ἀδημονεìω

ἀδημονέω, to be sorely troubled or dismayed, be in anguish, Hp. Virg. 1; ἀδημονῶν τε καὶ ἀπορῶν Pl. Tht. 175d, cf. D. 19.197; ἀδημονῆσαι τὰς ψυχάς X. HG 4.4.3: c. dat. rei, ἀδημονεῖ τᾗ ἀτοπίᾳ τοῦ πάθους Pl. Phdr. 251d; ὑπό τινος to be puzzled by.., Epicur. Nat. 11.8; ἐπί τινι D.H. 3.70; χάριν τινός POxy. 298.45 (i A.D.). (Eust., 833.15, derives it from ἀδήμων, which is found only as v.l. in Hp. Epid. 1.18 (cf. Gal. 17 (1).177), and is itself of doubtful derivation.) [ ᾰδ- Nic. Fr. 16.]

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Lightfoot’s translation of ἀδημονῶν, ";distressed,"; in Philippians 2:26, is borne out by P Oxy II. 298.45 f. (i/A.D.) λίαν ἀδημονοῦμεν χάρ [ι ]ν τῆς θρεπτῆς Σαραποῦτος, where the editors render, ";I am excessively concerned on account of the foster-child Sarapous."; Towards the etymology of this word, T.W. Allen (CR xx. p. 5) traces an adj. δήμων in the Iliad (M 213), with the meaning ";knowing"; ";prudent,"; so that ἀδημονεῖν would suggest originally bewilderment. The adj. must be independent of δαήμων, though ultimately from the same root (dens, as in δέδαε, Skt dasmáḥ : cf. Boisacq Dict. Etym., p. 168).
