Bible Notes

[The Biblical citations given in the Christian Science Quarterly are from the Authorized King James Version. The Bible Notes in these columns can be used, if deemed necessary, to elucidate some of the words or passages contained in the Bible Lessons. The Notes in this issue are related to the Lesson-Sermon designated to be read in Christian Science churches on February 1, 1942]

"Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God" (Mark 12:32)—The Greek term "kalos" does indeed mean "well," the implication, however, being "Well said!" Moffatt suggests: "You have truly said, He is One;" and Weymouth (Fifth Edition) renders: "Rightly, in very truth, Rabbi, have you said that He stands alone."

"Hallowed be thy name" (Luke 11:2)— The Greek verb which is here translated "hallow" means strictly "to make or treat as set apart, or holy." Hence the Riverside New Testament has: "Thy name be kept holy;" and the Twentieth Century New Testament: "May thy name be held holy."
