Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Apparently a Pauline coinage (Colossians 2:23) on the analogy of ἐθελοδουλεία : see Nägeli, p. 51 for other examples of new Christian word-formations, and cf. ἐθελοταπεινοφροσύνη, which Hort would restore in Colossians 2:18 for the almost unintelligible θέλων ἐν ταπεινοφροσύνῃ. See Moulton Gr. ii. § 108 B.
