Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words

Observation, Observe:

"attentive watching" (akin to paratereo, "to observe"), is used in Luk 17:20, of the manner in which the kingdom of God (i.e., the operation of the spiritual kingdom in the hearts of men) does not come, "in such a manner that it can be watched with the eyes" (Grimm-Thayer), or, as AV marg., "with outward show."

B-1 Verb Strong's Number: g333 Greek: anatheoreo

Observation, Observe:

"to observe carefully, consider well" (ana, "up," intensive, and theoreo, "to behold"), is used in Act 17:23, RV, "observed" (of Paul's notice of the objects of Athenian worship), and Hbr 13:7, "considering."
