Romans 5:7

Scarcely (moli). Common adverb from molo, toil. See on Acts 14:18 . As between dikaio, righteous, and agaqo, good, Lightfoot notes "all the difference in the world" which he shows by quotations from Plato and Christian writers, a difference of sympathy mainly, the dikaio man being "absolutely without sympathy" while the agaqo man "is beneficent and kind." Would even dare (kai tolmai). Present active indicative of tolmaw, to have courage. "Even dares to." Even so in the case of the kindly sympathetic man courage is called for to make the supreme sacrifice. Perhaps (taca). Common adverb (perhaps instrumental case) from tacu (swift). Only here in N.T.
