Vocabulary of the Greek NT

μισέω, which survives in MGr μισῶ, is not so common in our sources as we might have expected, but cf. PSI III. 158.37 (iii/AD. ?) βαρυόσμους μεισουμένους ὑπὸ τῶν ἀ [σ ]τείων γυναικῶν, ";evil-smelling persons hated by refined women,"; ib. I. 41.22 (iv/A.D.) ἅπερ ἡ φύσις μεισῖ, P Oxy VI. 902.17 (c. A.D. 465) μισοῦσειν γὰρ οἱ νόμοι τοὺς τὰ ἄδικα διαπραττομέν [ο ]υς, ";for the perpetrators of injustice are hateful to the laws"; (Edd.), and the Christian amulet ib. VIII. 1151.2 (v/A.D.?) φεῦγε π ̣ν ̣(εῦμ)α ̣ μεμισιμένον (l. μεμισημένον). For the subst. μῖσος cf. Vett. Val. p. 242.25 ἡ ἐπιστήμη. . ὑπὸ τῆς ἀληθείας στηριζομένη τὸ. . μῖσος ἀποδιώξει, and the quotation from Menander Fragm. p. 187 s.v. κατατίθημι. With Menandrea p. 18.216 θεῖον δὲ μισεῖ μῖσος, cf. Psa. 138:22 (MT Psalms 139:22) , where the same cogn. acc. occurs.
