  • a 7:6 - See ch. 5.25 and Mark 4.12.
  • b 7:14 - Or 'how narrow.'
  • c 7:20 - 'Recognize,' 'know well,' as in ch. 11.27.
  • d 7:20 - i.e. as a necessary consequence.
  • e 7:24 - Hostis, as ch. 2.6. Of that character: 'who was such as.'
  • f 7:24 - Here the article has the force of contrast, as in ch. 4.21. As in English, though the cases are more rare, we say, 'on the way,' 'the way side.' 'The sand' in ver. 26, contrasts with 'the rock' -- that which has that nature.
