Luke 19:25 (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)

KJV Verse: 

Luke 19:25 (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)

 

Greek Verse: 

Hidden Meaning: 

There is no parallel for this verse in Matthew. The Greek is unsurprising.

The Greek word translated as "and" is used as the conjunction "and", but it also is used to add emphasis ("also"). In a series, is best translated as "not only...but also." After words implying sameness "as".

"They said" is from the Greek verb that means "to say" and "to speak" also.

The word translated as "unto him, " is the Greek word commonly translated as pronouns in English.  The word means "the same" when used as an adjective. In the adverbial form, it  means "just here" or "exactly there." 

The word translated as "Lord" is the same word that is often translated as "Lord" or "the Lord" in the NT. It also means "lord", "master of the house," and "head of the family." It is the specific terms for the master of slaves or servants, but it was a common term of respect both for those in authority and who were honored. It was the term people used to address Christ, even though he had no formal authority. Today, we would say "boss" or "chief".

The word translated as "he hath " means to "have", "possess", "bear", "keep close", "have means to do",  "to have due to one", or "keep" and . This verb isn't used to form past tenses as it is in English. 

"Ten" is the Greek word for the numeral "ten".

"Pounds" is  a Greek word that means "a weight", "a sum of money", and "100 drachmas".
