Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A new citation for this verb, which is found only twice (Luke 10:6, Romans 2:17) in the NT, may be given from Didache 4.2 ἐκζητήσεις δὲ καθ᾽ ἡμέραν τὰ πρόσωπα τῶν ἁγίων, ἵνα ἐπαναπαῇς τοῖς λόγοις αὐτῶν, ";that you may be refreshed by their words,"; where the form of the 2nd aor. pass, ἐπαναπαῇς recalls the fut. ἐπαναπαήσεται read by אB in Lk l.c. (cf. also ἀναπαήσονται in Revelation 14:13).
