The first is ' servare,' or better,' conservare,' the second ' custodire;' and the first, the keeping or preserving, is the consequence of the second, the guarding. What the Lord would say is: "I so guarded, so protected (JpiJXaga), those whom Thou hast given me, that I kept and preserved them (this the rr,priffis') unto the present day." Thus Lampe: "rijps'v est generalius, vitaeque novas finalem conservationem potest exprimere; puXarfrfeiv vero specialius mediorum prajstationem, per quae finis ille obtinetur." He quotes excellently to the point, Prov. xix. 6: 6f EvroXijv, rypeT rijv Iciutou ur,v. Before leaving this branch of the subject, I will give one or two examples more of the way in which a single word in the English does duty for many in the Greek.

V. 17), 5v3u(AEo(Aai (Matt. ix. 4), 5iaXoyi'£o(/.ai (Luke xii. 17),...
