This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1825 Excerpt: ...numbers are doubled, they denote distribution. E. g. Mark 6: 7 dvo dvo r, gaxo anoanXXtiv two and two he sent them forth. The Greeks say ava dvo, which occurs in Luke 10: 1. The first mode of expression is Hebraistic; and accordingly, the Syriac translates such expressions as ava dvo by merely repeating the numeral, e. g. Mark 6: 40 To ava ixaxov flio 1iOj. See Gesen. p. 703. Stuart 176. 9. 3. After the cardinal numbers in Hebrew, the name of measures or coins is often omitted; Gesen. p. 700. Stuart 176. 6.

Mark 14:51 Km xgatovoiv avxov ol vtaviaxoi, i. e. they attempted to lay hold of him, made as if they would lay hold on him. Matt. 5: 23 tav ngogqiegrjg To dwgov, i. e. when thou art about to offer, etc. compare v. 24 tX&wv ngogqitge. 2 Cor. 13:1 xgixov Tovro tg%oftai ngog vfiag, i. e. this third time have / determined to come...
