Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this verb in its literal sense cf. P Tebt I. 49.6 (B.C. 113) Νίκωνος. . . ἐγλύοντος τ [ ] ἐν τῆι ἑαυτοῦ γῆι ὕδατα, ";when Nicon let out the water on his own land,"; ib. 54.16 (B.C. 86) ἐπὶ τὸν δ [ια ]σαφούμενόν μου κλῆρον ἐγλέλυκαν τὰ ἐκ τῆς γῆς αὐτῶν ὕδατα. The metaph. meaning, which alone is found in the NT, may be illustrated by Vett. Val. p. 18.23 πονηρῶν ἀνθρώπων ἀδρανῶν καὶ ἐκλελυμένων. For the corresponding subst., see ib. p. 166.2 ἔκλυσιν ψυχῆς μεγίστην ἕξει. Cf. MGr γλυτώνω, ";rescue,"; ";escape,"; and ξεγλυτώνω, ";finish a work,"; ";am freed from work.";
