A — 1: παρατήρησις
(Strong's #3907 — Noun Feminine — parateresis — par-at-ay'-ray-sis )

"attentive watching" (akin to paratereo, "to observe"), is used in Luke 17:20 , of the manner in which the kingdom of God (i.e., the operation of the spiritual kingdom in the hearts of men) does not come, "in such a manner that it can be watched with the eyes" (Grimm-Thayer), or, as AV marg., "with outward show."

B — 1: ἀναθεωρέω
(Strong's #333 — Verb — anatheoreo — an-ath-eh-o-reh'-o )

"to observe carefully, consider well" (ana, "up," intensive, and theoreo, "to behold"), is used in Acts 17:23 , RV, "observed" (of Paul's notice of the objects of Athenian worship), and Hebrews 13:7 , "considering." See BEHOLD.
