John 41:2 He (c-1) In John, the personal pronoun, generally emphatic in Greek where inserted, is used so constantly that it can hardly be considered such in many cases, but certain instances which are considered to be more definitely emphatic are given in italics. The same spirit of emphasis causes the very frequent use of ekeinos for the third person ('he,' 'they,' &c.). Its sense is 'that,' contrasted with 'this,' and hence is emphatic; as 'that man' in English, sometimes having the sense of 'such a one as that.' A number of cases where this word also is used emphatically have also been indicated.4:6 fountain (f-3) Another word is used for the 'well,' ver. 11, in which the spring was; and this word, translated 'fountain,' is used for what springs up as life in the renewed man. was (g-22) Lit. 'thus.' see 1Cor. 7.26, 'so as he is' and Note, 2Pet. 3.4. 4:14 ever, (h-16) 'Never thirst for ever' is a little awkward, but 'never thirst' is too vague; it may be to our minds much as a present thing for this life. The expression is strong in negation, and expresses lasting for ever. see chs. 8.51,52; 10.28; 11.26; 13.8. 4:20 worshipped (a-3) Proskuneo, and so to ver. 24. see Matt 4.10. 4:21 hour (b-9) Or 'an hour,' as ch. 5.25,28, and see Note, 1John 2.18. 4:23 hour (b-3) Or 'an hour,' as ch. 5.25,28, and see Note, 1John 2.18. 4:24 spirit; (c-4) Or 'God [is] spirit.' 4:39 on (d-10) As ch. 2.11. 4:48 not (a-14) A strengthened negative. 4:49 child (b-11) The diminutive, but not in ver. 51. 4:51 servants (c-9) Or 'bondmen,' doulos.
