Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In Colossians 2:8, the only place where the verb occurs in the NT, Field (Notes, p. 195) prefers the translation ";rob"; to the RV ";make spoil of,"; on the ground that the latter suggests ";the idea of the Colossians themselves being carried off, instead of their (spiritual) treasures,"; and by way of illustration he points to Aristaen. Ep. II. 22 τοῦτον κατέλαβον, ἄνερ, ἐγχειροῦσα συλαγωγῆσαι τὸν ἡμέτερον οἶκον. But the R V rendering may find support from Heliodor. 10. 35 p. 307 Bekker οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ τὴν ἐμὴν θυγατέρα συλαγωγήσας (cited by Dibelius HZNT ad l.).
