pir - tik´ū́ - lar , par - tik´ū́ - lar - 51 : The adverbial phrase "in particular" occurs twice in the King James Version ( 1 Corinthians 12:27 , ἐκ μέρους , ek mérous , the Revised Version (British and American) "severally," the Revised Version margin "each in his part"; and Ephesians 5:33 , οἱ καθ ' ἕνα , hoi kath' héna , the Revised Version (British and American) "severally"); in both cases it has the obsolete meaning of "severally," "individually." The adverb "particularly" occurs in the same sense in Acts 21:19 the King James Version, καθ ' ἕν ἕκαστον , kath' hén hékaston , the Revised Version (British and American) "one by one," and Hebrews 9:5 the King James Version, κατὰ μέρος , katá méros , the Revised Version (British and American) "severally." We have the plural noun in the sense of "details" in 2 Macc 2:30: "to be curious in particulars"; 11:20, (the King James Version "Of the particulars I have given order," the Revised Version (British and American) I have given order in detail); and the adjective "particular" in the sense of "special" in the first Prologue to Sirach (King James Version, Vulgate (Jerome's Latin Bible, 390-405 A.D.) peculiares ; the whole section was omitted in the Revised Version (British and American)).
