Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the literal sense ";wear,"; ";carry,"; c. acc., as in Acts 28:20 (cf. 4 Maccabees 12:3), cf. OGIS 56.67 (B.C. 238) περικειμένων τὰς ἰδίας βασιλείας (";diadems"; ) (cited by Mayser Gr. p. 34). The metaphorical usage is seen in the illiterate P Lond 1926.12 (mid. iv/A.D.), where a certain Valeria asks for Paphnutius’s prayers—μεγάλῳ γὰρ νόσῳ περίκιμε δυσπνήας δινῆς (l. περίκειμαι δυσπνοίας δεινῆς), ";for I am afflicted with a great disease in the shape of a grievous shortness of breath"; (Bell) : cf. Hebrews 5:2, and from literary sources Theocritus xxiii. 13 f. φεῦγε δ᾽ ἀπὸ χρὼς | ὕβριν τᾶς ὀργᾶς περικείμενος, Anth. Pal. xi. 38 πῖνε καὶ ἔσθιε καὶ περικεῖσο ἄνθεα.
