Winers Grammar, 187 (176)); purpose, design: Matthew 15:19; Mark 7:21.

2. a deliberating, questioning, about what is true: Luke 24:38; when in reference to what ought to be done, hesitation, doubting: χωρίς γογγυσμῶν καί διαλογισμῶν, Philippians 2:14 (`γογγυσμῶν is the moral, διαλογισμῶν the intellectual rebellion against God' Lightfoot); χωρίς ὀργῆς καί διαλογισμοῦ, 1 Timothy 2:8; (in the last two passages others still advocate the rendering disputing; yet cf. Meyer on Philippians the passage cited).
