1: ποτέ
(Strong's #4218 — particle — pote — pot-eh' )

signifies "once, at some time," John 9:13 (cp. proteron, in John 9:8 ); Ephesians 2:2,11 ; Colossians 3:7 ; Titus 3:3 ; Philemon 1:11 ; 1 Peter 3:5,20 . In all these the RV translates it "aforetime." The AV varies it with "in time past," "some time," "sometimes," "in the old time."

2: πρότερον
(Strong's #4386 — Adjective — proteron — prot'-er-on )

the comparative of pro, "before, aforetime," as being definitely antecedent to something else, is more emphatic than pote in this respect. See, e.g., John 6:62 ; 7:50 ; 9:8 ; 2 Corinthians 1:13 ; Galatians 4:13 ; 1 Timothy 1:13 ; Hebrews 4:6 ; 7:27 ; 10:32 ; 1 Peter 1:14 . See BEFORE , FIRST , FORMER.
