1. Danker seems to think that ἁγνίζω hAGNIZW in the middle is properly glossed as "dedicate."
③mid. (w. pass.aor.) to set oneself apart in dedication,to dedicate oneselfi.e.give oneself up as a propitiationὑπὲρ ὑμῶνhUPER hUMWN for youIEph8:1. ἁγνίζεται ὑπὲρ ὑμῶν τὸ ἐμὸν πνεῦμα hAGNIZETAI hUPER hUMWN TO EMON PNEUMA my spirit dedicates itself for youITr13:3.—DELGs.v.ἅζομαι hAZOMAI. M-M.

2. Note that in the BDAG entry Danker gives ἁγνίζεται ὑπὲρ ὑμῶν hAGNIZETAI hUPER hUMWN while Holmes has the text as you give it. I was wondering about this and therefore made to comment wanting to check further. Would the correct text please stand up?

I'd love to hear what you think hAGNIZOMAI means, plus
your take on the genitive hUMWN.
Maybe it means something like "my spirit is
getting clean on your behalf...?"
Carl may be correct about the text being
in question. Bauer seems to be quoting from
a text which has hUPER instead of the
bare genitive All I have is Holmes, which does
not have a note. Is a critical text available
on line or does anyone have one?
