Default Re: About “pro multis”

I am a competent authority on what Latin and Greek words mean, and I looked up both words in the authoritative, standard, scholarly Greek and Latin dictionaries and read the quite lengthy entries.

So sorry Bear, but this is open and shut. I'm right; you're wrong.

Polus...much, many, large, great, wide, of great consequence, more than a few, many men, sometimes very much, very many...

Gee...sorry, Bear. As said above, you're wrong.

Multus...many people, many, many a, the many, many things, to a great extent, much, something of value, importance, see also plus, plurimus, multum...

Gee...sorry, Bear. As said above, you're wrong.
