Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With the metaphorical use of this verb, ";make shipwreck of,"; ";come to ruin,"; in 1 Timothy 1:19, we may compare the frequent occurrence of the same figure in popular Greek philosophy, e.g. Ps. Kebes 24, 2 ὡς κακῶς διατρίβουσι καὶ ἀθλίως ζῶσι καὶ ὡς ναυαγοῦσιν ἐν τῷ βίῳ, ";how wretchedly they live and how miserably they drag out their existence—derelicts, as it were, on life’s ocean"; (Clark). Other exx. in Dibelius HZNT ad 1 Tim l.c. The literal sense, as in 2 Corinthians 11:25, is well illustrated in P Oxy IV. 839 (early i/A.D.), where, after describing an accident to a boat, the writer continues—.6ff. ὡς ἐναυάγησεν κατὰ Πτολεμαίδα καὶ ἦλθέ μοι γυμνὸς κεκινδυνευκώς, εὐθέως ἠγόρασα αὐτῶι στολήν.
