John 1:47

Behold (ide). Here an exclamation (see John 1:29 ) as often like idou. An Israelite indeed (alhqw Israhleith). "Truly an Israelite," one living up to the covenant name, Israel at its best ( Romans 2:29 ), without the guile (dolo, deceit, bait for fish, from deleazw, to catch with bait) that Jacob once had of which Isaac complained ( Genesis 27:35 , dolo, here in LXX). The servant of Jehovah was to be without guile ( Isaiah 53:9 ).
