buf´et ( κολαφίζω , kolaphı́zō , "to beat with the fist"): Refers to bodily maltreatment and violence: "Then did they spit in his face and buffet him" (Matthew 26:67 ; Mark 14:65 ; 1 Corinthians 4:11 ; 1 Peter 2:20 ). Paul speaks of "a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to buffet me" (2 Corinthians 12:7 ). Used figuratively of self-control: "I buffet (the King James Version keep under , the Revised Version, margin "bruise") my body, and bring it into bondage" (1 Corinthians 9:27 ). The Greek in this passage reads ὑπωπιάζω , hupōpiázō , literally "to give a blow beneath the eye." In Luke 18:5 the same word is rendered "wear out": "Lest she wear roe out by her continual coming" (the King James Version "weary me" the Revised Version, margin "bruise me") (see Pape's Lexicon , under the word).
