1 Peter 2:15

By well-doing (agaqopoiounta). Present active participle of agaqopoiew, only in LXX and N.T. ( Mark 3:4 ). In accusative case agreeing with uma understood, accusative of general reference with pimoin, present active infinitive (epexegetic infinitive after to qelhma tou qeou, the will of God), late and rare verb (from pimo muzzle), as in Matthew 22:12 . The ignorance of foolish men (thn twn apronwn anqrwpwn agnwsian). Agnwsia is late and rare word (in the papyri) from alpha privative and gnwsi (knowledge), in N.T. only here and 1 Corinthians 15:24 (disgraceful ignorance in both instances). Note alliteration.
