Man's, of Man, Mankind (See Also Men):

"human, belonging to man" (from anthropos, see MAN, No. 1), is used

(a) of man's wisdom, in 1Cr 2:13 (some mss. have it in ver. 4, where indeed it is implied; see, however, the RV);

(b) of "man's judgement," 1Cr 4:3 (marg., "day:" see DAY);

(c) of "mankind," Jam 3:7, lit., "the human nature," RV marg. (AV marg., "nature of man");

(d) of human ordinance, 1Pe 2:13; Moulton and Milligan show from the papyri how strongly antithetic to the Divine the use of the word is in this respect;

(e) of temptation, 1Cr 10:13, RV, "such as man can bear" (AV, "such as is common to man"), i.e., such as must and does come to "men;"

(f) of "men's" hands, Act 17:25;

(g) in the phrase "after the manner of men," Rom 6:19.


(1) In Luk 16:12, AV, allotrios, "belonging to another" (allos, "another"), here used as a pronoun, is translated "another man's" (RV, "another's"); so, as an adjective, in Rom 14:4; 15:20; 2Cr 10:15, 16 (in this last the RV omits "man").

(2) In Act 27:22 there is no word representing "man's;" the RV has "of life."

(3) In Rom 5:17, the RV rightly has "the trespass of the one," for AV, "one man's offense."


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
