Headword: Ἥγημα
Adler number: eta,50
Translated headword: purpose
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] will, thought.[1]
It is used in the prophet.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἥγημα: βουλή, γνώμη. παρὰ τῷ προφήτῃ εἴρηται.
Notes:
The headword term, a neuter noun, is a very rare one, used in Ezekiel 17.3 LXX in the famous enigma of the eagle (often quoted by the Church Fathers). Only Eustathius uses this term -- once -- without quoting Ezekiel (Commentarius in hexameron 724.23, on animals that can live in and out of water).
[1] Taken from the Synagoge (Lexica Segueriana eta248.12); quoted also in Photius, Lexicon eta32 Theodoridis.
[2] Ezekiel 17.3 LXX.
