Headword: Νεώσατε
Adler number: nu,237
Translated headword: plough up!
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] plough!
Greek Original:
Νεώσατε: ἀροτριάσατε.
The headword is the aorist imperative, second person plural, of νεόω , a verb which in classical Greek means to "renovate", but in the Koine was conflated with νεάω "to plough". Same or similar entry elsewhere (references at Photius nu166 Theodoridis), and the imperative itself is extracted from the Septuagint (Jeremiah 4:3).
