In Acts 3:23, from LXX Deuteronomy 18:19, WH read ἐξολεθρευθήσεται in accordance with the preponderant evidence of the LXX uncials. The other spelling has survived in MGr ξολοθρεύω : see Thackeray Gr. i. p. 87 f. As showing the strength of the verb we may cite Pelagia-Legenden, pp. 23.15 εἰσαγαγεῖν σε ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ μου οὐ τολμῶ, μή πως ἀκούσῃ ὁ ὁρμαστός σου καὶ παγγενῆ με ἐξολοθρεύσῃ, 24.18 ἄγγελον ἐξαποστελεῖ καὶ ἐξολοθρεύσει πᾶσαν τὴν στρατιάν.
