WOTD, νομίζω

The word of the day is…

νομίζω, νομιῶ, ἐνόμισα, νενόμικα, νενόμισμαι, ἐνομίσθην

Classical Greek, nomizō, nomiō, enomisa, nenomika, nenomismai, enomisthēn, 1. to consider or think, to believe.

The second-person plural, aorist active subjunctive (in the negative) of this verb starts the passage I recently blogged about, Matthew 5:17-20, where Jesus says, μη νομίσητε, “Do not think…”
