Base, Baser - Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
Base, Baser[ 1,,G36, agenes ]
of low birth" (a, negative, genos, "family, race"), hence denoted "that which is of no reputation, of no account," 1 Corinthians 1:28, "the base things of the world," i.e., those which are of no account or fame in the world's esteem. That the neuter plural of the adjective bears reference to persons is clear from verse 26.

See COURT.
