Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the conative present ";apply persuasion,"; ";seek to persuade,"; as in Acts 26:28, see Proleg. p. 147. The corresponding aor. ἔπεισα is seen in P Tor I. 1viii. 36 (B.C. 116 ) εἴπερ γε δὴ ἐνόμιζεν ἔχειν τι δίκαιον, δι᾽ οὗ δύναται τὸν κριτὴν πεῖσαι, and BGU I. 164.26 (ii/iii A.D.) παρακαλῶ οὖν σε, φίλτατε, ἤδη ποτὲ πεῖσαι αὐτὸν τοῦ ἐλθεῖν Ct. also P Oxy II. 294.22 (A.D. 22) ἐὰν μή τι πίσωσι τὸν ἀρχιστάτορα δο [ῦν ]αι εἱκανὸν ἕως ἐπὶ διαλογισμόν, ";unless indeed they shall persuade the chief usher to give security for them until the inquiry."; The 2nd perf. πέποιθα c. dat., which is rare in Hellenistic prose, is found in BGU IV. 1141.17 (B.C. 14) πέποιθα γὰρ ἐματῶι, persuasi mihi : cf. 2 Corinthians 10:7, Philippians 1:14, Philemon 1:21. In PSI V. 538.7 (iii/B.C.) the intrans. πέποιθα is construed c. gen., which the editor attributes to Ionic influence—ἐπίστηι δὲ καὶ σὺ διότι τοῦ ὀψωνίου πεποίθαμεν, ";sai anche tu che sull"; ὀψώνιον facciamo assegnamento.";

For the mid. or pass, ";am persuaded,"; we may cite P Petr II. 11 (1).4 (mid. iii/B.C.) (= Selections, p. 7) ἐὰν γὰρ σὺ παραγένηι, πέπεισμαι ῥαιδίως με τῶι βασιλεῖ συσταθήσεσθαι, ";for, if you come, I am sure that I shall easily be introduced to the king,"; BGU IV. 1118.40 (B.C. 22) πείθεσθαι περὶ τῆς τούτω ̣ν ̣ ἀξίας, P Oxy H. 268.7 (A.D. 58) ὃ καὶ ἐπε [ίσθη ]σαν κεφάλαιον, ";the sum which they severally consented to accept"; (Edd.), ib. X. 1293.13 (A.D. 117–38) ἄλλος ξένος ἐστίν οὗ δεῖ με πισθῆναι ὡς ἐσχήκατε, ";another stranger whose word I have to take that you have received it"; (Edd.), P Ryl II. 176.3 (A.D. 201–11) ἂς ἐπείσθη íν ý λαβεῖν παρ᾽ αὐτ (ῆς), ";the sum which she was induced to accept from her"; (Edd.), and P Fay 133.12 (iv/A.D.) μὴ πισθεὶς οὖν τοῖς καρπώναις, ";without being persuaded by the fruit-buyers.";

In P Lips I. 28.28 (A.D. 381) εὐδοκῶ καὶ πίθομαι πᾶσι τοῖς ἐγγεγραμμένοις ὡς πρόκειται, the word passes into the meaning ";obey"; : cf. the letter of Epicurus to a child ex vol. Hercul. 176 (iii/B.C.) (= Selections, p. 5f.)—.10 ε [ἰ ὑ ]γιαίνεις. . . καὶ πάπαι καὶ Μάτρω [ν ]ι πάντα πε [ ]θη [ι, and .14 ἐγὼ καὶ ο [ ] λοιποὶ πάντες σε μέγα φιλοῦμεν, ὅτι τούτοις πείθῃ πάντα, also P Ryl II. 77.34 (A.D. 192) πειθόμενος τ ̣η ̣̑ ἐμαυτοῦ πατρίδι, ";being obedient to my native city.";
