New Testament



PASCŌ/πάσχω: to suffer

 PASCŌ/πάσχω (verb) 

[BDAG]: ‘to experience something, be treated’ (PASCŌ/πάσχω expresses the passive idea corresponding to the active idea in ποιέω/POIEŌ [‘to do’]) of everything that befalls a person, whether good or ill. Yet its usage developed in such a way that PASCŌ/πάσχω came to be used less and less frequently in a good sense, and never thus without some clear indication, at least from the context, that the good sense is meant. In our literature it is found:

  1. only once in the sense experience something (pleasant) of one who experiences special blessing Gal.3:4
  2. Likewise there is only one place in which PASCŌ/πάσχω has a neutral meaning. Even here the addition of KAKŌS/κακῶς gives it an unfavorable connotation: be badly off, in an evil plight: Matt 17:15
  3. In all other places, as always in LXX, in an unfavorable sense suffer, endure.
