Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With this verb = ";preserve alive,"; as in 1 Timothy 6:18 (cf. Exodus 1:17, Judges 8:19), see the invocation addressed to the sun in the magic P Lond 121.529 (iii/A.D.) (= I. p. 101) κύριε θεὲ μέγιστε ὁ τὰ ὃλα συνέχων καὶ ζωογονῶν καὶ συνκρατῶν τὸν κόσμον. Hobart (p. 155) has shown that the verb is used to signify ";producing alive,"; ";enduing with life"; in medical writers : cf. Luke 17:33, Acts 7:19, where, however, the meaning is probably ";preserve alive,"; ut s. A form ζωγονέω is found in P Oxy IX. 1188.4 (A.D. 13) ἀπ [ ] ζωγονούση (ς) περσ (έας) κλάδους ξηρο (ὺς) δύο, ";two dry branches of a living perseatree"; (Ed.) : cf. .21, .23.
