2 Corinthians 6:2

Behold, now is the acceptable time (idou nun kairo euprosdekto). Here is another "Pauline parenthesis" (Plummer) as in 1 Corinthians 5:7 by the quotation from Isaiah 49:8 . The LXX has dekto (dektoi) verbal of decomai, but Paul employs the double compound (eu, pro, dekto), well-received. It occurs in Aristophanes, Plutarch, inscription, etc.
