Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This Hellenized form, derived from the Heb. גֵּיהִנֹּם by dropping the m, is one of those ";specific Jewish ideas"; (Thumb Hellen. p. 118) which naturally we cannot illustrate from our sources. We may cite Orac. Sib. I. 103 εἰς γέεναν μαλεροῦ λάβρου πυρὸς ἀκαμάτοιο : the spelling here demanded by the metre is found in Mark 9:47 D, ib. .45 E al.
