Vocabulary of the Greek NT

To Hort’s exx. ad James 1:6 of this word to denote the surface of the water blown upon by shifting breezes, rather than billows lashed by a storm, we may add Aristeas 70 where the workmanship bestowed on certain ornamental leaves is described as so life-like that if a breath of wind blew upon them—ῥιπίζοντος τοῦ κατὰ τὸν ἀέρα πνεύματος —the leaves stirred in their places. It should be noted that the verb is derived not from ῥιπή, ";a rushing motion"; (ῥίπτω), but from ῥιπίς, ";a fire-fan.";
