Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentLuke 8:22
- And they launched forth (kai anhxthsan).
- First aorist passive indicative of anagw, an old verb, to lead up, to put out to sea (looked at as going up from the land). This nautical sense of the verb occurs only in Luke in the N.T. and especially in the Acts (Acts 13:13; 16:11; 18:21; 20:3,13; 21:1,2; 27:2,4,12,21;28:10).
