2 Corinthians 11:33 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Through a window (διὰ θυρίδος)

Only here and Acts 20:9. Diminutive of θύρα a door. The same expression is used in Sept., Joshua 2:15, of the escape of the spies from Jericho, and 1 Samuel 19:12, of David's escape from Saul by the aid of Michal.

Basket (σαργάνῃ)

Lit., braided work; a rope-basket or hamper. Luke, in his narrative of the incident, uses σπυρίς, for which see on Matthew 14:20.
