Vocabulary of the Greek NT

literally ";fist"; (Suid : σύγκλεισις δακτύλων) : cf. the cognate pugnus, pungo. pitgio (Boisacq, p. 827). We are unable to throw any light from our sources on the difficult πυγμῇ of Mark 7:3 B, for which א substitutes πυκνά (Vg crebro), but we may quote Palladius Hist. Lausiaca c. 55 νίψασθαι τὰς χεῖρας καὶ τοὺς πόδας πυγμῇ ὕδατι ψυχροτάτῳ, to which our attention has been drawn. According to Schulthess (ZNTW xxi. (1922) p. 233) the expression is best explained as a lightening of the regular ritualistic washing, by a simple rubbing over with the hand, or a dry washing. For such a practice, under the name of חפף, he refers to Krauss Archäol. I. 210, 269 N. 6. The Islamic custom of ablution with dust or sand when water cannot be procured is described in Hughes’ Dict, of Islam s.v. ";Ablution"; or ";Tayammum.";
