Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The spelling ἐνδώμησις which WH adopt in Revelation 21:18 is confirmed by Syll 583.31 (i/A.D. ?) τὴν ἐνδώμησιν τοῦ τεμένους, where the editor pronounces this orthography ";nova."; The form ἐνδόμησις occurs in Jos. Antt. xv. 335 = a ";mole"; or ";breakwater."; Neither of the above reff. supports Souter’s suggestion (Lex. s.v.) that the word is probably = ";roofing"; (from δῶμα, ";roof";) rather than ";building.";
