Our, Ours

* Notes:

(1) This usually translates hemon, the genitive of hemeis, we," lit., "of us," e.g., Matthew 6:9, Matthew 6:11-Matthew 6:12. It is translated "ours," e.g., in Mark 12:7; Luke 20:14; 1 Corinthians 1:2; 2 Corinthians 1:14.

(2) In 1 John 4:17, the phrase meta hemon, rendered "our (love)" in the AV, is accurately translated in the RV "(herein is love made perfect) with us," i.e., Divine love in Christ finds its expression in "our" manifestation of it to others.

(3) In Luke 17:5, "increase our faith" is, lit., "add faith to us."

(4) In Luke 24:22, "of our company" is, lit., "from among us."

(5) Hemeteros, a possessive pronoun, more emphatic than hemeis, is used in Luke 16:12, in the best mss. (some have humeteros, "your own"); Acts 2:11; Acts 24:6, in some mss.; Acts 26:5; 2 Timothy 4:15; Titus 3:14, "ours;" 1 John 1:3; 1 John 2:2, "ours."

(6) In Luke 23:41, "of our deeds," is, lit., "of what things we practiced."

(7) In 1 Corinthians 9:10, "for our sake," RV (twice), is, lit., "on account of us."
