Headword: Ἐκκακῶ
Adler number: epsilon,340
Translated headword: I am faint-hearted, I lose heart
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] I have no experience of evil.[1]
"May I do this many times [?...]."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐκκακῶ: ἀπειροκακῶ. πλειστάκις τοῦτο ποιῶ.
Same entry in ps.-Zonaras and, according to Adler, the Ambrosian Lexicon. The headword verb ἐκκακέω appears in New Testament manuscripts (of e.g. Luke 18.1) as a variant reading for ἐγκακέω ; see LSJ s.v.
[1] This gloss does not seem to relate to the headword (unless it is a sheer misunderstanding of it). Dindorf suggested emending to ἀποκακῶ , "I sink under a weight of misery." Bernhardy, comparing epsilon 1602, proposed ἀπαγορεύω, ἀποκακῶ .
[2] Here Alberti proposed adding καὶ μὴ ἐκκακῶ "...and not lose heart." (But the quotation, if such it is, is unidentifiable.)
