Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For a full discussion of this difficult word in 2 Peter 1:9 see Mayor Comm. ad I., where it is shown that the meaning is screw up the eyes in order to see, as a short-sighted man does, and consequently that μυωπάζω limits, rather than intensifies, the preceding τυφλός. Apart from the Petrine passage the only known instance of the verb in Greek literature is Ps. Dionys. Eccl. Hier. ii. 3, p. 219 (cited by Suicer), where after speaking of the Light which lighteth every man, he proceeds ";if a man of his own free will closes his eyes to the light, still the light is there shining upon the soul μυωπαζούσῃ καὶ ἀποστρεφομένῃ (blinking and turning away).";
