Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament1 Timothy 4:2
- Through the hypocrisy of men that speak lies (en upokrisei pseudologwn).
- For upokrisiv, see Galatians 2:13. Pseudologov (pseudhs, legw) Koine word from Aristophanes on. Here only in N.T. "A good classical word for liars on a large scale" (Parry).
- Branded in their own conscience as with a hot iron (kekausthriasmenwn thn idian suneidhsin).
- Accusative case suneidhsin retained with the perfect passive participle of kausthriazw, a rare verb only here and once in Strabo. Branded with the mark of Satan (2 Timothy 2:26) as Paul was with the marks of Christ (Galatians 6:17). Agreeing in case with pseudologwn.
