Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The subst. ὑπώπιον, from which this verb is derived, denotes primarily ";the part of the face under the eyes,"; and hence ";a blow in the face,"; or ";a bruise"; generally : cf. P Lips I. 39.13 (A.D. 390) (= Chrest. II. p. 141), where a complaint is lodged of an attack—ὡς καὶ τὰ ὑπώπια ἔχω α ̣̓φ᾽ ὅλων τ ̣ῶν ὠ.[. . .] [καὶ ] τῶν π ̣ρ ̣ο ̣σ ̣[ . . . . . The verb is to be understood / ";treat severely"; in 1 Corinthians 9:27 (cf. Field Notes, p. 174). but passes into the meaning of ";weary"; in Luke 18:5 (cf. ib. p. 71). See also Lob. Phryn. p. 461.
