 BAGD gives examples of GENNAW applied to a woman giving birth, as the
 equivalent of TIKTEIN.

 But the locus enquired of was Psalm 2:7 LXX, hUIOS MOU EI SU, EGW SHMERON
 GEGENNHKA SE. This is normally taken as metaphorical of the Resurrection
 of the First-begotten from the dead, Acts 13:33-34. Compare ANAGENNHSAS in
 1 Peter 1:3, and hO PRWTOTOKOS TWN NEKRWN in Revelation 1:5. Paul adverts
 to it in Romans 1:4, TOU hORISQENTOS hUIOU QEOU EN DUNAMEI KATA PNEUMA
 hAGIWSUNHS EX ANASTASEWS NEKRWN  ktl.
