Hence the AV, "was wont (to be made);" it is rendered "to think" in Matthew 5:17 ; 10:34 ; Acts 8:20 ; 17:29 ; 1 Corinthians 7:36 . See THINK.

It is most frequently rendered "to think," always in Matthew; always in John, except John 11:31 , "supposing," RV [where the best texts have this verb (for lego, AV, "saying")], and John 20:15 (see above).
