Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";trial,"; is confined to Biblical Greek and literature founded on it, except Diosc. p. 3B τοὺς ἐπὶ τῶν παθῶν πειρασμούς, ";trials"; made of drugs to see their effect in certain diseases : cf. Hort ad James 1:2. In ZNTW x. (1909), p. 246 ff. de Zwaan has suggested that the reading τὸν πειρασμόν (without ὑμῶν or other addition) in Galatians 4:14 may be taken, on the analogy of MGr, as = ";the devil,"; ";the demonic power.";
