Dear Carl,

Some time ago we discussed the meaning of PEIRAZW. Most of the opinions were
that this word meant "to test" and not "to entice to sin". Now I wonder how it
can work for example with Gal 6:1:
SKOPWN SEAUTON MH KAI SU PEIRASQHS (...considering thyself, lest thou also be
tempted). If "tempted" here is not "tempted" but "tested", how can it be
understood? Maybe this word can mean "to fail the test"?

Thank you.
