References for 1 Corinthians 4:16
    • f 4:16 - Parakaleo. The word has to be rendered very differently in English in different places, and is hard to render, though simple and easy to understand. It means 'to call upon a person so as to stimulate him to anything;' hence 'to exhort, comfort or encourage:' see Note to 2Cor. 1.4. It has a fuller force here than a mere apostolic or pastoral exhortation.
