Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Hort (ad Jas I.11) has shown that this word, which in the pass, ";denoted originally the dying out of a fire"; (cf. Arist. de vita et morte 5, and see P Leid Wvii. 44 (ii/iii A.D.) πῦρ. . καὶ μαραινόμενον, καὶ μὴ μαραίμενον), came to be used of many kinds of enfeeblement and decay. Hence its frequent occurrence in sepulchral epitaphs, e.g. Kaibel 201.2 (i/B.C.) [φν ]ως γὰρ | ἁρπάξας σ᾽ Ἀίδας σὰν ἐμάρανεν ἀκμάν, and the later ib. 368.4 ἄνθεα πάντα φύουσιν, κάλλος δὲ τὸ σὸν μεμάρανται, .7 Θεοδώρα, κλάδος ἐλέας, τάχυ πῶς ἐμαράνθης; Cf. also the Senthianic imprecatory tablet 16.64 (Leipzig, 1898, p. 18) μαραίνετε. . : τὴν ψυχὴν. . . Καρδήλου. . . εἴσω ἡμερῶν πέντε (quoted by Wiinsch in Bliss and Macalister Excavations in Palestine(1902), p. 168). For traces of the application of the verb to plants in classical Greek, as in James 1:11, see again Hort’s note ad l., where reference is also made to Wisdom of Solomon 2:8, Job 24:24.
