Headword: Παροιστρῶσα
Adler number: pi,739
Translated headword: being goaded
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] excited, stimulating.
Greek Original:
Παροιστρῶσα: ἐξεστηκυῖα, ἐρεθίζουσα.
Notes:
= Synagoge, Photius pi428 Theodoridis -- deriving (it is routinely assumed) from commentary to Hosea 14:6 LXX, where the headword occurs in an image of Israel as a goaded heifer.
The headword is present active participle, nominative singular feminine, of the verb παροιστράω . Although this verb is normally used intransitively (as it is in the Septuagint passage cited), it and, more frequently, the root-verb οἰστράω can also be used transitively. This is perhaps the source of some confusion in the gloss: the first gloss is normally intransitive, the second transitive.
