Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The verb is used of loading a ship with grain in P Magd 11.14 (B.C. 221) συντάξαι Εὐφράνορι . . . γεμίσαι τὸ πλοῖον ἐκ (cf. Revelation 8:5) τῶν καθ᾽ αὑτὸν τόπων τὴν ταχίστην . In l. 11 of the same papyrus we have the pass. γεμίζηται used absolutely, and similarly on the verso πε [ρὶ τ ]ο ̣ [γεμι ]σθῆναι αὐτοῦ τ [ὸ πλο ] [ο ]ν : cf. Mark 4:37, Luke 14:23. Other examples of the verb are P Fay 117.14 (A.D. 108) πάντα τὰ κτήνη γέμιζ ̣ι ̣ (l. γέμιζε ) βάκανο ̣ν , ";load all the animals with cabbage,"; ib. 118.23 (A.D. 110), P Tebt II. 419.17 (iii/A.D.) γέμεισον χόρτου , ";load (the ass) with hay,"; P Flor II. 184.15 (iii/A.D.) γεμίσας τὰ ἐκκενωθέντα τότε σιτάρια , and .17 τοὺς τέσσαρες σάκκους γεμίσαι , P Rein 53.4 (iii/iv A.D.) τὰ ἀποσταλέντα καμήλια γέμωσον (see below) οἴνου . For the constr. with acc. and gen., as in this last instance and others (cf. Mark 15:36 etc.), see also OGIS 383.146 (i/B.C.) τρ ]απέζας μὲν ἱερὰς πρεπούσης θοίνης γεμί [ζ ]ων . In MGr γεμίζω is construed with double accusative. The curious form γέμωσον (P Rein 53 l. c.) is explained by P Flor II. 184.18 (iii/A.D.) γόμωσον , and other passages where this alternative γομόω occurs : γέμωσον is a compromise. Note the negatived verbal in P Sa῾ι d Khan 1 b. .34 (B.C. 88) στέμφ [υ ]λα ἀγέμιστ ̣[α .
