Circumspectly & Redeeming

The study on this page deals primarily with the word:  circumspectly.

There is a Sermon (#2079) and some word studies from the Greek dictionary.

See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
Ephesians 5:15-17.

This Sermon is number 2079.2079

Circumspectly: Greek word: ἀκριβῶς 199. Akribós. #199 akribṓs (from akribes, “the high point, extreme,” see #195/akríbeia, “highly accurate”) – properly, extremely accurate, very exact; “more (very) accurate” because researched down to the finest detail (“factually precise”).

This root (akrib-) refers to gaining exact information with the highest level of accuracy (“exactness”) and is acquired by probing investigation to provide a comprehensive circumspect (precise) view in strict adherence to the facts.

[“The verb is formed from akros, ‘at the point’ or ‘end.’ The idea is, therefore, he ‘ascertained to the last point’; denoting the exactness of the information rather than the diligence of the search for it” (WS, 21).]

Redeeming: Greek word: ἐξαγοράζω #1805 eksagorázō (from 1537 /ek, “completely out from” which intensifies #59 /agorázō, “buy-up at the marketplace”) – properly, take full advantage of, seizing a buying-opportunity, i.e. making the most of the present opportunity (recognizing its future gain).
