Romans 2:11

Respect of persons (proswpolhmpsia). Milligan (Vocabulary) considers this word (in N.T. only here, Colossians 3:25 ; Ephesians 6:9 ) and proswpolhmpth ( Acts 10:34 ) and proswpolhmptew ( James 2:9 ) the earliest definitely known Christian words, not in LXX or non-Christian writings. See on "Ac 10:34" for the formation in imitation of the Hebrew to take note of the face (proswpon, lambanw), to judge by the face or appearance.
