Luke 6:48 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Digged deep (ἔσκαψεν καὶ ἐβάθυνεν)

The A. V. regards the two words as a strong expression of a single idea; but the idea is twofold: he dug (through the sand), and deepened down into the solid rock. So Rev., rightly, he digged and went deep.

The flood (πλημμύρας)

There is no article: a flood. The word occurs in Luke only, and only in this passage. As a medical term it is used of excess of fluids in the body: flooding.

Beat vehemently (προσέῤῥηξεν)

Rev., more literally, brake. Used by physicians of a rupture of the veins. It occurs only here and Luke 6:49. Matthew has προσέκοψαν, beat.
