Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Luke 10:31 f. can hardly have acquired this word from Wisdom of Solomon 16:10, where the sense is markedly different. It is quoted from Straton (ii/A.D. ?), who writes (Anth. Pal. 128) ἀντιπαρερχόμενος τὰ στεφανηπλόκια : Meineke took the rather needless trouble to emend ἄρτι παρ.—did he know that the word occurred in Biblical literature? If the compound is rightly read there, it might be a new coinage, as it may well be in Wisdom and in Luke. Any writer was free to make a fresh compound like this for a special purpose. Straton was morally the most tainted writer in the Anthology, and we may be quite sure he owed as little to Holy Writ as it owed to him!
