As ab adverb it is commonly in the Old Testament the translation of me'odh, and in the New Testament represents, as adjective and adverb, several Greek words, as alethos, "truly" (Jn 7:26, above), autos (Jn 14:11, "the very works' sake"; Rom 13:6), sphodra (Mt 18:31, "very sorry," the Revised Version (British and American) "exceeding sorry"; Mk 16:4, "very great," the Revised Version (British and American) "exceeding"), huper- (in composition 1 Thess 5:13), etc. the Revised Version (British and American) frequently omits "very," and also substitutes other words for it, as "exceeding" (2 Ch 16:8; Mt 26:7; compare above), "sore" (Zec 9:5), etc.
