In Jam. 5:14, it is written,
ΙΔʹ ἀσθενεῖ τις ἐν ὑμῖν προσκαλεσάσθω τοὺς πρεσβυτέρους τῆς ἐκκλησίας καὶ προσευξάσθωσαν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν ἀλείψαντες αὐτὸν ἐλαίῳ ἐν τῷ ὀνόματι τοῦ κυρίου TR, 1550
Why does James write (use) ἀλείψαντες (lemma: ἀλείφω) rather than, say, χρίσαντες (lemma: χρίω)? What is the difference between these two verbs that would lead him to prefer ἀλείφω over χρίω in this particular context?
