Vocabulary of the Greek NT

in early Greek writers = ";throat,"; but afterwards extended to ";stomach,"; as in 1 Timothy 5:23, its only NT occurrence : cf. P Leid Wxvii. 36 (ii/iii A.D.) (= II. p. 145) ἀμφοτέρας (sc. χεῖρας) ἐπὶ τοῦ στομάχου. The word is used metaph. in P Oxy III. 533.14 (ii/iii A.D.) [ν ]α μὴ ἔχωμεν στομάχου [ς ] μηδὲ φθόνον, ";that we may not be caused vexation and annoyance"; (Edd.) : cf. Vett. Val. p. 216.3 γέγονε στόμαχος (";anger";) πρὸς δουλικὸν πρόσωπον.
