"The sincere milk of the word" (I Pet. 2:2)—The term which is here rendered "of the word" has the more literal meaning of "rational," and so "in accord with reason or soul." Then the Greek term "adolos" was often used in the early papyrus manuscripts in the special sense of "unadulterated" or "pure," though its literal meaning is "guileless" or "sincere," as suggested in our Common Version. The Twentieth Century New Testament well translates: "pure spiritual milk."
That thy trust may be in the Lord, I have made known to thee this day, even to thee" (Prov. 22:19)—The Hebrew form rendered "make known to" was often used in the special sense of "teach"; hence the rendering offered by Delitzsch: "That thy trust may be placed in Jahve, I have taught thee to-day, even thee!" Smith prefers: "Words of life I teach you this day, that your trust may be in the Lord."
