See LARGE, LONG, MANY, MUCH.

(5) In 2Pe 1:4, megistos, the superlative of megas (No. 1), said of the promises of God, is rendered "exceeding great."

(6) In Mat 21:8, pleistos, the superlative of polus (No. 2), said of a multitude, is rendered "very great" in the AV (RV, "the most part").

(7) In Rev 21:10, the most authentic mss. omit "that great" [RV, "the holy (city)"].

(8) In Luk 10:2, the RV renders polus by "plenteous" (AV, "great").

(9) In Mar 1:35, the adverb lian, exceedingly (see GREATLY), is rendered "a great while."
See DAY, B.

(10) In Luk 1:49 some texts have megaleia, "great things;" the best have No. 1.
