In accordance with its etymology παρρησία is used especially of ";freedom,"; ";boldness"; in speech, but it readily passes into the more general meaning ";confidence,"; as in Hebrews 3:6, 1 John 2:28, Job 27:10, Test. xii. patr. Reub iv. 2. This may be illustrated from P Par 63viii. 7 (B.C. 165) καλῶς ἔχειν ὑπέλαβον ταύτην ἔτι τὴν παρησίαν (for spelling, cf. Winer-Schmiedel Gr. p. 56) ἀγαγεῖν πρός σε, P Oxy VIII. 1100.15 (A.D. 206) με ]τὰ παρρησίας (cf. Acts 28:31), unfortunately in a broken context, and Kaibel 1096.5 παρησίαν ὁμοίαν οὐκ ἔχων βροτοῖς. Cf. also Aristeas 125 συμβουλευόντων παρρησίᾳ πρὸς τὸ συμφέρον τῶν φίλων, ";since friends unreservedly offer advice for one’s best interests"; (Thackeray).
In OGIS 323.10 (B.C. 159–8) εὐδοκι [μη ]κὼς ἐν ταῖς χρείαις ἁπάσαις κ [εκ ]όσμηκε τὸν αὑτοῦ [β ]ίον τῆι καλλίστηι παρρησίαι, the word seems to be equivalent to ";liberality,"; and in Vett. Val. p. 6.3 ζωῆς καὶ θανάτου παρρησίαν ἔχοντες, the editor renders π. by potentia. See also Artem. p. 24.22 μέτωπον ὑγιὲς. . . παρρησίαν καὶ εὐανδρίαν σημαίνει.
