(Strong's #1381 — Verb — dokimazo — dok-im-ad'-zo )

"to prove with a view to approving," is twice translated by the verb "to allow" in the AV; the RV corrects to "approveth" in Romans 14:22 , and "have been approved," 1 Thessalonians 2:4 , of being qualified to be entrusted with the Gospel; in Romans 1:28 , with the negative, the RV has "refused," for AV, "did not like." See APPROVE.

(Strong's #1097 — Verb — ginosko — ghin-oce'-ko )

"to know," is rendered "allow" in Romans 7:15 (AV); the RV has "that which I do I know not;" i.e., "I do not recognize, as a thing for which I am responible." See AWARE , CAN , FEEL , KNOW , PERCEIVE , RESOLVE , SPEAK , SURE , UNDERSTAND.

(Strong's #4327 — Verb — prosdechomai — pros-dekh'-om-ahee )
