Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With this verb in 2 Corinthians 10:12 Nägeli (p. 56) compares the use in the inscrr. . εἰς τοὺς ἐφήβους, ";enroll,"; as CIG II. 2715a. .11 (c. A.D. 20), IG VII. 29.6 (iii/ii B.C.). The Alexandrian critics of the third and second centuries B.C. employed it to mark out or select the best writers, as when the orator Deinarchus is described by Suidas as τῶν μετὰ Δημοσθένους ἐγκριθέντων εῖς : see Companion to Greek Studies, p. 147. For the subst. cf. Syll 278.16 (ii/B.C.) στοχαζομένων ὑμῶν ἐκ τῶν ὑπ᾽ ἐμοῦ γεγραμμένων ἐγκρίσεων.
