Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This common LXX word (cf. Acts 2:17) may be illustrated by two passages from the Paris Papyri, both belonging to ii/B.C., P Par 44.5 (B.C. 153) (= Witkowski.2, p. 82) ἐγὼ γὰρ ἐνύπνια ὁρῶ πονηρά, 47.30 (c. B.C. 153) (= Selections, p. 23) ἀποπεπτώκαμεν πλανόμενοι ὑπὸ τῶν θεῶν καὶ πιστεύοντες τὰ ἐνύπνια, ";we have fallen from hope, being deceived by the gods and trusting in dreams"; : cf. the heading of P Leid C (B.C. 163–2) τὸ ἐνύπ [ν ]ειον ὃ [εἶ ]δεν Τάγης. From the inscrr. we may cite Syll 802.36 (iii/B.C.) where the lame and the blind became whole—ἐνύπνιον ἰδόν [τας μό ]νον (ἐνύπνιον = ὄψις), and Preisigke 685 (ii/B.C.) ἐνύπνια κρίνω, τοῦ θεοῦ πρόσταγμα ἔχων, τύχ᾽ ἀγαθᾶι.
