Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament1 Corinthians 16:20
- With a holy kiss (en pilhmati agiwi).
- In the synagogue men kissed men and women kissed women. This was the Christian custom at a later date and apparently so here. See 1 Thessalonians 5:26; 2 Corinthians 13:12; Romans 3:8; 1 Peter 5:14. It seems never to have been promiscuous between the sexes.
