μετὰ δὲ ταῦτα ἐθεώρουν ἐν ὁράματι τῆς νυκτὸς θηρίον τέταρτον φοβερόν, καὶ ὁ φόβος αὐτοῦ ὑπερφέρων ἰσχύι, ἔχον ὀδόντας σιδηροῦς μεγάλους, ἐσθίον καὶ κοπανίζον, κύκλῳ τοῖς ποσὶ καταπατοῦν, διαφόρως χρώμενον παρὰ πάντα τὰ πρὸ αὐτού θηρία, εἶχε δὲ κέρατα δέκα,

META DE TAUTA EQEWROUN EN hORAMATI THS NUKTOS QHRION TETARTON FOBERON, KAI hO FOBOS AUTOU hUPERFERWN ISXUI, EXON ODONTAS SIDHROUS MEGALOUS, ESQION KAI KOPANIZON, KUKLWi TOIS POSI KATAPATOUN, DIAFORWS XRWMENON PARA PANTA TA PRO AUTOU QHRIA, EIXE DE KERATA DEKA

Lust, Eynikel and Hauspie gives "grind, pound" for KOPANIZW and LSJ gives "bray, pound."  In view of the context of the passage (ἐσθίον καὶ κοπανίζον [ESQION KAI KOPANIZON]) it would appear that "grind" is more probable.

Therefore, O faithful Christian, search for truth, hear truth, 
learn truth, love truth, speak the truth, hold the truth, 
defend the truth till death.

I have run onto a word that I am unsure about.  It is found in Daniel
7:7 of the Old Greek LXX, not Theodotian.  Here is some of the passage
to put it into context.  My translation would roughly be, "surpassing in
strength.  It had great iron teeth, eating and ????"  Would it best be
translated "pounding" or "thrashing?"  Thanks!  John Litteral
