Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In Isaiah 58:7 Aquila substitutes ἀστατοῦντας for LXX ἀστέγους , while in Genesis 4:12 Symmachus translates נָע וָנָד ";a fugitive and a vagabond"; by ἀνάστατος καὶ ἀκατάστατος . There would seem therefore to be a certain degree of ";unsettlement"; associated with the word; and accordingly Field (Notes, p. 170) proposes to render 1 Corinthians 4:11 καὶ ἀστατοῦμεν by ";and are vagabonds,"; or ";and lead a vagabond life."; Grimm gives no profane warrant but a passage in the Anthology. We can add Vettius Valens, p.116.30 : the entrance of Mercury into a certain horoscope will produce πρακτικοὶ . . . καὶ εὐεπίβολοι καὶ φρόνιμοι καὶ ἐπαφρόδιτοι , πολύκοιτοι δὲ καὶ ἐπὶ πολὺ ἀστατοῦντες περὶ τοὺς γάμους , ";very inconstant."; He has the adj. p. 57.6 ἄστατος καὶ ἐπίφοβος διάξει ";he will live an unsettled life and liable to panic."; It occurs also in Epicurus 65.10 τὴν δὲ τύχην ἄστατον ὁρᾶν (Linde Epic. p. 36, where literary parallels are given).
