Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In its NT occurrences (1 Corinthians 10:13, 2 Timothy 3:11, 1 Peter 2:19) the word is used metaphorically = ";endure"; : cf. Preisigke 5238.22 (A.D. 12) οὐ δυνάμ ̣ε [νος ὑποφέ ]ρειν τὰς [αἰ ]κ [ε ]ίας ἀδικίας, and for the wider sense ";bear"; the use of the adj. ὑπόφορος with reference to corn-bearing land in ib. 5659.6 (A.D. 201). Other exx. of the verb are P Oxy III. 488.19 (ii/iii A.D.) ἐκ τούτου οὐκ ὀλίγην βλάπην ὑπ ̣οφέρει, ";in consequence he inflicts much loss upon me ";(Edd.), and P Flor III. 362.10 (iv/A.D.) ο ̣ὐ γὰρ αὐτο ̣, ς ὑποφέρω κίνησιν, ";for I do not set myself in motion.";
