Proverb (παροιμία paroimia)

I have spoken these things to you in proverbs. The hour is coming when I will no longer speak to you in proverbs; instead, I will announce to you plainly from the Father. (Jhn 16:25)

Ταῦτα ἐν παροιμίαις λελάληκα ὑμῖν· ἔρχεται ὥρα ὅτε οὐκέτι ἐν παροιμίαις λαλήσω ὑμῖν ἀλλὰ παρρησίᾳ περὶ τοῦ πατρὸς ἀπαγγελῶ ὑμῖν.

Hæc in proverbiis locutus sum vobis. Venit hora cum iam non in proverbiis loquar vobis, sed palam de Patre annunciabo vobis.
