Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the use of the simplex in connexion with the purchase or redemption of slaves, see s.v. ἀγοράζω. The similar use of the compound in Galatians 3:13; Galatians 4:5 suggests that in Ephesians 5:16, Colossians 4:5, the meaning is not so much ";buying up,"; ";making market to the full of"; the opportunity, as ";buying back (at the expense of personal watchfulness and self-denial) the present time, which is now being used for evil and godless purposes"; (Williams ad Col l. c. in CGT).
