This, These

* Note: The singular and plural translate various forms of the following: (1) houtos, which is used (a) as a noun, "this one," followed by no noun, e.g., Matthew 3:17; translated in Luke 2:34 , "this child;" in 1 Corinthians 5:3 , RV, "this thing." (AV, "this deed"); for "this fellow" see FELLOW , Note (3); in Acts 17:32 the RV rightly omits "matter;" in Hebrews 4:5 "place" is italicized; it is frequently rendered "this man," e.g., Matthew 9:3; John 6:52; "of this sort," 2 Timothy 3:6 , AV (RV, "of these"); (b) as an adjective with a noun, either with the article and before it, e.g., Matthew 12:32 , or after the noun (which is preceded by the article), e.g., Matthew 3:9; 4:3 , "these stones;" or without the article often forming a predicate, e.g., John 2:11; 2 Corinthians 13:1; (2) ekeinos, "that one," rendered "this" in Matthew 24:43; (3) autos; "he," rendered "this" in Matthew 11:14 , lit., "he;" in John 12:7 , AV (RV, "it"); in the feminine, Luke 13:16; (4) the article ho, Matthew 21:21 (to, the neuter), AV (RV, "what"); in Romans 13:9 (1st part); Galatians 5:14; Hebrews 12:27 , the article to is virtually equivalent to "the following." The demonstrative pronouns THAT and the plural THOSE translate the same pronouns (1), (2), (3) mentioned above. In Hebrews 7:21 , AV, "those" translates the article, which requires the RV, "they."
