King James Dictionary [2]

Concerning ppr. Pertaining to regarding having relation to.

The Lord hath spoken good concerning Israel.  Numbers 10 .

I have accepted thee concerning this thing.  Genesis 19 .

This word has been considered a preposition, but most improperly concerning, when so called, refers to a verb, sentence or proposition as in the first example, the word applies to the preceding afirmation. The Lord hath spoken good, which speaking good is concerning Israel. Concerning, in this case, refers to the first clause of the sentence.

( Matthew 19:17 ) instead of "Why callest thou me good?" (different text; see the Revised Version, margin).
