Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this characteristically Lukan word cf. the Leiden occult papyrus W xvi. 8 f. εἰσελθόντος δὲ τοῦ θεοῦ μὴ ἐνατένιζε τῇ ὄψει , ἀλλὰ τῆς (l. τοῖς ) ποσί . The intensive meaning, which underlies the NT usage, comes out in the description of Thecla’s rapt attention to Paul’s teaching—ἀτενίζουσα ὡς πρὸς εὐφρασίαν (Acta Pauli viii.).
