This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 8:2. Ἐιδέναι, that he knows) This has respect to the “we know,” 1Co 8:1; it differs from to be acquainted with.[63]-τὶ, anything. Paul makes some small concession here; comp. the following clause.-οὒπω, not yet) like a novice.-καθὼς, as [in the way that]) namely in the way of love, [taught] by God.

[63] The Latin synonyms are scire and cognoscere. Scire, to know, to be skilful in, chiefly applied to things; cognoscere, to know, to become acquainted with persons or things formerly unknown; however, ἐγνωκέναι is the reading of ABD (A) G f (cognovisse). Εἰδέναι of Rec. Text is supported by Vulg. (scire) Cypr. Hil.-ED.
