If ye have tasted (ei egeusasqe). Condition of first class with ei and first aorist middle indicative of geuw in figurative sense as in Hebrews 6:4 . "A taste excites the appetite" (Bengel). Gracious (crhsto). Quotation from Psalms 34:8 . The Hebrew for the LXX crhsto is simply tobh (good). Plato used the word for food also, and Peter carries out the metaphor in gala (milk) as in Luke 5:39 .
