I'm trying to learn more about the word ἐπιμελέομαι in non-Orthodox contexts, but pretty much all my searches are turning up Bible commentaries (it's used only 3 times in the NT). Can anyone point out some places in the wider Greek corpus where this is used, particularly with enough context to discern whether it is a technical term or more widely intended for any form of oversight? Thanks!

It is still in use, as are its derivatives, and refers to any form of oversight or diligence.
