Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentActs 8:21
- Lot (klhrov).
- Same idea as "part" (meriv), only as a figure.
- Matter (logoi).
- Literally, word or subject (as in Luke 1:4; Acts 15:6), the power of communicating the Holy Spirit. This use of logov is in the ancient Greek.
- Straight (euteia).
- Quotation from Psalms 78:37. Originally a mathematically straight line as in Acts 9:11, then moral rectitude as here.
