Each, Each Man, Each One:

"each" or "every," is used of any number separately, either

(a) as an adjective qualifying a noun, e.g., Luk 6:44; Jhn 19:23; Hbr 3:13, where "day by day," is, lit., "according to each day;" or, more emphatically with heis, "one," in Mat 26:22; Luk 4:40; 16:5; Act 2:3, 6; 20:31; 1Cr 12:18; Eph 4:7, 16, RV, "each (several)," for AV, "every;" Col 4:6; 1Th 2:11; 2Th 1:3;

(b) as a distributive pronoun, e.g., Act 4:35; Rom 2:6; Gal 6:4; in Phl 2:4, it is used in the plural; some mss. have it thus in Rev 6:11. The repetition in Hbr 8:11 is noticeable, "every man" (i.e., everyone). Prefixed by the preposition ana, "apiece" (a colloquialism), it is used, with stress on the individuality, in Rev 21:21, of the gates of the heavenly city, "each one of the several," RV; in Eph 5:33, preceded by kath' hena, "by one," it signifies "each (one) his own." The phrase hen kath' hen, lit., "one by one," is used in Rev 4:8, "each one of them."
