Vocabulary of the Greek NT

πίμπρημι, which in the NT is confined to Lk (Acts 28:6), is ";the usual medical word for inflammation,"; see Hobart p. 50, where exx. are quoted from Hippocrates, Aretaeus, and Galen, and cf. Field Notes, p. 149. Hence the RV rendering ";swell up"; in Ac l.c. In Syll 813 (= .3 1179).15 εἴ τι [ς ἄλλος ] τἀμὰ ἔχ [ει, πεπρη ]μένος ἐξ [αγορεύ ]ων, Dittenberger remarks that the force of πεπρημένος seems to be ";igni quodam intestino, veluti febri, homines scelestos vexari et confici.";
