Headword: Μεμυαλωμένα
Adler number: mu,578
Translated headword: marrowed
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] well-fed and fat. For this is also what the law commanded. And Malachi the prophet commanded unblemished and perfect ones; and he directs curses at those who have that kind but offer maimed ones.[1]
Greek Original:
Μεμυαλωμένα: εὐτραφῆ καὶ πίονα. οὕτω γὰρ καὶ ὁ νόμος ἐκέλευσε. καὶ Μαλαχίας δὲ ὁ προφήτης ἐκέλευσεν ἄμωμά τε καὶ ἄρτια: ἐπαρᾶται δὲ τοῖς τοιαῦτα μὲν ἔχουσιν, ἀνάπηρα δὲ προσφέρουσι.
The headword -- perfect middle/passive participle, neuter plural, of μυαλόω -- is drawn from Psalm 65:15 LXX (66:15 RSV) in reference to sacrificial animals; here with Theodoret's commentary (PG 80, 1369b). The adjective is rendered as "fatlings" in RSV: "I shall offer thee burnt offerings of fatlings."
[1] Malachi 1:6-8 LXX.
