Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This verb, which is rare outside the LXX (cf. 3 Ki. 18:27 [MT 1 Kings 18:27], 4Ki. 19:21 [MT 2 Kings 19:21]), and means properly ";turn up the nose"; as a sign of contempt, ";ridicule"; (see Or. Sib. i. 171 cited s.v, μαίνομαι) is found in the NT only in Galatians 6:7 θεὸς οὐ μυκτηρίζεται, where perhaps we may translate ";God is not deceived,"; or ";outwitted"; by an easy metonymy, he who is outwitted being thereby made ridiculous (Burton ICC ad l.) : cf. the remark of Pollux (Kock III. p. 257, Fr. 1039) to the effect that Menander used μυκτηρισμός for ἐξαπάτη. Cf. Menander Fragm. p. 172, and Durham Voc. p. 80.

For μυκτήρ in its literal sense of ";nose,"; ";nostril,"; cf. the medical recipe P Oxy VIII. 1088.21 (early i/A.D.) αἷμα ἀπὸ μυκτήρων στῆσαι, ";to stop nose-bleeding,"; also 26, 32, 35
