.11.

Verse 25

12:25 knowing (a-3) Ginosko , ver. 15, objective knowledge. In ver. 25 it is Oida , conscious knowledge. See Note, 1 Corinthians 8:1 .

Verse 35

12:35 forth (a-10) See Note, ver. 20.

Verse 36

12:36 of (b-19) See Note d, 1 Peter 3:15 .

Verse 41

12:41 Ninevites (c-1) Lit. 'men Ninevites.' preaching (d-20) Lit. 'heralding,' as Romans 16:25 .
