Title: Subtel contradiction in Luke 19:8
Post by: Psalm 51:17 on August 25, 2017, 05:28:50 pm
(KJB) Luke 19:8  And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.

(NIV) Luke 19:8 But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.”

false accusation vs cheat - BIG difference!


CHEAT, verb transitive

2. To deceive by any artifice, trick or device, with a view to gain an advantage contrary to common honesty; as, to cheat a person at cards.

3. To impose on; to trick. It is followed by of or out of, and colloquially by into, as to cheat a child into a belief that a medicine is palatable.

2. A person who cheats; one guilty of fraud by deceitful practices.


ACCU'SE, verb transitive [Latin accuso, to blame or accuse; ad and causor, to blame, or accuse; causa, blame, suit, or process, cause. See Cause.]

1. To charge with, or declare to have committed a crime, either by plaint, or complaint, information, indictment, or impeachment; to charge with an offense against the laws, judicially or by a public process; as, to accuse one of a high crime or misdemeanor.

Their thoughts, in the meanwhile, accusing or excusing one another. Romans 2:15.

It is followed by of before the subject of accusation; the use of for after this verb is illegitimate.
