Saint(s):

for the meaning and use of which see HOLY, B, No. 1, is used as a noun in the singular in Phl 4:21, where pas, "every," is used with it. In the plural, as used of believers, it designates all such and is not applied merely to persons of exceptional holiness, or to those who, having died, were characterized by exceptional acts of "saintliness." See especially 2Th 1:10, where "His saints" are also described as "them that believed," i.e., the whole number of the redeemed. They are called "holy ones" in Jud 1:14, RV. For the term as applied to the Holy Spirit see HOLY SPIRIT. See also SANCTIFY.

Notes:

(1) In Rev 15:3 the RV follows those texts which have aionon, "ages," and assigns the reading ethnon, "nations," to the margin; the AV translates those which have the inferior reading hagion, "saints," and puts "nations" and "ages" in the margin.

(2) In Rev 18:20, the best texts have hagioi and apostoloi, each with the article, each being preceeded by kai, "and," RV, "and ye saints, and ye apostles;" the AV, "and ye holy apostles" follows those mss. from which the 2nd kai and the article are absent.

(3) In Rev 22:21, the RV follows those mss. which have hagion, with the article, "(with) the saints;" the AV those which simply have panton, "all," but adds "you" (RV, marg., "with all").

CONTENT DISCLAIMER:

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.
