STRONGS NT 5100: τὶς

τὶς, neuter τὶ, genitive τίνος, indefinite (enclitic) pronoun (bearing the same relation to the interrogative τίς that ποῦ, πῶς, πότε do to the interrogatives ποῦ, πῶς, πότε);

1. a certain, a certain one; used of persons and things concerning which the writer either cannot or will not speak more particularly;

a. joined to nouns substantive, as well as to adjectives and to numerals used substantively; as, Σαμαρείτης τίς, Luke 10:33; ἱερεύς, Luke 1:5; Luke 10:31; ἀνήρ, Luke 8:27; Acts 3:2; Acts 8:9; Acts 14:8; ἄνθρωπος, Matthew 18:12; Luke 10:30; Acts 9:33; plural Jude 1:4; τόπος, Luke 11:1; Acts 27:8; κώμη, Luke 10:38; Luke 17:12, and in many other passages; with proper names (as τάς Σίμων), Mark 15:21; Luke 23:26; Acts 9:43; Acts 21:16; Acts 25:19. δύο τινες with a partitive genitive, Luke 7:18(19); Acts 23:23; ἕτερος, Acts 8:34; plural Acts 27:1; it indicates that the thing with which it is connected belongs to a certain class and resembles it: ἀπαρχήν τινα, a kind of firstfuits, James 1:18, cf. Winer's Grammar, § 25, 2 a; joined to adjectives of quality and quantity, it requires us to conceive of their degree as the greatest possible; as, φοβερά τίς ἐκδοχή, a certain fearful expectation, Hebrews 10:27, where see Delitzsch (or Alford) (δεινή τίς δύναμις, Xenophon, mem. 1, 3, 12; other examples from the Greek writings are given in Winers Grammar, § 25, 2c.; (Liddell and Scott, under the word, A. II. 8); Matthiae, § 487, 4; (Bernhardy (1829), p. 442); incredibilis quidam amor, Cicero, pro Lig c. 2, 5); μέγας τίς, Acts 8:9.

b. it stands alone, or substantively: universally, τίς one, a certain one, Matthew 12:47 (but WH in marginal reading only); Luke 9:49, 57; Luke 13:6, 23; John 11:1; Acts 5:25; Acts 18:7; plural τινες, certain, some: Luke 13:1; Acts 15:1; Romans 3:8; 1 Corinthians 4:18; 1 Corinthians 15:34; 2 Corinthians 3:1; Galatians 2:12; 2 Thessalonians 3:11; 1 Timothy 1:3, 19; 1 Timothy 4:1; 1 Timothy 5:15; 1 Timothy 6:10; 2 Peter 3:9; τινες ἐν ὑμῖν, some among you, 1 Corinthians 15:12; a participle may be added — either with the article, τινες οἱ etc., Luke 18:9; 2 Corinthians 10:2; Galatians 1:7; or without it, 1 Timothy 6:21; τίς and τινες with a partitive genitive: Luke 11:1; Luke 14:15; 2 Corinthians 10:12.


a. joined to nouns and signifying some: χρόνον τινα, some time, a while, 1 Corinthians 16:7; ἡμέραι τινες, some (or certain) days, Acts 9:19; Acts 10:48; Acts 15:36; Acts 16:12; Acts 24:24; Acts 25:13; μέρος τί, Luke 11:36 (here WH marginal reading brackets τί); Acts 5:2; 1 Corinthians 11:18; τί βρώσιμον, Luke 24:41; add, Mark 16:18; John 5:14; Acts 17:21; Acts 23:20; Acts 28:21; Hebrews 11:40; βραχύ τί, Acts 5:34 (where L T Tr WH omit τί); Hebrews 2:7; περισσότερον τί, 2 Corinthians 10:8; μικρόν τί, 2 Corinthians 11:16; it serves modestly to qualify or limit the measure of things, even though that is thought to be ample or large (cf. 1 a. under the end): κοινωνία τίς, a certain contribution, Romans 15:26; καρπός, Romans 1:13; χάρισμα, ibid. 11. with a participle, ἀθετήσας τάς, if anyone has set at nought, Hebrews 10:28 (but this example belongs rather under the next entry).

b. standing alone, or used substantively, and signifying someone, something; anyone, anything: universally, Matthew 12:29; Mark 9:30; Mark 11:16; Luke 8:46; John 2:25; John 6:46; Acts 17:25; Romans 5:7; 1 Corinthians 15:35; 2 Corinthians 11:20; Hebrews 3:4; James 2:18; 2 Peter 2:19, etc.; τίς ἐξ ὑμῶν, James 2:16; ἐξ ὑμῶν τίς, Hebrews 3:13; with a partitive genitive, Luke 7:36; Luke 11:45; 1 Corinthians 6:1; neuter τί with a partitive genitive, Acts 4:32; Romans 15:18; Ephesians 5:27. εἰς τίς, see εἷς, 3, p. 187a. it answers not infrequently to the indefinite one (German man, Frenchon): Mark 8:4; John 2:25; John 16:30; Romans 8:24; Hebrews 5:12 (where some (viz. R G T Tr (cf. Winers Grammar, 169 (160); R. V. marginal reading which be the rudiments etc.; cf.

c. below)) incorrectly read τινα (yet cf. Buttmann, 268 (230) note, cf. 260 (223) note)), etc.; cf. Matthiae, § 487, 2. εἰ τίς, see εἰ, III. 16; ἐάν τίς, τίνος, etc.: Matthew 21:3; Matthew 24:23; Mark 12:19; Luke 16:31; John 6:51; John 7:17; John 8:51; John 9:22, 31; John 10:9; John 11:9f, 57; John 12:26, 47; Acts 9:2 (here Tdf. ἄν); ; 1 Corinthians 5:11; 1 Corinthians 8:10; 1 Corinthians 10:28; Colossians 3:13; 1 Timothy 1:8; 2 Timothy 2:5, 21; James 2:14; James 5:19; 1 John 2:15; 1 John 4:20; 1 John 5:16; Revelation 3:20; Revelation 22:18f; ἄν τινων, John 20:23 (here Lachmann ἐάν); ἐάν μή τίς, John 3:3, 5; John 15:6; Acts 8:31; οὐ ... τίς, not ... anyone, i. e. no one, John 10:28; οὔτε ... τίς, Acts 28:21; οὐδέ ... τίς, Matthew 11:27; Matthew 12:19; οὐκ ... ὑπό τίνος, 1 Corinthians 6:12; μή τίς, lest any (man), Matthew 24:4; Mark 13:5; Acts 27:42; 1 Corinthians 1:15; 1 Corinthians 16:11; 2 Corinthians 8:20; 2 Corinthians 11:16; 2 Corinthians 12:6; Ephesians 2:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:15; Hebrews 4:11; Hebrews 12:15; hath any (one), John 4:33 (cf. μήτις, 2); μή τινα, 2 Corinthians 12:17; πρός τό μή ... τινα, 1 Thessalonians 2:9; ὥστε ... μή τινα, Matthew 8:28; like the Latinaliquis, it is used with the verb εἶναι emphatically: to be somebody, i. e. somebody of importance, some eminent personage (Winers Grammar, § 25, 2 c.; Buttmann, § 127, 16), Acts 5:36 (see examples from the Greek writings in Passow, under the word, B. II. 2 d.; (Liddell and Scott, ibid. A. II. 5); on the phrase τί εἶναι see e. β. below). Plural, τινες, some (of that number or class of men indicated by the context): Mark 14:4, 65; Luke 21:5; John 13:29; τινες are distinguished from οἱ πάντες, 1 Corinthians 8:7; 1 Corinthians 9:22. τινες with an anarthrous participle, Mark 14:57; Luke 13:1; ταῦτα τινες ἦτε, such (of this sort) were some of you, 1 Corinthians 6:11 (cf. οὗτος, I. 2 d.); τινες with a partitive genitive, Matthew 9:3; Matthew 12:38; Matthew 28:11; Mark 7:1; Mark 12:13; Luke 6:2; Luke 19:39; Acts 5:15; Acts 17:18, 28, and often; followed by ἐκ and a partitive genitive, Luke 11:15; John 6:64; John 7:25, 44; John 9:16; John 11:37, 46; Acts 11:20; Acts 15:24, etc.; Paul employs τινες by meiosis in reference to many, when he would mention something censurable respecting them in a mild way: Romans 3:3; 1 Corinthians 10:7-10.

c. Sometimes the subject τίς, τινες, or the object τινα, τινας, is not added to the verb, but is left to be understood by the reader (cf. Buttmann, § 132, 6; (Winer's Grammar, §§ 58, 2; 64, 4)): before the partitive genitive Acts 21:16; before ἀπό, Matthew 27:9 (1 Macc. 7:33); before ἐκ, Matthew 23:34; Luke 21:16; (John 1:24 T Tr WH (cf. R. V. marginal reading); L T Tr WH (cf. R. V. marginal reading)); ; (2 John 4; Revelation 2:10). (Other examples of its apparent omission are the following: as subject — of a finite verb (Winer's Grammar, § 58, 9 b. β.; Buttmann, § 129, 19): φησί, 2 Corinthians 10:10 R G T Tr text WH text; ὅταν λαλῇ τό ψεῦδος, John 8:44 (according to one interpretation; see R. V. margin); of an infinitive: οὐ χρείαν ἔχετε γράφειν ὑμῖν, 1 Thessalonians 4:9 R G T Tr text WH; χρείαν ἔχετε τοῦ διδάσκειν ὑμᾶς, τινα etc. Hebrews 5:12 R G T Tr (but see 2 b. above). as object: δός μοι πιεῖν, John 4:7; cf. Mark 5:43. See Kühner, § 352 g.; Krüger, § 55, 3, 21.)

d. It stands in partitions: τίς ... ἕτερος δέ, one ... and another, 1 Corinthians 3:4; plural τινες (μέν) ... τινες (δέ), Luke 9:7f.; Acts 17:18; Philippians 1:15; cf. Passow, under the word, B. II. 2e.; (Liddell and Scott, ibid. A. II. 11. c.).

e. Besides what has been already adduced, the following should be noticed respecting the use of the neuter τί; α. universally, anything, something: Matthew 5:23; Mark 8:23; Luke 11:54; Acts 25:5, 11; 1 Corinthians 10:31, and very often; οὐδέ ... τί, neither ... anything, 1 Timothy 6:7. β. like the Latinaliquid it is used emphatically, equivalent to something of consequence, something extraordinary (cf.

b. above): in the phrase εἶναι τί, 1 Corinthians 3:7; Galatians 2:6; Galatians 6:3; cf. Passow, under the word, B. II. 2 d.; (Liddell and Scott, under the word, A. II. 5); and on the Latinaliquid esse see Klotz, Handwörterb. d. Latin Spr. 1:298b; (Harpers' Dictionary, under the word aliquis, II. C. 1) (on the other hand, in 1 Corinthians 10:19 τί εἶναι means to be anything, actually to exist); εἰδέναι (L T Tr WH ἐγνωκέναι) τί, i. e. much, 1 Corinthians 8:2.

3. As respects the position of the word, when used adjectivally it stands — now before its noun (τίς ἀνήρ, Acts 3:2; Acts 14:8; τίς μαθητής, Acts 9:10; τινας ἑτέρους, Acts 27:1; τί ἀγαθόν, John 1:47); now, and indeed far more frequently, after it, as ἱερεύς τίς, Luke 1:5; Luke 10:31; ἀνήρ τίς, Luke 8:27, etc., etc. Τίνες, used substantively, is found at the beginning of a sentence in Matthew 27:47; Luke 6:2; John 13:29; 1 Timothy 5:24; Philippians 1:15; cf. Winer's Grammar, § 25, 2 Note, and 559 (520). The particle δέ may stand between it and its substantive (as Σαμαρείτης δέ τίς), as in Luke 10:33, 38; Acts 8:9; Hebrews 10:27.
