Sin. (See Scofield "Romans 3:23") .

observation

Or, outward show.

(Greek - = "in the midst)." It could not be said of a self-righteous, Christ rejecting pharisee, that the kingdom of God, as to its spiritual content, was within him. Our Lord's whole answer, designedly enigmatic to the Pharisees (cf) Matthew 13:10-13 had a dispensational meaning. The kingdom in its outward form, as covenanted to David 2 Samuel 7:8-17 and described by the prophets (See Scofield "Zechariah 12:8") had been rejected by the Jews; so that, during this present age, it would not "come with observation" (lit. "outward show") but in the hearts of men (cf) ; Luke 19:11,12; Acts 1:6-8.

(See Scofield "Acts 1:6") . See Scofield "Romans 14:17.

Meantime, the kingdom was actually "in the midst" of the Pharisees in the persons of the King and His disciples.
