Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words

Out, Out Of:


(1) The preposition ek (or ex), which frequently signifies "out of" or "from the midst of," has a variety meanings, among which is "from," as virtually equivalent to apo, "away from," e.g., 2Cr 1:10, "who delivered us out of so great a death, and will deliver;" since death was not acutally experienced, but was impending, ek here does not signify "out of the midst of." In Act 12:7 it is used in the statement "his chains fell off from his hands." In Mat 17:9 it is used of descending from a mountain, not "out of;" "we are not to suppose that they had been in a cave" (Dr. A. T. Robertson, Gram. of the Greek NT). In 1Th 1:10, "even Jesus, which delivereth us from the wrath to come," RV, the question whether ek here means "out of the midst of" or "away from," is to be determined by some statement of Scripture where the subject is specifically mentioned; this is provided, e.g., in 1Th 5:9, the context of which makes clear that believers are to be delivered from (not "out of") the Divine wrath to be executed on the nations at the end of the present age.

(2) For the phrase ek mesou, "out of the way," see MIDST, Note (1), (e).

(3) In Luk 8:4, AV, the phrase kata polin is translated" out of every city" (RV, "of every city," to be taken in connection with "they").

(4) Ektos, "outside of," is translated "out of" in 2Cr 12:2; in 2Cr 12:3 the best mss. have choris, "apart from," RV (AV, ektos, "out of").

(5) For other prepositions, and adverbs, see †, p. 9.

W. E. Vine provided the following footnote on page 9 of his expository dictionary:
In the following pagesindicates that the word referred to (preposition, conjunction, or particle) is not dealt with in this volume.
