1:1 place; (b-19) Aorist, lit. 'have taken place,' perhaps 'be accomplished.' signified (c-22) * Lit. 'made known by signs.'

Verse 3

4:3 round (e-20) I use 'round' for what is connected with anything (not necessarily united to it) as a centre, as the tire of a wheel, but 'around' is used for detached objects encircling.

4:4 round (e-2) I use 'round' for what is connected with anything (not necessarily united to it) as a centre, as the tire of a wheel, but 'around' is used for detached objects encircling.

Verse 5

4:5 lamps (f-15) Lampas . only here and ch. 8.10 where the word is translated 'torch.' Not the lamp as a utensil ( luchnia , ch. 1.13), but what furnished the light itself

Verse 6

4:6 around (e-19) I use 'round' for what is connected with anything (not necessarily united to it) as a centre, as the tire of a wheel, but 'around' is used for detached objects encircling.

Verse 8
