Headword: Κατανυγῶ
Adler number: kappa,680
Translated headword: I would [not] be stunned
Vetting Status: high
For Chrysostom [sc. says this] meaning I shall not be altered, I shall not change.[1] And the Apostle [Paul writes]: "God gave them a spirit of stupor."[2] He does not indicate action, but [says this] meaning [God] permitted; for he speaks of the worse condition of the soul, that which is incurable and inalterable. For just as one who has been stunned in [ = with] caution would not lightly change, so he who has been stunned in [ = with] wickedness would not easily be altered. But Isidore [sc. uses the word] meaning I shall not be struck down, I shall not change.[3]
Greek Original:
Κατανυγῶ: ὁ μὲν γὰρ Χρυσόστομος ἀντὶ τοῦ οὐ μὴ μεταβληθῶ, οὐ μὴ μεταστῶ. καὶ ὁ Ἀπόστολος: ἔδωκεν αὐτοῖς ὁ θεὸς πνεῦμα κατανύξεως. οὐκ ἐνέργειαν δηλοῖ, ἀλλ' ἀντὶ τοῦ συνεχώρησε: τὴν γὰρ ἐπὶ τὸ χεῖρον ἕξιν τῆς ψυχῆς φησι, τὴν ἀνιάτως ἔχουσαν καὶ ἀμεταθέτως. ὥσπερ γὰρ ὁ ἐν εὐλαβείᾳ κατανενυγμένος οὐκ ἂν εὐκόλως μεταστῇ, οὕτω καὶ ὁ ἐν πονηρίᾳ κατανυγεὶς οὐκ ἂν ῥᾳδίως μεταβάλοιτο. ὁ δὲ Ἰσίδωρος ἀντὶ τοῦ οὐ μὴ καταπλαγῶ, οὐ μὴ μεταστῶ.
