[Meaning] let us involve ourselves in business, let us gather in, having sold our crop.
Greek Original:
*)empolh/swmen: e)mporeusw/meqa, suna/cwmen, pwlh/santes to\n karpo/n.
Same or very similar entry in other lexica. The headword as transmitted is aorist subjunctive, first person plural, of e)mpola/w. (For this verb see also epsilon 1035, epsilon 1039, epsilon 1040.)
This headword, not independently attested, invites the assumption that it is quoted from somewhere. Perhaps it is -- but NB: Amos 8.5 LXX has e)mpolh/somen (i.e. future indicative, confirmed by patristic quotations of the verse), and some lexica have glosses appropriate to that.
