Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Hib I. 35.5 (c. B.C. 250) διατελο [ ]μεν τοὺς φόρους εὐτακτοῦντες εἰς τὸ ἱερὸν διὰ τὴν παρ᾽ ὑμῶν σκε ̣[π ]η ̣ν, ";we have long administered with regularity the revenues of the temple on account of your protection"; (Edd.), P Lond 42.4 (B.C. 168) (= I. p. 30, Selections, p. 9) εἴηι ἂν τοῖς θεοῖς εὐχομένη διατελῶ, ";it would be as I am continually praying to the gods,"; BGU I. 287.7 (a libellus—A.D. 250) (= Selections, p. 115) καὶ ἀεὶ θύων τοῖς θεοῖς διετέλεσα, P Oxy IX. 1204.16 (A.D. 299) διετέλεσεν γοῦν ὑπηρετούμενος τῇ σῇ τοῦ ἐμοῦ κυρίου τάξει. In P Oxy I 120 verso.10 (iv/A.D.) we have μὴ ἆρα αἱ ἡμέραι τὰ πάντα διατελοῦσι; ";Can time accomplish everything after all?"; (Edd.). From the inscrr. it is sufficient to quote Syll 393.4 (Roman) which also shows the adj.—διατελοῦς ἀρετῆς ἕνεκεν [ἧς ἔχων ] διατελεῖ. . . The standing intransitive use with participle, recognisable in all but one of the instances quoted above, can be illustrated to any extent.
