Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This word, which in the NT is confined to Luke 22:44 א* D (cf. Hobart, p. 82), may be illustrated from the magic P Lond 46.152 (iv/A.D.) (= I. p. 70) ἐγώ εἰμι οὗ ἐστιν ὁ ἱδρὼς ὄμβρος ἐπιπείπτων ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν. In ib. 402 verso.18 (ii/B.C.) (= II. p, 11) we read of ἱδρω ̣ια παλ (αιά), perhaps, as the editor suggests, ";old sweaters"; : the same word may be lurking in P Tebt I. 116.34 (late ii/B.C.) τι (μῆς) ἱδροίων β ̄ ω ̄μ ̄, and in P Goodsp Cairo 30iii. 22 (A.D. 191–2) ἱδρώων ς ̄, cf. Mayser Gr, p. 137. For the derived meaning see P Amh II. 40.17 (ii/B.C.) μετὰ πολλοῦ ἱδρῶτος, ";by great exertions"; (Edd.) : cf. Lat. multo sudore. The verb, as in 4 Maccabees 3:8; 4 Maccabees 6:11, Didache i. 6, occurs in P Oxy X. 1242.52 (early iii/A.D,) ἡ τοῦ Σαράπιδος προτομὴ. . αἰφνίδιον ἵδρωσεν, ";the bust of Sarapis suddenly sweated"; : cf. Verg. Georg. i. 480 et maesturn inlacrimat templis ebur aeraque sudant. MGr ἵδρος, ἱδρῶτας, with the verb ἱδρώνω or δρώνω.
