<DIV>Anthony:<BR>AUQENTEIN is&nbsp; a verb</DIV>
<DIV>AUQENTIAN in Mac 2:29 is the noun AUQENTIA, defined in the LEH lexicon
as:<BR>"restriction, status," with the note: "neologism?"<BR>The Rahlf's edition
of the LXX shows AUQENTAS&nbsp; [ not AUQENTIAN as you cite <BR>] at Wis. 12:6
which is the noun AUQENTHS, defined as "murderer"</DIV>
<DIV>I repeat: the verb AUQENTEIN ( a hapax in the N.T ) does NOT appear in the
<DIV>Maurice A. O'Sullivan:</DIV>

<P>You are absolutely correct AUQENTEIN is a verb: present, active, infinitive.
The verses I cited in the Septuagint/Apocrypha Maccabees 2:29 AUQENTIAN is a
noun and Wisdom of Solomon 12:6 AUQENTAS a noun, but are they not all formed
from the stem AUQENT-. Liddell &amp; Scott have this as 1.To have full power or
authority over. 2. To commit a murder.</P>
<P>I realize that AUQENTEIN appears as a hapax legomenon in the NT, but I was
looking for an understanding of its use regardless of form to better understand
its meaning.</P>
<P>I am new to the study of Koine Greek and I apologize for my lack of knowledge
in this area. I rarely participate in this list because of my ignorance on this
subject. I do appreciate those on the list making me aware of my errors.</P>
