"Which is your reasonable service" (Rom. 12:1)—In classical Greek, the word "latreia" was used to denote "service" of any sort; but in the Greek of the New Testament it is used particularly with reference to "service rendered to God," and so "worship." The term rendered "reasonable" means "in accord with reason or soul," and sometimes "spiritual." Thus the Revised Version (Margin) has: "your spiritual worship"; and Goodspeed: "your rational worship."
"He that giveth, let him do it with simplicity" (Rom. 12:8)—The Greek word rendered "simplicity" can also mean "singleness" in the sense of "sincerity, mental honesty," while another possible rendering is "liberality." Thus Weymouth (Fifth Edition) has: "One who gives should be liberal;" and Goodspeed: "... the giver of charity, with generosity."
