Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the intrans. use, as in 1 Peter 2:6 (cf. Blass-Debrunner § 308) we may quote P Oxy II. 249.24 (A.D. 80) διαθήκη ὡς περιέχει, ";in the will as it stands"; or ";as it is contained in the will"; : cf. ib. 286.13 (A.D. 82) ἐφ᾽ οἷς ἄλλοις ἡ ἀσφάλεια περιέχει, ";with the other guarantees contained in the agreement"; (Edd.), P Fay 96.20 (A.D. 122) μενούσης κυρίας τῆς μισθώσεως ἐφ᾽ οἷς περιέχει πᾶσει, ";the lease in all its provisions remaining valid"; (Edd.), P Oxy I. 95.34 (A.D. 129) ὡς καὶ ἡ ἰδιόγραφος πρᾶσις περιέχει, ";as the autograph contract states"; (Edd.), ib. IX. 1220.29 (iii/A.D.) the accounts will show the details ὡς περιέχι τὸ πι [τ ]τάκιον, ";as contained in the memorandum,"; and Syll 929 (=.3685).21 (B.C. 139) καθ ]ότι τὰ. . . γράμματα περιέχει, also .51 τοῦ δόγματος περιέχοντος, ";the decree running thus"; (words follow). In ib..75 περιεχόμενον is pass. (c. dat.) = ";surrounded"; : cf. Luke 5:9.

In P Lond 1178.13 (A.D. 194) (= III. p. 216, Selections, p. 99) the Emperor Claudius says χρυσοῦν σ ̣[τέ ]φ [α ]νον ἡδέως ἔλαβον σύμβολον περιέχοντα τῆς · ὑμετέρας πρός με εὐσεβείας, ";I received with pleasure the golden crown as an expression of your loyal devotion towards me,"; which would illustrate the trans. use in the TR of Acts 23:25 : cf. also P Tebt I. 44.8 (B.C. 114) χάριν τῆς περιεχούσης με ἀρρωστίας, and Menander Fragm. 660.2 p. 193 περιέχων ἐγκώμιον, ";containing commendation."; Searles Lexicographical Study p. 102 cites a Delphic inscr. of A.D. 50, Collitz 2208.10 εἰ δὲ μὴ παραμένοι καθὼς ἁ ὠνὰ περιέχει, where the verb has the unusual meaning ";stipulate.";
