2 Corinthians 5:19

To wit, that (w oti). Latin puts it quoniam quidem. It is an unclassical idiom, but occurs in the papyri and inscriptions (Moulton, Prol., p. 212; Robertson, Grammar, p. 1033). It is in Esther 4:14 . See also 2 Corinthians 11:21 ; 2 Thessalonians 2:2 . It probably means "how that." Not reckoning (mh logizomeno). What Jesus did (his death for us) stands to our credit ( Romans 8:32 ) if we make our peace with God. This is our task, "the word of reconciliation," that we may receive "the righteousness of God" and be adopted into the family of God.
