Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Petr III. 21 (g).13 (iii/B.C.) ἐλοιδόρησα ̣ς φαμένη με ᾑρηκέναι, BGU III. 1007.6 (iii/B.C.) ἐλοιδόρουν με ἐπὶ πλέο ̣[ν ?, P Tebt I. 44.16 (B.C. 114) (= Chrest. I. p. 148) ἐλοιδ [όρησέν με ] καὶ ἀσχημό [νει, P Oxy II. 237vi. 21 (A.D. 186) ἐπὶ φθ ̣ο ̣νῳ δὲ μο ̣ν ̣ο ̣ν ̣ [λο ]ι ̣δορου ̣μενος κ ̣α ̣ι ̣, δεινὰ πάσχων ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ, and from the inscrr. Syll 737.75 ff. (c. A.D. 175) ἐὰν. . εὑρεθῇ τις. . ὑβρίζων ἢ λοιδορῶν τινα, ὁ μὲν λοιδορηθεὶς ἢ ὑβρισθεὶς παραστανέτω δύο ἐκ τῶν ἰοβάκχων ἐνόρκους ὅτι ἤκουσαν ὑβριζόμενον ἢ λοιδορούμενον, καὶ ὁ ὑβρίσας ἢ λοιδορήσας ἀποτιν [νύ ]τω τῷ κοινῷ λεπτοῦ δρ (αχμὰς) κ ̄ε ̄. To show the strong character of the word, we may cite Calvin on 1 Corinthians 4:12 : ";Λοιδορία is a harsher railing, which not only rebukes a man, but also sharply bites him, and stamps him with open contumely. Hence λοιδορεῖν is to wound man as with an accursed sting.";
