Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The use of the verb in the passage from Chrest. I. 16 cited s.v. ἡττάομαι may help to strengthen Field’s contention (Notes, pp. 160 f., 171 f.) that both in Romans 11:12 and in 1 Corinthians 6:7, the thought of ";defeat"; is present without any special ethical tinge. The subst. is found elsewhere in Bibl. Greek only in Isaiah 31:8.
