Resource Toolbox
* Notes: (1) "Your" is most frequently the translation of humon, lit., "of you," the genitive plural of su, "thou, you;" it is translated "yours" in 1 Corinthians 3:21,22 ; in 1 Corinthians 8:9 , "of yours;" 1 Corinthians 16:18 ; 2 Corinthians 12:14 . In the following the dative plural, humin, lit., "to you," is translated "your;" Luke 16:11 , lit., "(who will entrust) to you;" in Luke 21:15 "your adversaries" is, lit., "(those opposed) to you;" in 1 Corinthians 6:5 ; 15:34 , AV, "(I speak to) your (shame)," RV, "(I say this to move) you (to shame)," is lit., "(I speak unto a shame) to you." The accusative plural, humas, preceded by kata, "according to," is rendered in Acts 18:15 "your own (law)," RV, AV, "your (law)," lit., "(of the law) according to you," with emphasis and scorn; in Ephesians 1:15 the same construction is used of faith, but kata here means "among," as in the RV, "(the faith ... which is) among you," AV, "your (faith);" in John 14:26 "He shall ... bring to your remembrance" is, lit., "He shall ... put you in mind of." (2) The possessive pronoun, humeteros, "your," is used in Luke 6:20 ; John 7:6 ; 8:17 ; 15:20 ; Acts 27:34 ; Romans 11:31 ; 1 Corinthians 15:31 ; 16:17 ; 2 Corinthians 8:8 ; Galatians 6:13 ; in Luke 16:12 , "your own." (3) In Romans 16:19 , AV, the phrase to epi humin, lit., "the (matter) over you," is rendered "on your behalf" (RV, "over you," following the mss. which omit the neuter article to).
