Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this verb which in the NT is confined to 1 Corinthians 5:8, but is frequent in the LXX, cf. BGU II. 646.6 (A.D. 193), an order issued by a prefect during the short reign of the Emperor Pertinax—ἵνα πάντες ῒδιῆτα [ι ] (l. εἰδῆτε) καὶ ταῖς ι ̔σαις ἡμέραις ἑορτάσητ [α ]ι (l. ἑορτάσητε). See also OGIS 493.25 (ii/A.D.) κ [αθ᾽ ἕκαστον ἐνιαυτὸν ] ἑορτάζειν τὴν γενέθλιον αὐ [τοῦ καὶ πᾶσιν ] ἀνθρώποις αἰτίαν ἀγαθῶν ἡμέ [ραν, with reference to a birthday celebration.
