Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This poetic and late prose form of πειράω (q.v.), even when used in the general sense of ";try,"; ";test,"; has always the idea of probation associated with it : see the instances cited by Hort ad James 1:2, especially Plut. Moralia 15, p. 230a where ";Namertes being congratulated on the multitude of his friends asked the spokesman εἰ δοκίμιον ἔχει τίνι τρόπῳ πειράζεται ὁ πολύφιλος; and when a desire was expressed to know he said Ἀτυχίᾳ."; For a more sinister sense cf. Vett. Val. p. 17.6 καθόλου δὲ κακεντρεχῶν τῇ διανοίᾳ, μάλιστα κατὰ τῶν πειραζόντων ἢ τῶν πονηρὰ δρώντων.

The Biblical usage is fully discussed by Hort l.c. See also Kennedy Sources, p. 106 f., and the exx. from late Greek in Anz Subsidia, p. 274. MGr πειράζω (Thumb Hellen. p. 218).
