Vocabulary of the Greek NT

No instance of this Pauline word (Romans 1:27, 2 Corinthians 6:18) seems as yet to have been found outside Christian literature. This, however, may be wholly accidental; and there is certainly nothing in the word itself to exclude it from the ordinary terminology of the day : see for further examples of the same kind Nägeli p. 50 ff.
