νέας τροφῆς ἔληξε, ceased to need the tender care which is given to children. νέα τροφή, here, "the nurture (not "growth") of the young": so Ai. 510 “νέας ι τροφῆς στερηθείς”, bereft of the tendance which childhood needs: El. 1143 “῾σπεακινγ οφ ηερ βροτηερ᾽ς ινφανξψ̓ τροφῆς ι … τὴν … ἀμφὶ σοὶ ι παρέσχον”. But in O. T. 1 “νέα τροφή” = "last-born nurslings." κατίσχυσεν, became strong (ingressive aor.), δέμας, “"in body"” (acc. of respect). This compound verb, though metrically convenient, seems not to occur elsewhere before the 2nd cent. B.C.: it was usu. intrans., as Polyb. 11. 13 “κατίσχυον καὶ τῷ πλήθει καὶ ταῖς εὐχειρίαις” (began to prevail in the battle). Evang. Matth. xvi. 18 “πύλαι ᾄδου οὐ κατισχύουσιν αὐτῆς”.
