Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The appeal to the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob (cf. Mark 12:26) is very common in the magic papyri, e.g, P Par 574.1231 f. (iii/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 113 f.) χαῖρε φνουθι ν Ἁβραάμ · χαῖρε πνουτε ν Ἰ. . .σάκ · χαῖρε πνουτε ν Ἰ. . .ακώβ, ";hail, spirit of Abraham"; : see further Deissmann BS p. 282, where Orig. c. Cels. v. 45 is quoted to the effect that these Hebrew names had to be left untranslated in the adjurations if the power of the incantation was not to be lost, and ib. p. 316 on the tendency of the early Christians to prefer the ";Biblical"; form Ἰακώβ to the Graecized Ἰάκωβος. Cf. also the sepulchral inscr. Preisigke 2034.13 ἀνάπαυσον τὴν ψυχὴν τοῖς δούλοις σου πιστὰ ἐν κόλποις Αβρὰμ καὶ Ἰσὰκ καὶ Ἰακώβ. For the spelling Ἰακούβ see Wünsch AF 3.2 (Imperial age).
