Vincent's Word Studies

Heat (καύσων)

See on James 1:11; and Matthew 20:12.

Discern (δοκιμάζειν)

See on trial and tried, 1 Peter 1:7. It means here test or prove. You can test and prove the weather by your signs; but you cannot apply the proof which lies in the signs of the times. Rev., interpret, gives the idea. Wyc., prove.
