Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The literal meaning ";darken"; (as in Matthew 24:29, al.) is seen in Wünsch AF p. 16.13 (iii/A.D.) ὁρκίζω σε τὸν θεὸν τὸν φωτίζοντα καὶ σκοτίζοντα τὸν κόσμον. For the metaph. usage, as in Romans 1:21, cf. Test. xii. patr. Reub. iii. 8 οὕτως ἀπόλλυται πᾶς νεώτερος, σκοτίζων τὸν νοῦν αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ τῆς ἀληθείας, and see Lightfoot Notes, p. 253.
