Winers Grammar, 38, 232 (218); Buttmann, 185 (160)): Matthew 3:17; Matthew 12:18 Tr; Matthew 17:5; Mark 1:11; Luke 3:22 (on the tense in the preceding passage cf.

Winers Grammar, § 31, 5; Buttmann, § 133, 23): Matthew 12:18 R G; 2 Peter 1:17; with a simple accusative of person to be favorable to, take pleasure in (cf.
