Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The only citation for this word which we can supply from our sources is P Petr II. 17 (4).6 (iii/B.C.) ἐσπάρασσεν, but the broken nature of the context makes it impossible to determine the exact meaning. For the word = ";throw on the ground"; in Mark 1:26 see Swete’s note ad l. In Herodas V. 57 the verb is = ";maul,"; cf. ib. VIII. 25. A good example of the metaph. use is afforded by Teles p. 19.5 φαίνεται γὰρ ἡ Ξανθίππη ὀξυρεγμίᾳ σπαράσσειν ἡμᾶς (Socrates addressing Alcibiades). For the subst. σπάραγμα a used collectively see Syll 583 (= .3 996).31 (c. i/A.D. ?) τὴν. . θεμελίωσιν ἐν τετραγώνῳ διὰ σπαράγματος.
