Romans 12:6

Differing (diapora). Old adjective from diaperw, to differ, to vary. So Hebrews 9:10 . According to the proportion of our faith (kata thn analogian th pistew). The same use of pisti (faith) as in verse Hebrews 3 "the measure of faith." Old word. analogia (our word "analogy") from analogo (analogous, conformable, proportional). Here alone in N.T. The verb prophteuwmen (present active volitive subjunctive, let us prophesy) must be supplied with which econte agrees. The context calls for the subjective meaning of "faith" rather than the objective and outward standard though pisti does occur in that sense ( Galatians 1:23 ; Galatians 3:23 ).
