Actually it is the aorist active infinitive of SPANIZW which when used of things means, " to be rare, scarce, scanty" and when used of people means "to lack or be in want of something" It is used in 2 Kings 14:26; Job 14:11; Judith 11:12

I hope this helps,

Subject: [B-Greek] SPANISAI

In Daniel 9:24 Old Greek, this word appears.  KAI TAS ADIKIAS SPANISAI 

I understand that it could be translated "And to make iniquities rare"
or "scarce."  But to focus on SPANISAI alone, would it literally be "to
make rare"?  It is Verb: Aorist Passive Infinitive of SUNTELEW.

Thank you!
