Headword: Ἠδολέσχησα
Adler number: eta,94
Translated headword: I talked idly, I talked, I meditated
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] I was talking to myself in conversation.[1]
Greek Original:
Ἠδολέσχησα: διελάλουν ἐμαυτῷ προσδιαλεγόμενος.
The headword is the aorist indicative, first person singular, of the verb ἀδολεσχέω , used in all periods. In the classical age it seems to have negative implications (to talk idly), but less so subsequently.
[1] Quotation excerpted from Theodoret, Interpretatio in Psalmos 80.1477b Migne, commenting on Psalm 76.4 LXX: ἠδολέσχησα, καὶ ὠλιγοψύχησεν τὸ πνεῦμά μου ; 'I talked, and I was discouraged in my soul'. He continues: 'conversing with myself and considering the evils constraining me I gave up [trying] to remove them, and accepted the sharp pains of my despondency'.
