STRONGS NT 1327: διέξοδος

διέξοδος, διεξοδου, ; from Herodotus down; a way out through, outlet, exit: διέξοδοι τῶν ὁδῶν, Matthew 22:9, literally, ways through which ways go out, i. e. according to the context and the design of the parable places before the city where the roads from the country terminate, therefore outlets of the country highways, the same being also their entrances; (cf. Obadiah 1:14; Ezekiel 21:21; the R. V. renders it partings of the highways). The phrase figuratively represents the territory of heathen nations, into which the apostles were about to go forth (as is well shown by Fischer, De vitiis lexamples N. T., p. 634ff). Used of the boundaries of countries, it is equivalent to the Hebrew תּוצָאות, Numbers 34:4f, 8f, and often in the book of Joshua (cf. Rieder, Die zusammen gesetzten Verba as above with p. 18. Others understand the crossings or thoroughfares here to represent the most frequented spots.)

STRONGS NT 1327a: διερμηνείαδιερμηνεία, διερμηνειας, (διερμηνεύω, which see), interpretation: of obscure utterances, 1 Corinthians 12:10 L text (not yet found elsewhere.)
