FOLLOWER

fol'-o-er (mimetes):

"Followers" is in the King James Version the translation of mimetes, "to imitate" (in the New Testament in the good sense of becoming imitators, or following an example), rendered by the Revised Version (British and American) "imitators" (1 Corinthians 4:16; 1 Corinthians 11:1 Ephesians 5:1 1 Thessalonians 1:6; 1 Thessalonians 2:14 Hebrews 6:12); summimetai, "joint imitators" (Philippians 3:17); in 1 Peter 3:13, the King James Version "followers of that which is good," the word, according to a better text, is zelotis, the Revised Version (British and American) "if ye be zealous of that which is good."
