Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the meaning ";coast along"; in Acts 27:8, Field (Notes, p. 143 f.) cites Diod. Sic. xiii. 3 κἀκεῖθεν ἤδη παρελέγοντο τὴν Ἰταλίαν, xiv. 55 αἱ δὲ τριήρεις ἔπλευσαν εἰς τὴν Λιβύην, παρελέγοντο δὲ τὴν γῆν. In BGU II. 665ii. 14 (i/A.D.) ἐνε ̣τ ̣είλατο γὰρ θέων πα ̣ρ ̣α ̣[λ ]έγων, the verb seems to refer to casual, incidental speech.
