Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The act. of this verb is obsolete in late Greek,

(1) For πορεύομαι = ";journey,"; ";go,"; cf. P Par 44.2 (B.C. 152) (= UPZ i. p. 327) γίνωσκέ με πεπορεῦσθαι (cf. Proleg. p. 229) εἰς Ἡρακλέους πόλιν ὑπὲρ τῆς οἰκίας, P Oxy VIII. 1143.2 (c. A.D. 1) τοῖς ἐκ τοῦ ἱεροῦ παστοφό (ροις) πορευομέ (νοις), ib. XII. 1480.7 (A.D. 32) ἐπορεύθην πρὸς Ἑρμογένην, P Ryl II. 234.8 (ii/A.D.) πορεύου, ἀντιφωνηθήσεται διὰ τῶν στρατηγῶν, ";go, the answer will be given through the strategi"; (Edd.), and P Oxy IX. 1219.4 (iii/A.D.) πορευόμενος εἰς τὴν Νεικίου, ";on his way to the city of Nicias.";

(2) With πορεύομαι of Christ’s journeying to death in Luke 22:22 (and perhaps Luke 13:33), we may compare the usage in Psa. 77꞉39 [MT Psalms 78:39]. See further Field Notes, p. 66, and for the relation of the verb to ὑπάγω, cf. Abbott Joh. Voc. p. 142 ff.

(3) An approximate ex. of the ethical use of πορεύομαι in 1 Peter 4:3 πεπορευμένους ἐν ἀσελγείαις is furnished by Sophocles O.T. 883 : εἰ δέ τις ὑπέροπτα χερσὶν ἢ λόγῳ πορεύεται (cited by Kennedy Sources, p. 107).

A wider secondary use appears in P Tor I. 1vi. 13 (B.C. 116) εἴπερ γε δὴ ἐνόμιζεν ἐκ τῆς ἀληθείας κατὰ νόμους ὁδῶι πορευόμενος τὸν ἐξ εὐθυδικίας λόγον συνίστασθαι, ";si revera legitimae viae insistens recto ordine causam instituere voluisset"; (Ed.). Cf. the compd. ἐπιπορεύομαι = ";act"; in ib.vii. 13, and in P Reinach 11.19 (B.C. 111) ἐάν τε ἐπέλθῃ, ἥ τ᾽ ἔφοδος Ὥρωι καὶ <τῶι > ὑπὲρ αὐτοῦ ἐπιπεπορευομένου ἄχυρος (l. ἐπιπορευομένωι ἄκυρος) ἔστωι, ";s’il exerce une poursuite pareille, elle sera nulle pour Hôros et pour celui qui aura agi en son nom"; (Ed.). See also s.vv. παραπορεύομαι and προσπορεύομαι.
