Bible Notes

"So shall I talk of thy wondrous works" (Ps. 119:27)—The Hebrew word "siach," rendered "talk of," can also mean "to muse or meditate on, study" (Brown, Driver, Briggs: Hebrew Lexicon, p. 967). Hence, Moffatt renders: "that I may muse upon thy wondrous deeds;" and the Revised Version: "So shall I meditate of thy wondrous works."

"Him that hath called us to glory and virtue" (II Pet. 1:3)—The leading manuscript authorities favor a slightly different reading, which may be literally translated: "Him that hath called us by (or 'to') His own glory and virtue." When the Greek word "arete" (virtue) is referred to persons, it denotes any excellence of body or mind, especially "virtue or goodness," while Thayer points out that when used of God "it denotes his power" (Greek Lexicon, p. 73). Weymouth has: "Him who called us by His own glory and perfection;" and Moffatt: "called us to his own glory and excellence."
