Vocabulary of the Greek NT

On this word, taken in the sense of Deuteronomy 23:1 (supported by several instances in literary Κοινή —see Grimm-Thayer) Nägeli has some good remarks (p. 78 f.) : he brings together several phrases which show Paul using a more vernacular style in Gal than anywhere else, the startling passage 5.12 being the climax—";Der zürnende Apostel lässt auch seiner Wortwahl freien Lauf; die stärksten Ausdrücke der Umgangsprache sind etzt die geeignetsten."; Cf. Proleg. pp. 163, 201.
