Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";suffer pain,"; rare in prose writers, is used in the NT only by Luke : cf. the Alexandrian Erotic Fragment P Grenf I. 1.10 (ii/B.C.) ταῦτά με ἀδικεῖ, ταῦτά με ὀδυνᾷ. It occurs quater in Vett. Val., e.g. p. 240.15 οὗτος ὀδυνώμενος ματαίαν ἡγεῖται τὴν τῆς παιδείας ἐπιβολὴν καὶ εὐδαίμονα προκρίνει τὸν ἀμαθῆ : see also Hobart p. 32 f. For the form ὀδυνᾶσαι (Luke 16:25), see Moulton Proleg. p. 53 f. The word may be from the root of ἔδω (cf. curae edaces in Horace) or it may be connected with δύη (Boisacq, p. 685).
