No instances of this verb have as yet been quoted outside the NT, and it is therefore not possible to determine how far the rule of Apollonius De Constr. p. 280, II (ed. Bekker) ἐστὶ γὰρ τὸ μὲν ";γαμῶ ,"; γάμου μεταλαμβάνω · τὸ δὲ ";γαμίζω ,"; γάμου τινὶ μεταδίδωμι applies. It may be noted, however, that many verbs in -ίζω are found used in the same way as verbs in -έω (e.g. ἀπολογίζω , ἀπολογέω ; cf. Hatzidakis Gr. p. 395), and that consequently in 1 Corinthians 7:38 γαμίζω may = ";marry"; and not ";give in marriage."; For this rendering see further ad l. Lietzmann in HZNT, and J. Weiss in Meyer’s Kommentar.9.
