Particular, Particularly

PARTICULAR, PARTICULARLY

pir-tik'-u-lar, par-tik'-u-lar-li:

The adverbial phrase "in particular" occurs twice in the King James Version (1 Corinthians 12:27, ek merous, the Revised Version (British and American) "severally," the Revised Version margin "each in his part"; and Ephesians 5:33, hoi kath' hena, the Revised Version (British and American) "severally"); in both cases it has the obsolete meaning of "severally," "individually." The adverb "particularly" occurs in the same sense in Acts 21:19 the King James Version, kath' hen hekaston, the Revised Version (British and American) "one by one," and Hebrews 9:5 the King James Version, kata meros, the Revised Version (British and American) "severally." We have the plural noun in the sense of "details" in 2 Macc 2:30: "to be curious in particulars"; 11:20, (the King James Version "Of the particulars I have given order," the Revised Version (British and American) I have given order in detail); and the adjective "particular" in the sense of "special" in the first Prologue to Sirach (King James Version, Vulgate (Jerome's Latin Bible, 390-405 A.D.) peculiares; the whole section was omitted in the Revised Version (British and American)).
