Romans 12:9

Without hypocrisy (anupokrito). Late double compound adjective for which see 2 Corinthians 6:6 . Hypocritical or pretended love is no love at all as Paul describes agaph in 1 Corinthians 13:1 ff. Abhor (apostugounte). Old verb with intensive (apo) dislike, only here in N.T. The present active participle is here employed in the sense of the present active indicative as sometimes happens with the independent participle (Robertson, Grammar, pp. 1132ff.). This same idiom appears with kollwmenoi (cleaving) for which verb see on "1Co 6:17", with prohgoumenoi (preferring) in verse 1 Corinthians 10 (old verb here only in N.T.), and with the participles in verses 1 Corinthians 11-13 and again in verses 1 Corinthians 16-18 . One can supply este if he prefers.
