1 Timothy 2:12 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Suffer (ἐπιτρέπω)

Lit. turn over to; thence, permit. See 1 Corinthians 14:34.

Usurp authority (αὐθεντεῖν)

N.T.o. olxx, oClass. It occurs in late ecclesiastical writers. The kindred noun αὐθέντης one who does a thing with his own hand, Wisd. 12:6, and also in Herodotus, Euripides, and Thucydides. Ἁυθεντία right, 3 Macc. 2:29. The verb means to do a thing one's self; hence, to exercise authority. The A.V. usurp authority is a mistake. Rend. to have or exercise dominion over.
