Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἀνθρωπάρεσκος, which starts in LXX and Pss. Sol., was presumably as much a coinage as our own ";men-pleasers,"; but made in a language where compounds are more at home than in ours. If this is a ";Bibl."; word, it is only an instance of the fact that every Greek writer made a new compound when his meaning required one. Lobeck on Phryn., p. 621, cites αὐτάρεσκος from Apoll. de Conjunct., p. 504.
