Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ἐπισπάομαι epispáomai, ep-ee-spah'-om-ahee; from G1909 and G4685; to draw over, i.e. (with G203 implied) efface the mark of circumcision (by recovering with the foreskin):—become uncircumcised.
STRONGS G1986:
ἐπισπάω, -ῶ: from Aeschylus down; to draw on: μὴ ἐπισπάσθω, namely, ἀκροβυστίαν, let him not draw on his foreskin (Hesychius μὴ ἐπισπάσθω· μὴ ἑλκυέτω τὸ δέρμα) [A. V. let him not become uncircumcised], 1 Corinthians 7:18. From the days of Antiochus Epiphanes [B. C. 175-164] down (1 Macc. 1:15; Josephus, Antiquities 12, 5, 1), there had been Jews who, in order to conceal from heathen persecutors or scoffers the external sign of their nationality, sought artificially to compel nature to reproduce the prepuce, by extending or drawing forward with an iron instrument the remnant of it still left, so as to cover the glans. The rabbis called such persons מְשׁוּכִים, from סָשַׁךְ to draw out, see Buxtorf, Lex. Talm., p. 1274 [(Fischer edition ii., 645f). Cf. BB. DD. under the word Circumcision, especially McClintock and Strong's Cyclopaedia, ibid. II. 2.]
