Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For ὅλως = ";entirely,"; ";altogether,"; cf. P Oxy IV. 743.22 (B.C. 2) καὶ γὰρ ἐγὼ ὅλος (l. ὅλως) διαπον [ο ]ῦμαι εἰ Ἕλενος χαλκοὺς ἀπόλε [σ ]εν, ";I am quite upset at Helenos’ loss of the money"; (Edd.), and for the meaning ";at all"; with a neg. verb, as in Matthew 5:34, cf. the letter of a wife to her husband, BGU IV. 1079.6 (time of Claudius’ or Nero) περὶ δὲ Σαραπᾶτος τοῦ υἱου ̣ͅ οὐ καταλέλυκε παρ᾽ ἐμὲ ὅλως, ἀλλὰ ἀπῆλ ̣θεν εἰς παρεμβολὴν ̣ στρατε ̣υ ̣σασ ̣θ ̣αι, ";but as regards our son Sarapas, he has not lodged with me at all, but has departed to the camp on military duty."; The meaning of the adv. in 1 Corinthians 5:1 has caused difficulty, but a certain support is lent to the local sense ";everywhere,"; which Weiss in Meyer .9 ad l. prefers (cf. Bachmann in Zahn’s Kommentar), by P Oxy IV. 744.4 (B.C. 1) (= Selections, p. 32) μὴ ἀγωνιᾷς ἐὰν ὅλως εἰσπορεύονται, ἐγὼ ἐν Ἀλεξανδρε < > ᾳ μένω, where ὅλως may perhaps imply all the writer’s fellow-workmen. For the meaning ";actually,"; adopted by the Revisers in 1 Cor l.c., we may cite ib. XIV. 1676.31 (iii/A.D.) καλῶς οὖν ποιήσεις ἐλ [θοῦσ ]α τῷ Μεσορὴ πρὸς [ήμᾶ ]ς ̣ ἵνα ὃλως ἴδωμέν σε, ";you will therefore do well to come to us in Mesore, in order that we may really see you"; (Edd.).
