proverbs [allegories]: It is owing, I presume, to the large and various meaning of the Hebrew משל that we have in Greek παροιμία as well as παραβολὴ used correspondingly not only in the LXX. but in the New Testament, the Synoptic Gospels always using the latter, John only the former as in chapter 10 and here. Perhaps "allegory" might be more appropriate, or even a "dark saying" in our chapter where parable or allegory can scarcely apply. A close examination of the usage will prove that both Greek words are employed with considerable latitude in the four Gospels as elsewhere. Here the Lord was conscious that what He uttered fell like enigmas on the ears of the disciples. (Exp. of John, p.341-2)
proverbs [allegories]: if "dark-sayings," so also in 10:7. (Bible Treasury 14:336)
report: א A B Cpm D K L M N X Y Π, ἀπαγγ. "report"; others, ἀναγγ. "announce" as in vers. 13, 14, 15. (Exp. of John, p.341)
