1:2 prophet, (c-8) Many read 'in the prophets.' My impression is that it was originally 'in the prophet' simply. way. (d-21) Malachi 3:1 .
6:7 power (b-22) Exousia . see Note, Matthew 10:1 .
6:14 by (c-34) Or 'display their force in.' see Matthew 14:2 ; 'fervent,' James 5:16 .
6:18 said (a-3) Imperfect tense, 'kept saying.' see Matthew 14:4 . Cf. Mark 1:45 .
6:20 safe; (b-17) Or 'observed him diligently.' The word has the force of 'watching closely, and keeping in mind,' whether to pay attention to, or to preserve. Which of these applications is the just one is the question. It is used four times (three besides this); twice for 'preserved,' as the wine and the bottles, Matthew 9:17 ; Luke 5:38 ; once for Mary's 'keeping' things in her heart, Luke 2:19 . I should have preferred 'observed him diligently,' but that I do not find it used of a person , meaning 'paying attention to what he says.' It is used of words and opinions, but then it has still the force of 'keeping them safe.'
6:21 holiday (c-3) The meaning is doubtful. perhaps 'convenient day,' i.e. to Herodias's future purpose. Not a festival, but a leisure day. chiliarchs, (d-20) Commanders of 1,000 men.
6:41 blessed, (a-16) Or 'gave thanks.'
6:45 ship, (b-11) Or 'the ship.' see Matthew 4:21 .
6:46 dismissed (c-3) As 'bid adieu,' Luke 9:61 .
6:52 through (d-5) Or '[even] after.' The 'through' ( epi ) denotes the occasion for their believing.
6:55 was. (e-24) Lit. 'where they heard that he is there.'
6:56 touched (f-39) As ch. 1.41.
