How do I read your display name? Exactly as it sounds, of course :P (it says "My name is Dan" in broad, phonemic IPA transcription).

Please specify the text in which this word appears that you are inquiring about. The meaning of words are dependent upon their context.

And I also made a small edit to focus it on the original context rather than applying it to a modern religious group. Be sure to check out what makes us different from other sites that study the Bible.

Also, note that claiming the meaning of a specific word in a given context on the basis of the Strong's Concordance is not a reliable claim. Please see this post which explains how to effectively (and properly) use Strong's Concordance.

comment Galatians 6:10 - true meaning of 'and especially'
Welcome to BH.SE. I'm glad you're here. Please don't take the minor prodding personally, it's how we all learn and grow :) This is an interesting answer, but I'm not sure 'namely' brings out the superlative sense of μάλιστα (it would be helpful if you summarized the argument of Skeat's paper, as it stands you haven't really explained this interpretive choice - and I'm not sure why you reference an argument you've never read). Even so, I did not downvote since you acknowledged that this is 'less likely'.

comment Did Jesus promise literal food and clothing in Matthew 6:33?
I've edited this question to focus it on the interpretation of the passage in its original context and to its original audience. This is not the site to deal with its application to religious groups today - that is reserved for Christianity or other sites.

Welcome to BH.SE! Please take our site tour. and check out what makes us different from other sites that study the Bible. We don't do 'Bible study'—we study the Bible. That means we stop short of application when answering questions about the Bible (which means we don't fully exegete the text in the religious sense of the practice). Questions should be focused solely on the text and not primarily on those things to which the text applies.
