Vocabulary of the Greek NT

To Hobart’s (p. 37) medical instances of this rare verb, which is confined in the NT to Lk (Acts 5:5; Acts 5:10; Acts 12:23), we may now add Herodas iv. 29 οὐκ ἐρεῖς αὐτήν, | ἢν μὴ λάβῃ τὸ μῆλον, ἐκ τάχα ψύξειν, where the tmesis gives a gasping effect that suits the sense admirably. MGr ξεψύχω.
