STRONGS NT 760a: ἀσαίνωἀσαίνω: in 1 Thessalonians 3:3, Kuenen and Cobet (in their N. T. ad fidem manuscript Vat., Lugd. 1860 (pref., p. xc.)), following Lachmann (who followed Valckenaer in following J. J. Reiske (Animad. ad Polybius, p. 68); see Valck. Opuscc. ii. 246-249) in his larger edit., conjectured and received into their text μηδέν ἀσαίνεσθαι, which they think to be equivalent to ά᾿χθεσθαι, χαλεπως φέρειν. But there is no necessity for changing the Rec. (see σαίνω, 2 b. β.), nor can it be shown that ἀσαίνω is used by Greek writings for ἀσάω.
