Luke 7:25

Gorgeously apparelled (en imatismwi endoxwi). In splendid clothing. Here alone in this sense in the N.T. And live delicately (truph). From qruptw to break down, to enervate, an old word for luxurious living. See the verb trupaw in James 5:5 . In kings' courts (en toi basileioi). Only here in the N.T. Matthew 11:8 has it "in kings' houses." Verses Matthew 26 27 are precisely alike in Matthew 11:9 Matthew 11:10 , which see for discussion.
