far´thing : The rendering of two words in the Greek of the New Testament, ἀσσάριον , assárion , and κοδράντης , kodrántēs , Latin quadrans . The assarion was the tenth part of the denarius , and hence in value about one penny or two cents. The quadrans was the fourth part of the Roman as , and worth only about three mills, or less than the English farthing, and is the only term rendered farthing by the American Standard Revised Version. It occurs in Matthew 5:26 and Mark 12:42 , while assarion , which occurs in Matthew 10:29 and Luke 12:6 , is rendered "penny" by the American Standard Revised Version.
