Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Lips I. 26.5 f. is late (beginning of iv/A.D.), but ὁμολογοῦμ ̣ε ̣ν ̣ [ἑκο ]υσι ̣α ̣ καὶ α [ ]θαιρέτῳ καὶ ἀμε [τα ]νοήτῳ γνώμῃ seems to be a legal formula, such as would presumably suffer little change with time : it occurs a little earlier (A.D. 289) in P Strass I. 2931, the same three words (adverb form) in the same order. Its active force agrees with that in Romans 2:5. (Norden Agnostos Theos p. 135 translates the word here ";unbussfertig,"; and refers to Bonhöffer Epiktet u. das NT p. 106 f., who claims that in this word (as in μετάνοια , -νοεῖν ) ";gewissermassen der Gegensatz des antiken und des christlichen Denkens spiegle.";) But in CPR I. 216.5 (i/ii A.D.) κυρίαν καὶ βεβαίαν καὶ ἀμετανόητον , P Grenf II. 68, 70 (iii/A.D.)—duplicate deeds of gift—ὁμολογῶ χαρίζεσθαί σοι χάριτι ἀναφαιρέτῳ καὶ ἀμετανοήτῳ . . . μέρος τέταρτον κτλ . there is a passive sense ";not affected by change of mind,"; like ἀμεταμέλητος in Romans 11:29. So P Lond 1164 (k)5 (A.D. 212) (= III. p. 166) κυρίως καὶ ἀναφα ̣ι ̣ρ ̣έτως καὶ [ ]μετανοήτως .
