according to: why pass over the mistaken text of the Revisers, following the Authorized Version in 15? The marginal is more right, ‘΄Αγ. being not a predicate but the virtual substantive of the phrase, "after the pattern of," or according to, "the Holy one that called you." (Bible Treasury 15:63)
conduct: "Conduct" answers to the early meaning of "conversation," which is antiquated and nearly obsolete, being now confined to free interchange of speech. It is strange that Johnson, Richardson, etc., ignore this, the uniform sense in the A.V. of O. and N.T., i.e. "behavior," "conduct," "course," or "practical life." Webster edited by Goodrich and the Century Dict. give it as the first sense of the word. (Epist. of Peter, p.73)
