Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἔνι equivalent to ἔνι, the accent being thrown back, same as ἐν, used adverbially (Winer's Grammar, § 50, 7 N. 2) for ἐνεστι, is in, is among, has place, is present (Homer, Odyssey 21, 218; Thucydides 2, 40): Galatians 3:28 (three times); Colossians 3:11; James 1:17; with addition of ἐν ὑμῖν, 1 Corinthians 6:5 (where Rec. ἐστιν); in secular authors from Sophocles and Thucydides on very often, it can be, is possible, is lawful; (here some would place James, the passage cited). The opinion of many (e. g. Fritzsche on Mark, p. 642; Meyer on Galatians, the passage cited; cf. Ellicott ibid.) that ἔνι is a contracted form for ἐνεστι is opposed by the like use of παρά, ἀνά, which can hardly be supposed to be contracted from πάρεστι, ἀνεστι; cf. Krüger, § 9, 11, 4; Winers Grammar, 80 (77); Göttling, Lehre v., Accent etc., p. 380; (Chandler § 917f; Buttmann, 72 (64); Lob. Path. Element. ii. 315).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

BGU IV. 1141.8 (B.C. 14) ὅτι δὲ ἐν τῇ πρώτῃ μου ἐπιστολῇ οὐθὲν ἁμάρτημα ἔνει (l. ἔνι), P Oxy IX. 1218.5 (iii/A.D.) οὐδὲν δύσκολον ἔνι ἐπὶ τῆς οἰκίας σου. In P Iand 11.8 (iii/A.D.) ὅτι ἀπρ ]ε ̣πιά ἐστιν καὶ οὐκ ἔνι, the editor renders οὐκ ἔνι ";fieri non potest,"; and compares P Strass I. 35.19 (iv/v A.D.) φρόντ [ι ]σόν μου δὲ περὶ τῶν ἐλεω ̣ν ̣ . . ., ἐπιδὴ ἐν Ἀλεξανδρίᾳ οὐκ ἔνει. The above exx. show ἔνι = ἔνεστι, and practically equivalent in meaning to the simple ἐστί, cf. Sirach 37:2, 4 Maccabees 4:22, and see Thackeray Gr. i. p. 257. The form ἔνι is regarded as the prep. ἐνί, the Ionic form of ἐν, ";strengthened by a more vigorous accent, like ἔπι, πάρα, and used with an ellipsis of the substantive verb"; (Lightfoot on Galatians 3:28; cf. Hort on James 1:17). See also Boisacq, p. 247 n..2, Dieterich Untersuch. p. 225.
