Headword: Ἐβδελύχθησαν
Adler number: epsilon,23
Translated headword: they were abominated
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] they were rejected.
Greek Original:
Ἐβδελύχθησαν: ἀπερρίφησαν.
(Entry lacking, Adler reports, in ms FV.)
The headword is aorist indicative passive, third person plural, of the verb βδελύσσω (cf. beta 205, beta 206). It must be quoted from somewhere; very probably Psalm 13.1 LXX or Psalm 52.2 LXX.
In Attic this verb (in the form βδελύττομαι ) is used only in the middle, with the aorist passive, meaning "I feel disgusted, I feel sick" (e.g. Aristophanes, Wasps 792). Later, for example in the Septuagint, the active is used causatively and the aorist passive has a passive sense, as in this entry. See LSJ s.v.
