But I found (egw de katelabomhn). Second aorist middle of katalambanw, to lay hold of, to grasp, to comprehend as in 1 Timothy 4:13 ; 1 Timothy 10:34 . That he had committed nothing worthy of death (mhden axion auton qanatou pepracenai). Perfect active infinitive of prassw in indirect assertion with negative mh and accusative auton of general reference, the usual idiom. Verse 1 Timothy 25 repeats the statement in verse 1 Timothy 21 , perhaps for the benefit of the assembled dignitaries.
