"Quit you like men" (I Cor. 16:13)—The Greek verb "andrizesthe" is almost exactly equivalent in meaning to our modern words, "Play the man." Goodspeed suggests: "Act like men." The somewhat archaic word "quit," found in our Authorized Version, is of course a shortened form of the more familiar "acquit." Compare the translation by Weymouth (Fifth Edition): "Acquit yourselves like men."
