κατενώπιον, like κατέναντι, is to be removed from the category of Hebraistic constructions : see further s.v. ἐνώπιον. With its usage in Ephesians 1:4, Colossians 1:22, Judges 1:24 (cf. 2 Corinthians 2:17 A, 2 Corinthians 12:19 A) we may compare the sixth century Christian amulet BGU III. 954.6 (= Selections, p. 133) κλίνω τὴν κεφαλήν [μο ]υ κα <τ >ενώπιόν σου.
