διαλογισμός, διαλογισμοῦ, ὁ (διαλογίζομαι), the Sept. for מַחֲשָׁבָה and Chaldean רַעְיון, in Greek writings from Plato down, the thinking of a man deliberating with himself; hence,
1. a thought, inward reasoning: Luke 2:35; Luke 5:22; Luke 6:8; Luke 9:46; Romans 14:1 (yet some bring this under 2); the reasoning of those who think themselves to be wise, Romans 1:21; 1 Corinthians 3:20; an opinion: κριταί διαλογισμῶν πονηρῶν, judges with evil thoughts, i. e. who follow perverse opinions, reprehensible principles, James 2:4 (cf. Winers Grammar, 187 (176)); purpose, design: Matthew 15:19; Mark 7:21.
2. a deliberating, questioning, about what is true: Luke 24:38; when in reference to what ought to be done, hesitation, doubting: χωρίς γογγυσμῶν καί διαλογισμῶν, Philippians 2:14 (`γογγυσμῶν is the moral, διαλογισμῶν the intellectual rebellion against God' Lightfoot); χωρίς ὀργῆς καί διαλογισμοῦ, 1 Timothy 2:8; (in the last two passages others still advocate the rendering disputing; yet cf. Meyer on Philippians the passage cited).

The judicial reference of this word (see s.v. διαλογίζομαι) might perhaps be directly recognized in James 2:4, ";judges who give corrupt decisions."; It adds point to such NT passages as Philippians 2:14 χωρὶς γωγγυσμῶν καὶ διαλογισμῶν, 1 Timothy 2:8 χωρὶς ὀργῆς καὶ διαλογισμῶν, where the thought of outward disputing and discussion is uppermost. So BGU I. 19i. 13 (ii/A.D.) τῷ διεληλυθότι διαλογισμῷ ἐδικάσατο, ib. 226.22 (A.D. 99) ὅτ ̣αν ὁ κράτιστος ἡγεμὼν Πομπήιος Πλάντας τὸν τοῦ νομοῦ διαλογισμὸν ποιῆται πρὸς τὸ τυχῖν με τῆς ἀπὸ σοῦ βοηθείας, P Tebt I. 27.85 (B.C. 113) ἐπὶ τοῦ συσταθέντος πρὸς σὲ διαλογισμοῦ, ";at the inquiry instituted against you."; Add the heading ὁ διαλογι [σμὸς of P Oxy II. 294. (A.D. 22) (= Selections, p. 34) with reference to the hearing of a particular case, and P Fay 66.2, .4 (A.D. 185 or 217), where we read of fines imposed as the result of an official inquiry—ὑπ (ὲρ) ἐπιτί (μου) διαλογ (ισμοῦ) : also P Oxy IV. 726.12 (A.D. 135), ib. VII. 1032.21 (A.D. 162), P Tebt II. 407.12 (? A.D. 199), etc. In P Leid Bi. 13 (B.C. 164) the Twins at the Serapeum in Memphis make petition to Philometor for maintenance ὡς γ ]ραπτόν ἐστιν ἐν τοῖς ἀρχαίοις διαλογισμοῖς, where the noun presumably represents the ";original decisions"; or ";agreements"; made when they took office. In P Par 62iv. 13 (ii/B.C.) ὁ δὲ διαλογισμὸς τῆς ἐγλήψεως συσταθήσεται πρὸς αὐτοὺς κατὰ μῆνα, ἐκ τῶν πιπτόντων ἐπὶ τὴν τράπεζαν, the word = ";rationum relatio, depositio"; : see Witkowski’s note, Epp..2 p. 52. Similarly in P Rev L 17.17 τῶν δὲ διαλογισμῶν οὓς ἄ ̣[ν ποιή ]σηται ὁ οἰκονό [μ ]ος πρὸς τ [ο ]ὺς τὰς ὠνὰς ἔχοντας πάντων ἀντίγραφα ἑκάστω [ι ] τῶν κοινων [ῶ ]ν παραχρῆμα δότω σφραγισάμενος αὐτός : see Mayser’s list of reff., Gr. p. 437. We have no citations for the meaning ";thought,"; ";cogitation,"; common in LXX and NT, nor for ";dispute,"; though this lies near to the idea of argument in court. But the former is not ";peculiar to Biblical Greek,"; as is implied by Hatch Essays, p. 7f. : cf. φροντίδες καὶ διαλογισμοί in [Plato] Axiochus (p. 367A) and other citations in LS.
