Greek Vocabulary: 

 From the Textus Receptus

Τί (irreg sg neut nom) "Why" is from tis which can mean "someone", "any one", "everyone", "they [indefinite]", "many a one", "whoever", "anyone", "anything", "some sort", "some sort of", "each", "any", "the individual", "such," and so on. In a question, it can mean "who", "why," or "what."

με (pron 1st sg masc acc) "Me" is from eme, which means "I", "me", and "my". -- "Me" is from the regular first-person pronoun in Greek.

πειράζετε, (2nd pl pres ind act) "Tempt" is from peirazo, which means to "make proof or trial of", "attempt" to do, "to attempt", "to try", "to test," and, in a bad sense, "to seek to seduce," and "to tempt."
