Headword: Ἀποστέρησις
Adler number: alpha,3553
Translated headword: confiscation
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Confiscation means] to take and keep things which belong to someone else. "And when we do not give alms, we are punished in the same way as those who are confiscating."
Greek Original:
Ἀποστέρησις: τὸ τὰ ἀλλότρια λαβόντας κατέχειν. καὶ ὅταν ἐλεημοσύνην μὴ παράσχωμεν, ἐν ἴσῳ τοῖς ἀποστεροῦσι κολαζόμεθα.
Note:
Adler formatted this entry as headword plus glossing phrase, followed by a separate (unidentified) quotation. In fact, as a TLG search shows, all this material -- again at epsilon 785 and epsilon 3671 -- comes from a passage in John Chrysostom's Second Homily on Lazarus (PG 48.988); here it is first lightly paraphrased, then quoted (but note that JC's verb is future κολασόμεθα , 'we will be punished').
Reference:
