Not illustrated. 1859 edition. Excerpt: ...among men, whether (a) Jews (De W.); or (6) Jews and heathens (Meyer). Grammatical considerations seem in favour of (1); for oroix-a, in the sense rudimenta, would appear to require, as in Heb. v. 12, a gen. objecti, and not as here a gen. subjecti (see Neander I.e.); still Kbtrp.ov need not be considered a pure gen. subj., the connexion between the nom. and gen. being often somewhat lax; see Winer, Gr. 30. 2, p. 214 sq. Exegetical considerations must be also extended to ver. 9, and to Col. ii. 8, 20, where the same words occur. These we can only briefly notice. In Col. ii. 8, the parallelism with irapdSoffis T&v &vBpdirav, seems so distinct, and so palpably in favour of (2), as to outweigh the argument drawn by Schneckenb. from the supposed physical use of Kiff/ios in ver. 20. The use of the term (piXoaoipla seems also there to point slightly more to heahen rudiments (see notes in loc.), while on the contrary in Col. ii. 20, and below, verse 9, the reference seems mainly to Jewish rudiments. All these conflicting views being considered, we seem here justified in deciding in favour of (2), generally; assigning, however, to the words (as both ip.eU and the nature of the argument require) a primary, but by no means exclusive, reference to the Jews. For further notices of this doubtful ex pression, see Baur, Paulas, p. 594 sq., and for a defence of the physical meaning, Schneckenburg. in Theol. Jahrb. 1848, p. 444 sq., and Hilgenf.
