Greek Original:
Ῥαγῶσαι: τεμεῖν. καί, ῥαγήσεται πρώϊμον τὸ φῶς σου.
[1] Same equivalance in other (late) lexica. As transmitted, this headword ῥαγῶσαι is aorist infinitive of an otherwise unattested verb ῥαγόω . LSJ s.v. declares this probably a false reading for (otherwise unattested) ῥακῶσαι , which does not seem much help (ῥακόω means "I become ragged or wrinkled").
[2] Isaiah 58.8 LXX. Here the verb is future passive of ῥήγνυμι , third person singular.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; religion
