Specially

(me’odh (Ps 31:11 the [[King James Version]]); malista): Used in an emphatic sense; derived from a superlative. While usually employed for emphasis, it carries with it slightly the idea of something additional. Not used in the [[Old Testament]] in the [[Revised Version]] (British and American), the sense of the Hebrew being,,expressed more clearly by "exceedingly," "very." Its ordinary [[New Testament]] usage is, "mostly," "particularly," "chiefly" or, "most of all." Paul in his practical exhortations says: "But if any provideth not for his own, and specially his own household, he hath denied the faith (1Ti 5:8; compare Ga 6:10; 1Ti 4:10). Walter G. Clippinger
