Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the metaphorical use of this verb in Romans 1:27 we may cite the new Menander fragment, Menandrea p. 64.42 πάντα δ᾽ ἐξεκάετο ταῦθ᾽ ἕνεκα τοῦ μέλλοντος, ";all these feelings were fanned into flame for the sake of the plot."; See also Herodas iv. 49 where a slave is rebuked for her slowness—ὡς ἔκ με κάεις οὐ θέλουσαν οἰδῆσαι, ";how you set me on fire with fury, little as I wish to rage.";
