The word anakrinó means to look at things and evaluate them. The scriptures are trying to get you to be a more perceptive witness, to see more.

It’s the word Pilate uses regarding Christ- “I have examined him before you…”

Notice the KJV uses ‘examine’ in that passage! (Luke 23:14).

Paul himself employs it in the sense of ‘to investigate’, ‘to examine’, ‘to inquire,’ and ‘to ask questions’ (1 Cor 9:3; 10:25, 27)…”

We’re here to perceive. God does the judging.
