Romans 9:2 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Heaviness, sorrow (λύπη ὀδύνη)

Heaviness, so Wyc. and Tynd., in the earlier sense of sorrow. So Chaucer:

"Who feeleth double sorrow and heaviness

But Palamon?"

"Knight's Tale," 1456

Shakespeare:

"I am here, brother, full of heaviness."

2 "Henry IV.," iv., 5, 8

Rev., sorrow. Ὁδύνη is better rendered pain. Some derive it from the root ed eat, as indicating, consuming pain. Compare Horace, curae edares devouring cares. Only here and 1 Timothy 6:10.

Heart

See on Romans 1:21.
