Daniel 2425 Quotation from Isaiah 40:6-8 (partly like the LXX, partly like the Hebrew). For (dioti). As in verse 1 Peter 1:16 (dia and oti), "for that." So in 1 Peter 2:6 . See a free use of this imagery about the life of man as grass and a flower in James 1:11 . The best MSS. here read auth (thereof) after doxa (glory) rather than anqrwpou (of man). Withereth (exhranqh). First aorist (gnomic, timeless) passive indicative of xhrainw (see James 1:11 ). Falleth (exepesen). Second aorist (gnomic, timeless) active indicative of ekpiptw (see James 1:11 ). In verse 1 Peter 1:25 note ei uma (unto you) like ei uma in 1 Peter 1:4 (umin dative).
