Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
WILL . ‘Will’ and ‘ would ’ are often independent verbs in AV [Note: Authorized Version.] , and being now merely auxiliaries, their force is liable to be missed by the English reader. Thus Matthew 11:14 ‘if ye will receive it’ (RV [Note: Revised Version.] ‘if ye are willing to receive it’); John 1:43 ‘Jesus would go forth into Galilee’ (RV [Note: Revised Version.] ‘was minded to go forth’).
WILL . See Paul, p. 692 a; Testament.
