Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In Acts 16:22 περιρρήξαντες is generally understood (AV, RV) of ";stripping off"; the garments of the prisoners in preparation for a beating (cf. 2 Maccabees 4:38). Ramsay, however, refers the action to the Praetors themselves, ";rent their clothes in loyal horror, with the fussy, consequential airs that Horace satirises in the would-be Praetor of a country town (Sat. I. 5, 34)"; (Paul, p. 219). The verb is thus taken as practically synonymous with the well-known διαρρήσσω with ἱμάτια, χιτῶνας (Matthew 26:65, al.), as expressive of a gesture of horror. In support of this rendering Mr. K. L. Clarke kindly refers us to Acta Thomae 63 (Lipsius-Bonnet II. ii. 180) τὴν ἐσθῆτα περιέρρηξα καὶ τὰς χεῖρας ἐπὶ τὴν ὄψιν ἐπάταξα, and cites Cyril’s note on Acts 14:14 ἔθος ἐστὶν Ἰουδαίοις ἐπὶ ταῖς κατὰ θεοῦ δυσφημίαις περιρηγνύναι τὰ ἱμάτια (Cramer’s Catena in loc.).
