1. a part due or assigned to one (German Antheil): ἀφαιρεῖν, τό μέρος τίνος (genitive of person) ἀπό or ἐκ τίνος (genitive of the thing), Revelation 22:19; ἔχειν μέρος ἐν with the dative of the thing, Revelation 20:6; μέρος ἔχειν μετά τίνος (participation in the same thing, i. e.) to have part (fellowship) with one, John 13:8; hence, as sometimes in classical Greek (Euripides, Alc. 477 (474)), lot, destiny, assigned to one, Revelation 21:8; τιθέναι τό μέρος τίνος τινων, to appoint one his lot with certain persons, Matthew 24:51; Luke 12:46.

2. one of the constituent parts of a whole;

a. universally: in a context where the whole and its parts are distinguished, Luke 11:36; John 19:23; Revelation 16:19; with a genitive of the whole, Luke 15:12; Luke 24:42; where it is evident from the context of what whole it is a part, Acts 5:2; Ephesians 4:16; τό ἕν μέρος namely, τοῦ συνεδρίου, Acts 23:6; τοῦ μέρους τῶν Φαρισαίων, of that part of the Sanhedrin which consisted of Pharisees, Acts 23:9 (not Lachmann); τά μέρη, with the genitive of a province or country, the divisions or regions which make up the land or province, Matthew 2:22; Acts 2:10; with the genitive of a city, the region belonging to a city, country around it, Matthew 15:21; Matthew 16:13; Mark 8:10; τά ἀνωτερικά μέρη, the upper districts (in tacit contrast with τά κατώτερα, and with them forming one whole), Acts 19:1; τά μέρη ἐκεῖνα, those regions (which are parts of the country just mentioned, i. e.

V. that which is in part) imperfect (Luth. well,das Stückwerk), 1 Corinthians 13:10. (Green (Critical Note on 2 Corinthians 1:14) says "ἀπό μέρους differs in Paul's usage from ἐκ μέρους in that the latter is a contrasted term in express opposition to the idea of a complete whole, the other being used simply without such aim"; cf. Bernhardy (1829) Syntax, p. 230; Meyer on 1 Corinthians 12:27.)

b. any particular, German Stück (where the writer means to intimate that there are other matters, to be separated from that which be has specified): ἐν τῷ μέρει τούτῳ, in this particular i. e. in regard to this, in this respect, 1 Peter 4:16 R; 2 Corinthians 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:3; with a genitive of the thing, Colossians 2:16 (where see Lightfoot); τοῦτο τό μέρος, namely, τῆς ἐργασίας ἡμῶν (branch of business), Acts 19:27, cf. Acts 19:25.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In view of Paul’s reference to the θρησκεία τῶν ἀγγέλων in Colossians 2:18, it is interesting to note the existence of the great Church of St. Michael situated close to the walls of Colossai, and continuing as a religious centre long after the name of the town had itself disappeared : see C. and B. i. p. 214 ff. Sir W. M. Ramsay also cites various inscrr. showing that the worship of Michael was common in Asia Minor, e.g. ib. ii. p. 541, No. 404 where Michael is named along with Gabriel and other angels, and ib. p. 741, No. 678 where the words + Ἀρχάνγελε Μιχαήλ, ἐλέησον τὴν πόλι σου κ [α ]ὶ ῥύση αὐτὴν ἀπὸ τοῦ πονηρ (οῦ) + (cf. Matthew 6:13, Luke 11:4 A) ran round the pillar of a very ancient church (now destroyed) at Afion- Kara- Hissar. Other references to Michael are P Leid Wxxi. 16 (ii/iii A.D.) (= II. p. 153) διὸ συνίσταμαί σοι διὰ τοῦ μεγάλου ἀρχιστρατήγου Μιχαήλ, κύριε κτλ., and the magic P Lond 121.257 (iii/A.D.) (= I. p. 92) παρεμφαίνων. . . τῷ ἀρχαγγέλῳ Μιχαήλ. On the part Michael played in magic see W. Lueken Michael : eine Darstellung und Vergleichung der jüdischen und der morgenländisch-christlichen Tradition vom Erzengel Michael, Göttingen, 1898, and for Michael, as the angel of peace, guiding the souls of the righteous to the heavenly Jerusalem, see Charles’ note on Test . xii. patr. Benj. vi. 1.
