Vocabulary of the Greek NT

δεκατόω cannot be paralleled except in LXX, as far as we can find. Since δεκάτη had become a conspicuous term. techn. in Judaism, the coining of a new verb, to express a procedure without any real parallel in profane Greek, was wholly natural in any literature. The coinage was the more encouraged, as δεκατεύω was getting new senses, in addition to ";tithe"; : it was for instance used in astrology = τετραγωνίζω , PSI III. 158.4 note.
