Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the meaning ";discipline,"; ";chasten,"; which this verb frequently has in Paul, cf. the abject appeal of a prodigal to his mother, BGU III. 846.11 (ii/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 94) παιπαίδ ̣δευμαι καθ᾽ ὃν δῖ (l. δεῖ) τρόπον, ";chastened I have been as I deserve."; The meaning is more general ";instruct,"; ";bring up,"; in PSI IV. 424.15 (iii/B.C.) ἐστὶν δὲ πεπαι ̣δευμένος πᾶσαν παιδείαν, and BGU II. 423.16 (a soldier to his father—ii/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 91) με ἐπαίδευσας καλῶς. See also Syll 518 (=.3 956).4 (2nd hall v/B.C.) ὅπως ἂν οἱ παῖδες παιδεύωνται οἱ ἐν τῶι δήμωι, and the striking epitaph Kaibel 615.7 (ii/iii A.D.) παιδεύθην, παίδευσα. Kennedy (Sources, p. 102) cites Polyb. ii. 9. 6 παιδεύεσθαι πρὸς τὸ μέλλον, ";recevoir une bonne leçon pour l’avenir"; (Schweighäuser). For the stronger meaning of actual blows in Luke 23:16, see Wetstein ad l., and cf. the use of νουθετέω in Plut. Sertor. 19 πληγαῖς νουθετήσας, and Headlam’s note on Herodas VII. 11.
