Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The use of this word in 2 Corinthians 4:10 may be illustrated from Photius Bibliotheca, p. 513.36, cited by Deissmann (LAE, p. 96 n..1) from the Thesaurus Graecae Linguaeοἱ γὰρ κόκκοι μετὰ τὴν ἐκ σήψεως νέκρωσιν καὶ φθορὰν ἀναζῶσι, ";for the seeds come to life again after death and destruction by decay."; See also Vett. Val. p. 53.8 τὰ ἐκτρώματα γίνονται καὶ δυστοκίαι καὶ νεκρώσεις. In Mark 3:5 D νέκρωσις is substituted for πώρωσις.
