Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the later Attic form θαρρέω, which in the Κοινή, as in the more literary portions of the LXX (Thackeray Gr. i. p. 123) and in the NT (Paul, Heb), is interchanged with θαρσέω (see s.v. θαρσέω), cf. Thumb Hellen, p. 77. The verb = ";have confidence in,"; as in 2 Corinthians 7:16; 2 Corinthians 10:1 f., in P Oxy II. 237viii. 17 (A.D. 186) ἐὰν θαρρῇ τοῖς τῆς κατηγορίας ἐλέγχοις, τὸν μείζονα ἀγῶνα ε ̣[ ]σελεύσεται, ";if he has confidence in the proofs of his accusation, he shall enter upon the more serious law-suit"; (Edd.) : cf. P Oxy XII. 1468.9 (c. A.D. 258) ἐπὶ τὴν σὴν ἀνδρείαν καταφεύγω θαρρῶν τεύξεσθαι τῶν προσόντων μοι δικαίων, ";I appeal to your nobility with the full confidence that I shall obtain the rights due to me"; (Edd.), P Cairo Goodsp 15.19 (A.D. 362) θαρρω ̣̑ν ὁ αὐτὸς Ἰ. . .σακις τοῖς χρήμασι αὐτοῦ καὶ τοῦ πλούτου βούλεταί μ [α ]ι ἐξελάσαι ἀπὸ τῆς κώμης, ";the aforesaid Isakis, relying on his means and wealth, wishes to drive me from the village"; (Ed.). The sense of audere, rather than confidere, appears in P Oxy I. 68.19 (A.D. 131) μὴ τεθαρρηκαίναι (l. τεθαρρηκέναι) τ [ὸν ] Θέωνα προελθεῖν, ";without Theon having ventured to bring forward his claim"; (Edd.). In MGr θαρρῶ = ";believe,"; ";think.";
