Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For περιπίπτω, ";fall in with,"; as in all its NT occurrences (Luke 10:30, Acts 27:41, James 1:2), cf. P Oxy XIV. 1639.20 (B.C. 73 or 44) ὅπου ἄν τῶι καθόλου περιπίπτῃς ἡμῖν, ";in any place whatsoever where you may encounter us"; (Edd.), P Tebt II. 278.32 (early i/A.D.) θυμοῦ περιπεσῖτε (= εῖται), ";he will meet with anger,"; P Kyi I. 28.220 (mantic—iv/A.D.) ἐὰν δ [ ] ὁ ἐχόμενος μερίμναις πολλαῖς περιπεσεῖται καὶ κακοπαθίαις, ";if the next (toe quiver) he will be involved in much anxiety and distress,"; and from the inscrr. Syll 226 (= .3 495).56 (c. B.C. 230) διότι μεγάλοις διαπτώμασι περιπεσεῖται ἡ πόλις, and the imprecatory formula to prevent violation of tombs as in C. and B. ii. p. 702, No. 636 (A.D. 234) ὃς ἂν κακουργέσι τοῦτο, τοιούταις (!) περιπέσοιτο συμφοραῖς.

The word is claimed as medical by Hobart p. 129 f., but for its wider usage cf. Wetstein ad Lk l.c., Field Notes p. 61, and add Pelagia-Legenden p. 9.18, where it is stated that a harlot cannot be baptized without sponsors, ἵνα μὴ πάλιν ἐν τοῖς αὐτοῖς εὑρεθῇ περιπίπτουσα.

The 1 aor. is seen in a new comic fragment (? Menander : Demiañ̯czuk Suppl. Com. p. 63) : —

ἄνθρωπος γὰρ ὤν

ἀνθρωπίναις περιέπεσα συμφοραῖς.
