"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."
"The mount of Olives" (Matt. 24:3)—It may be recalled that the "mount of Olives" is not a single peak, as this rendering might suggest, but rather a range of hills which lies to the east of Jerusalem, and is separated from Mount Zion, on which in the Master's day the temple still stood, by the valley of the brook Kidron. To this day the site of the temple is in full view from "the mount."
