Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This new present (Aristotle down), evolved out of the perf. ἐγρήγορα , is strongly condemned in Lob. Phryn. p. 118 f., cf. Rutherford NP, p. 200 f. It is frequent in the NT and is found in some, mainly late, books of the LXX (Thackeray Gr. i. p. 263). From it was formed the new verbal noun γρηγόρησις Dan TH. 5.11, .14 : cf. also the proper name Γρηγόριος . In MGr we have the adv. γλήγορα (γρήγορα ), ";quickly.";
