Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament1 Corinthians 14:3
- Edification (oikodomhn).
- Building up.
- Comfort (paraklhsin).
- Encouragement, calling to one's side.
- Consolation (paramutian).
- Old word (from para, mutos, paramuteomai 1 Thessalonians 2:12 which see, a stimulating word), nowhere else in N.T., but paramution in Philippians 2:1 with paraklhsiv as here. Edification, cheer, incentive in these words.
