Bible Notes

"His understanding is infinite" (Ps. 147:5)—The original Hebrew means literally: "His understanding has no number;" from which the sense of infinitude is very naturally deduced. Moffatt suggests: "His wisdom is unsearchable;" and Smith: "There is no limit to his understanding."

"All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made" (John 1:3)—The Greek preposition "dia," rendered "by," can also mean "through"; and the word translated "without" is more exactly "apart from" (Souter: Greek Lexicon, p. 286). Hence, Goodspeed has: "Everything came into existence through him, and apart from him nothing came to be;" and Moffatt: "Though him all existence came into being, no existence came into being apart from him;" while Weymouth (fifth edition) suggests: "All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing that now exists came into being."
