For this adj., which in the NT is confined to 1 Corinthians 5:11; 1 Corinthians 6:10, we may cite Cagnat I. 307.3 (Rome), where a certain Menophilus is described as—οὐδένα λυπήσας, οὐ λοίδορα ῥήματα πέμψας. Cf. also Test. xii. patr. Benj. v. 4 ἐὰν γὰρ ὑβρίσει ἄνδρα ὅσιον μετανοεῖ, ἐλεεῖ γὰρ ὁ ὅσιος τὸν λοίδωρον καὶ σιωπᾷ, ";for if any one does violence to a holy man, he repenteth; for the holy man is merciful to his reviler, and holdeth his peace"; (Charles).
