"The earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God" (Rom. 8:19)—The term which is here translated "creature" means more literally "creation"; while that which is translated "manifestation" ("apokalupsin"—the term from which our word Apocalypse is derived) has the literal sense of "revelation," and indeed comes from the same root as the word rendered "revealed" in the previous verse. Thus it has been suggested that we translate: "All creation is eagerly awaiting the revelation of the sons of God." Moffatt renders: "Even the creation waits with eager longing for the sons of God to be revealed."
"Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed" (II Cor. 6:3)—Thayer reminds us, in his Greek Lexicon, that the Greek word "proskopen," here rendered "offence," is more literally "a stumbling block"; while "diakonia" (ministry) means literally "service." Goodspeed suggests: "I put no obstacle in anyone's path, so that no fault may be found with my work;" and Weymouth (Fifth Edition) has: "We give no cause for stumbling of any sort, lest our ministry should incur discredit."
