Headword: Ἐπιτρῖψαι
Adler number: epsilon,2731
Translated headword: to crush, to wear out
Vetting Status: high
[Used] with an accusative. [Meaning] to destroy.
Also [sc. attested is] 'wearings-out', [meaning] wearings-away.[1]
Greek Original:
Ἐπιτρῖψαι: αἰτιατικῇ. ἀπολέσαι. καὶ Ἐπιτρίψεις, συντρίψεις.
The headword is aorist active infinitive of the verb ἐπιτρίβω . It has the same glossing in other lexica, and must be quoted from somewhere -- perhaps Aristophanes, Birds 96. For the gloss cf. the second part of epsilon 2727.
[1] This addendum to the entry explains Psalm 92.3 LXX; see also tau 1043, giving the phrase of Theodoret's out of which the present term (femimine accusative plural) is extracted. Hesychius s.v. ἐπιτρίψεις completes the explanation with another term, συντελέσεις ("completions"), which may not render the psalmist's exact meaning. See for instance Origen, Fragmenta in Psalmos 92.3-4 for an explanation: the church is carried away by the rivers as the eroded earth.
