I heard that quite a few Asian translations interpret power here as "strength". But this isn't what in my mind. I look up the dictionary. Which meaning does it really fits? a) the ability or authority to control people or events e.g. The chairman has no power over the final decisions. b) the ability to influence people's feelings e.g. the immense power of television. e.g. consumer power. c) the ability to do something that others couldn't e.g. Sherlock Holmes' powers of observation e.g. a stone with magical powers d) energy, force. e.g. The ferry was able to leave port under its own power. P.S. I realise this cliche is originally in Latin "nam et ipsa scientia potestas est", quoted from Francis Bacon where he makes a point about God has power of knowing rather than power of acting.
