Headword: Diiknoumenos
Adler number: delta,1040
Translated headword: let it go through, let it penetrate
Vetting Status: high
[Used] with a genitive. [Meaning] let it extend. Also [sc. attested is the related participle] diiknou/menos ["going through"], [meaning] coming through.
Greek Original:
Diikneisthô: genikêi. phthasatô. kai Diiknoumenos, dierchomenos.
The primary headword (erroneous in the SOL) -- also in Hesychius but with different glossing -- is the present imperative, third person singular, of the verb diikne/omai. It must be quoted from somewhere, perhaps the Septuagint (Exodus 26.28).
Hesychius has a separate lemma for the participle (glossed as here), and Latte ad loc. identifies its source as the New Testament (Ep.Hebrews 4.12).
Keywords: Christianity; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; religion
