(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Mocking (diachleuazontes). Old verb, but only here in the N.T., though the simple verb (without dia) in Act 17:32. Chleuē means a joke.

With new wine (gleukous). Sweet wine, but intoxicating. Sweet wine kept a year was very intoxicating. Genitive case here after memestōmenoi eisin (periphrastic perfect passive indicative), old verb mestoō, only here in the N.T. Tanked up with new wine, state of fulness.
