Headword: *proexw/meqa
Adler number: pi,2402
Translated headword: would we hold ourselves ahead?
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] would we present ourselves, or would we we put ourselves forward?
Greek Original:
*proexw/meqa: u(poballw/meqa, h)\ proballw/meqa.
The headword is present middle subjunctive of proe/xw (pi 2401), first person plural. Same or similar glossing in other lexica (references at Photius pi1223 Theodoridis), based on Ep. Romans 3.9, where the corresponding indicative occurs, with this subjunctive as a variant reading (web address 1). The RSV translates, "Are we Jews any better off?" but offers an alternative interpretation in a footnote: "at any disadvantage?"
