Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";Nowhere in profane authors,"; says Grimm. Its place in the vernacular is proved, however, with singular decisiveness by a private letter almost contemporary with the Biblical citations. BGU IV. 1079.20 (A.D. 41) (= Selections, p. 40), μὴ ἵνα ἀναστατώσῃς ἡμᾶς, ";do not drive us out,"; and later by the boy’s letter, P Oxy I. 119.10 (ii/iii A.D.) (= Selections, p. 103) ἀναστατοῖ με · ἆρρον (l. ἆρον) αὐτόν, ";he quite upsets me—off with him"; : cf. also P Strass I. 5.16 (A.D. 262) ἀν [άσ ]τ ̣ατο ̣ν τ ̣ὸν πρ ̣[ε ]σβύτην π ̣[ε ]π ̣οίηντα [ι ]—a reversion to the classical locution.
