κατενωìπιον

From G2596 and G1799

Thayer's Expanded Definition

κατενώπιον, adverb, not met with in secular authors ((Winers Grammar, 102 (97)) see ἐνώπιον), over against, opposite, before the face of, before the presence of, in the sight of, before: followed by the genitive (Buttmann, 319 (273f); cf. Winers Grammar, § 54,6);

a. properly, of place, Jude 1:24 (Leviticus 4:17; Joshua 1:5; Joshua 3:7; Joshua 23:9).

b. metaphorically, having one as it were before the eyes, before one as witness: τοῦ Θεοῦ, Rec. in 2 Corinthians 2:17; 2 Corinthians 12:19 (see κατέναντι); before God as judge, Ephesians 1:4; Colossians 1:22 (cf. Lightfoot, in the place cited; also Buttmann, 173, 180, 188).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

κατενώπιον, like κατέναντι, is to be removed from the category of Hebraistic constructions : see further s.v. ἐνώπιον. With its usage in Ephesians 1:4, Colossians 1:22, Judges 1:24 (cf. 2 Corinthians 2:17 A, 2 Corinthians 12:19 A) we may compare the sixth century Christian amulet BGU III. 954.6 (= Selections, p. 133) κλίνω τὴν κεφαλήν [μο ]υ κα <τ >ενώπιόν σου.
