(D20) Acts 13:17 Example #2

16 “Then Paul stood up, and beckoning with his hand, said, Men of Israel, and ye that fear God, give audience. 17 The God of this people of Israel chose our fathers, and exalted the people when they dwelt as strangers in the land of Egypt, and with an high G1023-arm-βραχίονος (brachionos) brought he them out of it. 

(Inflection: Noun, Genitive, Singular, Masculine)

(D21) Note: Greek Interlinear:

καὶ["AND"]  μετὰ["WITH"]  βραχίονος["ARM"]  ὑψηλοῦ["HIGH"] 

ἐξήγαγεν["He-OUT-LED"]  αὐτοὺς["them"]  ἐξ["OUT"]  αὐτῆς["OF-her(it)"]

(D22) Note: The Greek word: (βραχίονος-arm) should be understood as:

"the might, the power of God".

(D23) Summary.

(1.) The above three (3) verses:

(Luke 1:51), (John 12:38), (Acts 13:17)

all share the same Strong's Number: (G1023)-'the arm'.

(2.) The Strong's Number: (G1023) was inflected in three different ways:

 

(D2) One time (1) as:

Luke 1:51

(“He hath shewed strength with his G1023-arm-βραχίονι, ...”)

(Noun, Dative, Singular, Masculine.)

(D3) One time (1) as:

John 12:38

(“... and to whom hath the G1023-arm-βραχίων of the Lord been revealed?”)

(Noun, Nominative, Singular, Masculine.)

(D4) One time (1) as:

Acts 13:17

(“... and with an high G1023-arm-βραχίονος brought he them out of it.”)

(Noun, Genitive, Singular, Masculine.)

(3.) In all three (3) verses, the definition for the Strong's Number: (G1023)

was that of a 'figurative arm', denoting: might, power, strength.

(4.) The word: (arm-G1023) is only found in the above three (3) verses

[New Testament].

(5.) To be fair, the Greek words: (βραχίονι, βραχίων, βραχίονος) can also refer to the 'actual arm', however, in the context of the above three verses, it does not.

(6.) In the next segment I will define the words:

(arms-G1723) & (arms-G43).
