Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The special Biblical sense of this verb, ";work hard,"; ";toil,"; may perhaps be seen in Vett. Val. p. 266.6 ἱλαροὺς περὶ τὰς πράξεις καὶ μεθ᾽ ἡδονῆς κοπιῶντας. Lightfoot on Ignat. ad Polyc. vi. thinks that the notion of ";toilsome training"; for an athletic contest underlies the word, and cites Philippians 2:16, Colossians 1:29, 1 Timothy 4:10, in illustration; but it should be noted that the word can also be used without any such metaphorical reference, as in LXX 2 Kings 17:2 (MT 2 Samuel 17:2), Isaiah 49:4, Sirach 51:27 : see also Field Notes, p. 7. An uncommon usage is found in P Leid XV. 27 (iii/iv A.D.), where in a recipe for making silver the direction occurs—καὶ ἔμβαλε τὴν πίσσαν τὴν ξηράν, ἕως κοπιάσῃ, ";et inicito picem siccam, donec saturatum sit"; (Ed.). For the form κεκοπίακες in Revelation 2:3 see W Schm Gr. p. 113, n.16.
