Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentLuke 20:23
- Perceived (katanohsav).
- From katanoew, to put the mind down on. Mark has eidwv, "knowing," and Matthew gnouv, coming to know or grasping (second aorist active participle of ginwskw).
- Craftiness (panourgian).
- Old word for doing any deed. Matthew has "wickedness" (ponhrian) and Mark "hypocrisy" (upokrisin). Unscrupulous they certainly were. They would stoop to any trick and go the limit.
