Hath taken (eilhpen). Perfect active indicative of lambanw. But such as man can bear (ei mh anqrwpino). Except a human one. Old adjective meaning falling to the lot of man. Above that ye are able (uper o dunasqe). Ellipsis, but plain. There is comfort in that God is faithful, trustworthy (pisto). The way of escape (thn ekbasin). "The way out" is always there right along with (sun) the temptation. This old word only here in N.T. and Hebrews 13:7 about death. It is cowardly to yield to temptation and distrustful of God.
