Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";stand,"; a new present (MGr στέκω) from the perf. ἕστηκα, and retaining the same meaning : cf. Blass-Debrunner Gr. § 73, Psaltes Gr. p. 245. The idea of emphasis usually associated with the verb can hardly be pressed in view of the late Greek love for such forms : cf. Kaibel 970 (iii/A.D. ?) where it is interchanged with ἔστανεν (from the late σταίνω)—

]ς ποτε γυμνασίῳ Φιλήμονος ἔστανεν Ἑρμῆν

νῦν σ [τ ]ήκω κἀ [ι ]γὼ Τελέσφορος. . .
