kon - sid´ẽr  : In the New Testament the force of the word is brought out most vividly in  Matthew 6:26 ( καταμανθάνω , katamanthánō ), where it means to "examine closely," as though the observer had to bend down for this purpose, and in  Luke 12:27;  Hebrews 10:24 ( katanoéō , to "observe well"), while in  Hebrews 13:7 the anatheōréō , "look up toward" or "look again at" is consistent with the reverential regard commended in the context. Used in the Old Testament for a variety of Hebrew terms, signifying inspecting ( Proverbs 31:16 ), examining ( Leviticus 13:13 ), giving serious thoughts to ( Psalm 77:5;   Isaiah 1:3 ), it often means little more than "see" or "behold" ( Psalm 8:3;  Psalm 9:13 ).
