";request,"; ";entreat,"; is found in P Petr II. 38 (c).48 (Ptol.) παραιτεῖ [σθαι ] κ [ατα ]πλεῖν εἰς [Ἀλε ]ξανδρεί [αν : cf. Mark 15:6 ABא (but see Field Notes, p. 43), Hebrews 12:19. For the meaning ";beg off from,"; as in Hebrews 12:25 (cf. Field Notes, p. 234), cf. BGU IV 1040.32 (ii/A.D.) τοὺς πράκτ [ορα ]ς π [αρ ]αιτῖσθαι, ";to beg off from the factors.";
Hence the stronger sense ";refuse,"; ";decline"; (1 Timothy 4:7; 1 Timothy 5:11; cf. Aristeas 184), in P Lond 1231.3 (A.D. 144) (= III. p. 108) παραιτούμενοι τὴν εἰς τὸ μ ̣[έ ]λλον with reference to ";resigning"; a lease of land, and BGU II. 625.6 (beg. iii/A.D.) (as amended Chrest. I. p. 37) γείνωσκε, ἄδελφε, ἐκληρώθην (Ephesians 1:11) εἰς τὰ Βουκόλια · οὐκ ἠδυνόμην παρετῆσε (l. ἠδυνάμην παραιτήσασθαι). In an edict of Germanicus Caesar, Preisigke 3924.37 (A.D. 19), παραιτοῦμαι is directly contrasted with ἀποδέχομαι.
See also the letter of the Emperor Claudius to the Alexandrines, P Lond 1912.49 (A.D. 41) ἀρχ íι ýιερέα δ᾽ ἐμὸν καὶ ναῶν κατασκευὰς παρετοῦμε (l. παραιτοῦμαι), ";I deprecate, however, the appointment of a high-priest to me and the erection of temples"; (Bell).
