Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Moulton (Proleg. p. 237) claims the use of this verb in 2 Corinthians 4:8 as a good ex. of the ";perfectivising"; of an imperfective verb, the perfective ἐξ showing ";the ἀπορία in its final result of despair."; The verb is used in a weaker sense in P Eleph 2.10 (B.C. 285–4) where, amongst other testamentary dispositions, provision is made that if the parents are in want of anything—ἐὰν δέ τι ἐξαπορῶνται —they are to be provided for by their sons. In Syll 226.12 (iii/B.C.) it is used of the exhaustion of the public resources of Olbia—τῶν δὲ κοινῶν ἐξηπορημένων.
