Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This word, in NT only 2 Corinthians 6:5; 2 Corinthians 11:27, is found in Syll 803.50 (iii/B.C.) οὗτος ἀγρυπνίαις συνεχόμενος διὰ τὸμ πόνον τᾶς κεφαλᾶ [ς ]—a passage which also throws light on the NT usage of συνέχομαι, e.g. Matthew 4:24 νόσοις καὶ βασάνοις συνεχομένους. For the adverb of the primary ἄγρυπνος, see OGIS 194.23 (i/B.C.) [γρ ]ύπνως. . . [ἐφ ]ρόντισεν.
