1234 diagoggýzō (an onomatopoetic term imitating the sound of cooing doves and humming bees) – constantly, intensely murmur (grumble, complain) – an intensified form of 1111 /goggýzō ("murmur") to convey "heavy complaining," i.e. the constant "buzz" of negative murmuring (note the prefix, dia).

[Lk 5:30 uses the simple form (1111 /goggýzō), which likewise is uncommon. But the "compound with dia- (1234 /diagoggýzō) is still rarer . . . and more expressive" (WP, 2, 240).]
