Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament2 Corinthians 4:1
- We faint not (ouk egkakoumen).
- Present active indicative of egkakew, late verb (en, kakov) to behave badly in, to give in to evil, to lose courage. In Symmachus (LXX), Polybius, and papyri. It is the faint-hearted coward. Paul speaks of himself (literary plural). Can he not speak for all of us?
