Vincent's Word Studies

Habitation (ἔπαυλις)

Only here in New Testament. The word is used in classical Greek of a place for cattle. So Herodotus (i., 111): "The herdsman took the child in his arms, and went back the way he had come, till he reached the fold" (ἔπαυλιν). Also of farm-building, a country-house.

Bishopric (ἐπισκοπήν)

See on 1 Peter 2:12. Rev., better, office, with overseership in margin. Compare Luke 19:44.

Another (ἕτερος)

And different person. See on Acts 2:4.
