καθ' εἷς (Romans 12:5)

Romans 12:5 reads: οὕτως οἱ πολλοὶ ἓν σῶμά ἐσμεν ἐν Χριστῷ, τὸ δὲ καθ' εἷς ἀλλήλων μέλη. I understand this to mean: "Thus, the many are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.

Re: Ἐμοὶ ἐκδίκησις (Romans 12:19)

Very interesting posts, Thomas and Jonathan, thanks. I did basic Greek with Mounce and Black. I much prefer Black to Mounce.

Ἐμοὶ ἐκδίκησις (Romans 12:19)
