Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament1 John 4:5
- Of the world (ek tou kosmou).
- As Jesus is not and as the disciples are not (John 17:14).
- As of the world (ek tou kosmou).
- No "as" (wv), but that is the idea, for their talk proceeds from the world and wins a ready hearing. The false prophets and the world are in perfect unison.
