For the primary meaning ";appeal,"; ";exhortation"; (as in 1 Thessalonians 2:3, 2 Corinthians 8:4) cf. P Grenf I. 32.10 (B.C. 102) δι [ὰ τ ]ὰς ἡμῶν παρακλήσεις, with reference to the ";appeals"; made to allow three soldiers to come to a certain spot, and P Tebt II. 392.26 (A.D. 134–5) of the insertion of a name in an agreement of indemnity at the instance of others—κα [τ ]ὰ παράκλησιν γέγραπται αὐτῶν. See also the late P Flor III. 323.6 (A.D. 525) δεή ]σεις καὶ παρακλή [σ ]εις προσ [ε ]νήνοχά σ ̣ο ̣ι ̣, and from the inscrr. Syll 552 (= .3695).42 (after B.C. 129) κατευχὴν καὶ παράκλησιν παντὸς τοῦ πλήθους ποιεῖσ [θαι.
On the semi-technical use of παράκλησις in Luke 2:25 with reference to the coming of the Messiah see Dalman Words, p. 109 f., and on the similar meaning ";comfort"; (not ";invocation"; as Hort Ecclesia p. 55) in Acts 9:31 see Swete Holy Spirit in the NT p. 96 f. As against the derivation of Βαρνάβας = υἱὸς παρακλήσεως, see s.v. Βαρνάβας.
