Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";am moved as to the σπλάγχνα "; (q.v.), and hence ";am filled with compassion, tenderness."; Lightfoot on Philippians 1:8 writes that the verb does not seem to be classical, and was ";perhaps a coinage of the Jewish Dispersion,"; and Thumb, Hellen. p. 123 practically confirms this. It occurs in the fragmentary vi/A.D. petition P Flor III. 296.23 οὐκ ἐσπλαγχνίσθη ὁ εἰρημε ̣(νος), and we may note its appearance in the MGr sailor’s prayer—

Σπλαγχίσου με, Βορέα μου,

Πατέρα μου Βορέα.

";O have pity on me, my North Wind, father North Wind"; (see Abbott, Songs p. 164).
