Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";where,"; as in Mark 2:4, is seen in P Oxy I. 76.13 (A.D. 179) ὅπου σὺν τῷ ἀνδρὶ καταμένω, ";where I live with my husband,"; in P Lond 854.8 (i/ii A.D.) (= III. p. 206), an interesting account of a journey—εἰς Λιβύην ὅπου Ἄμμων πᾶσιν ἀνθρώποις χρησμῳδεῖ, ";to Libya, where Ammon sings oracles to all men,"; and in the question to an oracle P Oxy XII. 1477.2 (iii/iv A.D.) εἶ μένω ὅπου ὑπάγω; ";shall I remain where I am going?"; For the meaning ";whither"; (ὅποι is not found in the NT), as in John 7:34, see Ostr 1162.5 (Rom.) ὅπου θέλει —with reference to the sending of certain measures of wheat. Ὅπου ἄν (ἐάν) = ";wheresoever,"; as in Mark 9:18, may be illustrated from P Eleph 1.5 (B.C. 311–10) (= Selections, p. 2) εἶναι δὲ ἡμᾶς κατὰ ταὐτὸ (cf. Acts 14:1) ὅπου ἂν δοκῆι ἄριστον εἶναι, ";and that we shall live to-gether wherever may seem best,"; P Oxy XIV. 1639.20 (B.C. 73 or 44?) ὅπου ἂν τῶι καθόλου περιπίπτῃς ἡμῖν, ";in any place whatsoever where you may encounter us"; (Edd.), and ib. III. 484.20 (A.D. 138) ὅπου ἐὰν ὁ κράτιστος ἡγεμὼν Αὐίδιος Ἡλιόδωρος ἐπ᾽ ἀγαθῷ τὸν νόμον διαλογίζηται, ";wherever his highness the praefect Avidius Heliodorus holds his auspicious court for the nome,"; (Edd.); and = ";whithersoever,"; as in Luke 9:57, from ib. IV. 728.11 (A.D. 142) μετενέγκαι ὅ [π ]ου ἐὰν αἱρῆται, ";transport it to any place that he may choose,"; with reference to a crop that had been cut. With John 14:4 cf. Epict. iv. 7. 14 ὅπου ἂν ἀπέλθω, ἐκεῖ μοι καλῶς ἔσται (cited by Sharp, p. 89), and with 2 Peter 2:11 ";whereas,"; cf. Aristeas 149 and see P Flor I. 61.46 (A.D. 85) (as revised Chrest. II. p. 89) οὐχ ὅπου διαλογισμοὶ καὶ ἡγεμόνες παραγενόμενοι. The use of the relative adv. ὅπου (ὁποῦ, ποῦ) for the ordinary relative in MGr is illustrated by Thumb Handbook p. 93, e.g. ὁ ἄθρωπος ()ποῦ ἦρθε, ";the man who came.";
