STRONGS NT 1457a: ἐγκακέωἐγκακέω, ἐγκάκω ((see below); 1 aorist ἐνεκάκησα; (κακός); (properly, to behave badly in; hence) to be weary in anything, or to lose courage, flag, faint: adopted by L T Tr WH in place of R G ἐκκακέω (which see) in Luke 18:1; 2 Corinthians 4:1, 16; Galatians 6:9; Ephesians 3:13; 2 Thessalonians 3:13 — except that T WH write ἐνκακέω in Luke 18:1; Galatians 6:9; Ephesians 3:13; so WH in 2 Thessalonians 3:13, also; see ἐν, III. 3; (cf. Tdf.'s note on 2 Corinthians 4:1; Meyer ibid., who thinks that ἐκκακέω may have been a colloquial form. See the full exhibition of the usage of the manuscripts given by Dr. Gregory in his Proleg. to Tdf. edition 8, p. 78.) (Found a few times in Symm. (Genesis 27:46; Numbers 21:5; Isaiah 7:16; also Proverbs 3:11 Theod.); Clement of Rome, 2 Cor. 2, 2 [ET]; in secular writings only in Polybius 4, 19, 10 τό πέμπειν τάς βοηθείας ἐνεκακησαν they culpably neglected to send aid (add Philo de confus. lingg. § 13 (Mang. i., 412, 36) οὐκ ἐκκακουμενος; ἐκναμφθην.)
