Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentActs 27:22
- And now (kai ta nun).
- Accusative plural neuter article of general reference in contrast with men in verse 21. Paul shows modesty (Bengel) in the mild contrast.
- No loss of life (apobolh psuxhv oudemia).
- Old word from apoballw, to throw away, only twice in N.T. Romans 11:15 (rejection) and here. He had foretold such loss of life as likely (verse 10), but he now gives his reason for his changed view.
