a term of the deepest opprobrium, drawn from the ";rinsing"; of a dirty vessel. In the only place in which it occurs in the NT, 1 Corinthians 4:13, there may be some reference to the fact that it was the most wretched and outcast, who used to be sacrificed as expiatory offerings : cf. Proverbs 21:11 and Epict. iii. 22. 78. ";Possibly some cry of this sort, anticipating the ‘Christiani ad leones’ of the martyrdoms, had been raised against P(aul) by the Ephesian populace (cf. xv. 32; also Acts xxii. 22)"; (Findlay EGT ad 1 Corinthians 4:13). The word is fully illustrated by Wetstein ad l.c. : see also Lietzmann in HZNT.
The verb (Deuteronomy 18:10) is found in Didache iii. 4 μηδὲ ἐπαοιδὸς μηδὲ μαθηματικὸς μηδὲ περικαθαίρων.
