Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament2 Corinthians 1:7
- Our hope for you (h elpiv hmwn uper umwn).
- The old word elpiv, from elpizw, to hope, has the idea of waiting with expectation and patience. So here it is "steadfast" (bebaia, stable, fast, from bainw, to plant the feet down).
- Partakers (koinwnoi).
- Partners as in Luke 5:10.
