Advantage

ADVANTAGE

ad-van'-taj (cakhan):

In Job 35:3 is interpreted in succeeding clause as "profit." In Romans 3:1 perissos, is likewise interpreted by a paraphrase in the next sentence. the Revised Version (British and American) prefers to render pleonekteo by "take advantage," where the King James Version has "defraud" (2 Corinthians 7:2), or "make gain of" (2 Corinthians 12:17; compare 2 Corinthians 2:11). In Jude 1:16 "advantage" (opheleia) means "profit."
