I have inserted 'even' here that it may be quite clear that 'from my mother's womb' is a point of time. There can be no doubt of it: see Matt. 19.12, Luke 1.15; Acts 3.2; 14.8. The Greek has the force of 'taking out,' as distinguished or appropriated to something, though doubtless meaning 'to separate.' I have therefore said 'set apart.'
Very probably 'Cephas;' and at ch. 2.11,14.
