Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This verb, which is very common in the LXX and occurs ter in the NT (Matthew 16:18, Luke 21:36, Luke 23:23), is construed with the ace. in P Leid Wxviii. 3 (ii/iii A.D.) οὐ κατισχύσει με ἅπας δρὰξ κινουμένη, ";non valebit adversus me omnis pugillus motus";(E.d.), much in the same sense as with the gen. in Mt l.c. : cf. also Aristeas 21 τοῦ θεοῦ κατισχύοντος αὐτόν, 230. See Anz Subsidia, p. 295 f., and Durham Menander, p. 70. The verb survives in MGr in the sense ";prevail,"; ";gain the mastery over.";
