Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ὀρέγομαι is found ter in the NT (1 Timothy 3:1; 1 Timothy 6:10, Hebrews 11:16) in the sense ";seek for,"; ";long for,"; but in Kaibel 448.4 οὔ τινος [αὐ ]τῷ αὐτοκασιγνήτων χεῖρας ὀρεξα [μέ ]νου, the concluding phrase is = βοηθήσαντος, ";having come to the assistance of,"; rather than ";having sought assistance from"; : see Herwerden Lex. s.v., and cf. P Oxy VI. 902.11 (c. A.D. 465) ἐπὶ τοίνυν οἱ ἔκδικοι ἐπενοήθησαν ἐν ταῖς πόλεσειν πρὸ [ς ] τῷ βοήθειαν ὀρέξαι τοῖς ἀδικουμένοις κτλ., ";therefore, since advocates have been devised in the cities for the purpose of lending assistance to the oppressed,"; etc. In 1 Timothy 3:1 Field (Notes, p. 204) prefers the translation ";aspires to"; rather than ";seeketh"; (RV), to bring out that the idea of ambitious seeking does not necessarily belong to the word itself or to its connexion : see his exx. from late Greek, and add Polyb. v. 104. 7 πραγμάτων (= imperii) ὀρέγεται (cited by Parry ad 1 Timothy 3:1). MGr ρέγομαι.
