Feminine of a compound of G4948 and the same as G5403

Thayer's Expanded Definition

Συροφοινίσσα (so Rec.; a form quite harmonizing with the analogies of the language, for as Κίλιξ forms the feminine Κιλισσα, Θράξ the feminine Θρᾷσσα, ἄναξ the feminine ἄνασσα, so the feminine of Φοῖνιξ is always, by the Greeks, called Φοίνισσα), Συροφοινίκισσα (so L T WH; hardly a pure form, and one which must be derived from Φοινίκη; cf. Fritzsche on Mark, p. 296f; Winer's Grammar, 95 (91)), Συραφοινίκισσα (Griesbach; a form which conflicts with the law of composition), Συραφοινικισσης, (Tr WH marginal reading Σύρα Φοινίκισσα), a Syrophoenician woman, i. e. of Syrophoenice by race, that is, from the Phoenice forming a part of Syria (Συρο being prefixed for distinction's sake, for there were also Λιβυφοινικες, i. e. the Carthaginians. The Greeks included both Phoenicia and Palestine under the name Συρία; hence, Συρία Παλαιστινη in Herodotus 3, 91; 4, 39; Justin Martyr, Apology 1:1; and Φοινίκη Συρία, Diodorus 19, 93; Συροφοινικη, Justin Martyr, dialog contra Trypho,

c. 78, p. 305 a.): Mark 7:26 (cf. B. D. under the word ). (The masculine Συροφοῖνιξ is found in Lucian, concil. deor. c. 4; (Syrophoenix in Juvenal, sat. 8, 159 (cf. 160)).)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

τελείως is found in the NT only in 1 Peter 1:13 νήφοντες τελείως, where Hort Comm. ad l. understands the phrase to mean ";being sober with a perfect sobriety,"; a sobriety ";entering into all their thoughts and ways,"; ";the opposite of heedless drifting as in a mist."; Cf. the fragmentary P Petr III. 42 H(8c).3 (iii/B.C.) τελείως ποιήσεις, P Flor I. 93.27 (deed of divorce—A.D. 569) ἐξηλλάχθαι πρὸς ἀλλήλους καὶ διαλελύσθαι ἐντόνως καὶ τελείω ̣̓, and the Christian amulet BGU III. 954.30 (c. vi/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 134) ending Ἅγιε Σέρηνε, πρόσπεσε ὑπὲρ ἐμοῦ, ἵνα τελείως ὑγιανῶ, ";O holy Serenus, supplicate on my behalf, that I may be in perfect health."; In MGr the adv. has the form τέλεια.

[Supplemental from 1930 edition]

Add P Oxy XVI. 1837.9 (early vi/A.D.) ἵνα τελίος (l. τελείως) ἀσχημονήσῃ ";in order that there may be no bounds to his disgraceful behaviour"; (Edd.).
