1: βλέπω

(Strong's #991 — Verb — blepo — blep'-o )

"to behold, look, perceive, see," has the sense of "regarding" by way of pariality, in Matthew 22:16; Mark 12:14 . See BEHOLD , No. 2.

2: ἐντρέπω

(Strong's #1788 — Verb — entrepo — en-trep'-o )

"to turn about" (en, "in," trepo, "to turn"), is metaphorically used of "putting to shame," e.g., 1 Corinthians 4:14; in the Middle Voice, "to reverence, regard," translated "regard" in Luke 18:2,4 . See ASHAMED , REVERENCE , SHAME.

3: φρονέω

(Strong's #5426 — Verb — phroneo — fron-eh'-o )

"to think, set the mind on," implying moral interest and reflection, is translated "to regard" in Romans 14:6 (twice); the second part in the AV represents an interpolation and is not part of the original. The Scripture does not speak of not "regarding" a day. See CARE , B, No. 6, MIND, SAVOR, THINK, UNDERSTAND.

4: ἐπιβλέπω

(Strong's #1914 — Verb — epiblepo — ep-ee-blep'-o )

"to look upon" (epi, "upon," and No. 1), in the NT "to look on with favor," is used in Luke 1:48 , AV, "hath regarded" (RV, "hath looked upon"); in James 2:3 , RV, "ye have regard to" (AV, "ye have respect to"). See LOOK , No. 6, RESPECT.

5: ὀλιγωρέω

(Strong's #3643 — Verb — oligoreo — ol-ig-o-reh'-o )

denotes "to think little of" (oligos, "little," ora, "care"), "to regard lightly," Hebrews 12:5 , RV (AV, "despise"). See DESPISE , Note (3). In the Sept., Proverbs 3:11 .

6: προσέχω

(Strong's #4337 — Verb — prosecho — pros-ekh'-o )

"to take or give heed," is translated "they had regard" in Acts 8:11 , AV (RV, "they gave heed"). See ATTEND , No. 1.

7: ἀμελέω

(Strong's #272 — Verb — ameleo — am-el-eh'-o )

"not to care," is translated "I regared ... not" in Hebrews 8:9 . See NEGLECT.

Notes: (1) In Galatians 6:4 , RV, eis, "into," is translated "in regard of (himself)," AV, "in;" so in 2 Corinthians 10:16; Ephesians 5:32 . (2) In Romans 6:20 , the dative case of dikaiosune, "righteousness," signifies, not "from righteousness," AV, but "in regard of righteousness," RV, lit., "free to righteousness;" i.e., righteousness laid no sort of bond upon them, they had no relation to it in any way. (3) In 2 Corinthians 8:4 the accusative case of charis and koinonia is, in the best texts, used absolutely, i.e., not as the objects of an expressed verb; hence the RV, "in regard to" (AV, "that we would receive," where the verb is the result of a supplementary gloss). (4) For "not regarding" in Philippians 2:30 , AV (RV, "hazarding"), see HAZARD , No. 2.
