Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This rare word is used in the apocryphal Acta Pauli iii. of Onesiphorus on the outskirts of Lystra ";waiting for"; Paul’s arrival from Iconium—εἱστήκει ἀπεκδεχόμενος αὐτόν. Nägeli (p. 43) and LS s.v. give late ";profane"; citations which make it perhaps possible that Paul was not the first to use a regularly formed perfective of ἐκδέχομαι, which becomes a favourite word with him : it also figures in 1 Pet and Heb, where of course borrowing from Paul is possible. But if late writers who never could have read him use the word, it is obviously conceivable that they coined it independently, as we may very probably suppose him to have done. See the next article.
