Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In the NT this word is found only in Acts 3:16, where it is rendered in the Vg integra sanitas : cf. P Oxy I. 123.6 (iii/iv A.D.) πάνυ θαυμάζω, υἱέ μου, μέχρις σήμερον γράμματά σου οὐκ ἔλαβον τὰ δηλοῦντά μοι τὰ περὶ τῆς ὁλοκληρίας ὑμῶν, ";I have been much surprised, my son, at not receiving hitherto a letter from you to tell me how you are"; (Edd.), ib. XII 1478.3 (Gnostic charm for victory—iii/iv. A.D.) δὸς νείκην ὁλοκληρίαν σαδίου (l. σταδίου) καὶ ὄχλου τῷ προκειμένῳ Σαραπάμμωνι, ";grant victory and safety in the racecourse and the crowd to the aforesaid Sarapammon";(Edd.), ib. X. 1298.5 (iv/A.D.) πρὸ παντὸς εὔχομε (=–μαι) τῷ κυρίῳ θεῷ περὶ τῆς ὁλοκληρίας σου καὶ τῶν φιλτάτων σου, ";before all else I pray to the Lord God for the prosperity of yourself and those dearest to you"; (Edd.), and BGU III. 948.4 (iv/v A.D.) πρὸ μὲν πάντων εὔχομε =μαι) τὸν παντοκράτοραν θεὸν τὰ πε [ρὶ τ ]ῆς ὑγίας σου καὶ ὁλοκληρίας σου χαίριν. See also the votive inscr. Syll 775 (=.3 1142).2 (i/ii A.D.) Μελτίνη [ ]πὲρ τῆς ὁλοκληρίας [τῶν ] ποδῶν εὐχὴν [ἀνέσ ]τησεν. The corresponding verb (not in LS) is fairly common in such formulae as the following—P Lips I. 110.7 (iii/iv A.D.) εὐ ̣χ ̣ο ̣ μενος ὅπως ὁλοκληροῦσάν σε καὶ ὑγιαίνουσαν ἀπολάβω, P Oxy X. 1299.3 (iv/A.D.) πρὸ μὲν πάντων εὔχομαί σοι ὑγιένειν (l. σε ὑγιαίνειν) καὶ ὁλοκληρεῖν παρὰ τῷ κυρίῳ θεῷ, and P Lond 1244.7 (iv/A.D.) ( = III. p. 244) παρακαλῶν τὸν θεὸν ἵνα σαι ἀπολάβω εὐθυμοῦντα καὶ εὐπυγμοῦντα καὶ ὁλοκληροῦντα.
