Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament2 Corinthians 1:10
- Out of so great a death (ek thlikoutou tanatou).
- He had considered himself as good as dead.
- Delivered (erusato)
- --will deliver (rusetai).
- Old verb ruw, middle, ruomai, draw oneself, as out of a pit, rescue. So Paul faces death without fear.
- On whom we have set our hope (eiv on hlpikamen).
- Perfect active indicative of elpizw. We still have that hope, emphasized by eti rusetai (he will still deliver).
