Run, Ran:

"to run," is used

(a) literally, e.g., Mat 27:48 (dramon, an aorist participle, from an obsolete verb dramo, but supplying certain forms absent from trecho, lit., "having run, running," expressive of the decisiveness of the act); the same form in the indicative mood is used, e.g., in Mat 28:8; in the Gospels the literal meaning alone is used; elsewhere in 1Cr 9:24 (twice in 1st part); Rev 9:9, AV, "running" (RV, "rushing");

(b) metaphorically, from the illustration of "runners" in a race, of either swiftness or effort to attain an end, Rom 9:16, indicating that salvation is not due to human effort, but to God's sovereign right to exercise mercy; 1Cr 9:24 (2nd part), and 1Cr 9:26, of persevering activity in the Christian course with a view to obtaining the reward; so Hbr 12:1; in Gal 2:2 (1st part), RV, "(lest) I should be running," continuous present tense, referring to the activity of the special service of his mission to Jerusalem; (2nd part), "had run," aorist tense, expressive of the continuous past, referring to the activity of his antagonism to the Judaizing teachers at Antioch, and his consent to sumbit the case to the judgment of the church in Jerusalem; in Gal 5:7 of the erstwhile faithful course doctrinally of the Galatian believers; in Phl 2:16, of the Apostle's manner of life among the Philippian believers; in 2Th 3:1, of the free and rapid progress of "the word of the Lord."
