Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";play the braggart,"; which meets us first in 1 Corinthians 13:4, occurs later in M. Anton, v. 5, where it is associated with ἀρεσκεύομαι, ";play the toady."; Mr. W. K. L. Clarke kindly supplies us with a reference to Basil Regulae xlix. 423 A : τί ἐστὶ τὸ περπερεύεσθαι; πᾶν ὃ μὴ διὰ χρείαν, ἀλλὰ διὰ καλλωπισμὸν παραλαμβάνεται, περπερείας ἔχει κατηγορίαν. The compd. ἐνπερπερεύομαι is found in nearly the same sense in Cic. ad Att. i. 14. 4 : cf. also Epict. ii. 1. 34. For the connexion of the verb with pa̯pti, ";puff up,"; see Boisacq, p. 774.
