Vocabulary of the Greek NT

πρόνοια = ";providence"; occurs first in the Greek Bible in Sap 14.3, but is not found in this sense in the NT, where it is = ";forethought,"; ";care"; (Acts 24:3 : cf. Hesych. πρόνοια · προενθύμησις, ἐπιμέλεια, φροντίς) : cf. P Hib I. 79.3 (c. B.C. 260) (= Witkowski .2, p. 25) ὧν πρόνοιαν ποιεῖ, ";the objects of your care"; (Edd.), BGU II. 531i. 7 (ii/A.D.) τῇ προνοίᾳ [σο ]υ ε ̣ ̣χαρισ [τῶ ?, P Flor II. 131.7 (A.D. 257) τὴν τοῦ χό [ρ ]του πρόνοιαν, and the probably Christian P Oxy XIV. 1682.6 (iv/A.D.) (= Ghedini, p. 189) ἡ μὲν τοῦ θεοῦ πρόνοια παρέξει τὸ μετὰ ὁλοκληρίας σε τὰ οἰκεῖα ἀπολαβεῖν, ";may the divine providence grant that you may be restored in security to your home"; (Edd.). See also the Delphic precept Syll.3 1268i. 7 π ]ρόνοιαν τ [ ]μ [α.

For the phrase πρόνοιαν ποιοῦμαι, as in Romans 13:14, cf. P Amh II. 40.12 (ii/B.C.) ὅθεν ὑμῶν μηδεμίαν πρόνοιαν ποησαμένων ἠναγκάσθην. . . ἀποστῆσαι τῆς γῆς τὸν Ἄρειον, ";therefore as you had made no provision for your interests I was obliged to remove Arius"; (Edd.), P Oxy VI. 899.17 (A.D. 200) ὅπως ὁ ἑκάστης κώμης πραγματικὸς πρόνοιαν ποιήση [ται, P Flor I. 2.207 (A.D. 265) τῆς ̣ τοῦ ἱ [ερωτά ]του ταμείου ἀσφαλείας πρόνοιαν ποιήσ [η ]σθε, and from the inscrr. Priene 71.26 (ii/B.C.) ἡ Πριηνέων πρόνοια ᾓν ποιοῦνται : other exx. in Rouffiac Recherches, p. 72.
