I'm reading a devotional book which disects the compound verb
"hUPO AKOUO". The author says the real meaning of the word is to
hear under. So therefore obedience involves listening attentively with a
heart of compliant submission and, then, obeying His word.

This doesn't strike me as a sound approach to the text.  What input can
you give on this approach?

Thanks for your assistance.
