Darby's Synopsis of the New Testament

Luke 21

1:2 attendants (c-11) Huperetes . see Note, 1 Corinthians 4:1 .

Verse 18

21:18 wise (a-10) A strengthened negative.

Verse 19

21:19 souls. (b-7) Or 'possess your souls.' In the first sense, that of the text, it is the same thought as Matthew 24:13 ; Luke 17:33 ; Matthew 16:25 ; Luke 9:24 , c.. see Mark 13:13 . For the second, the Greek certainly means 'possess,' as 'owners,' Acts 4:34 . See 1 Thessalonians 4:4 , which evidently does not mean 'obtain a wife,' as alleged. There is the idea in the word of 'having by getting.' see Matthew 10:9 Luke 18:12 . The idea is, 'they would have Messiah's deliverance,' and it is so worded as to allow that it would be a better deliverance to the killed, though some would win life here below.

Verse 21

21:21 it (c-20) i.e. Jerusalem.

Verse 37

21:37 temple, (d-9) abroad (e-17) As 'passed the night,' Matthew 21:17 .

Verse 38

21:38 temple (d-14) Hieron . as Matthew 4:5 .
