Verse 6

7:6 lest (b-17) See ch. 5.25 and Mark 4:12 .

Verse 7

7:7 Ask (c-1) Aiteo , used for supplication. see Note, John 14:16 .

Verse 14

7:14 narrow (d-2) Or 'how narrow.'

Verse 16

7:16 know (a-6) 'Recognize,' 'know well,' as in ch. 11.27.

Verse 20

7:20 know (a-8) 'Recognize,' 'know well,' as in ch. 11.27. surely (b-5) i.e. as a necessary consequence.
