Vocabulary of the Greek NT

To the ordinary citations for this word = ";object of worship"; (Acts 17:23, 2 Thessalonians 2:4) we may add Arist. Apol. xii. οὐ γὰρ ἠρκέσθησαν [οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι ] τοῖς τῶν Χαλδαίων καὶ Ἑλλήνων σεβάσμασιν.

For σεβασμός see M. Anton, iv. 16 τὸν σεβασμὸν τοῦ λόγου, ";thy reverence of reason,"; and cf. Aristeas 179 σεβασμο ̣̣ν ἀποδοῦναι, ";to pay homage."; The adj. σεβάσμιος with reference to an oath may be seen in P Amh II. 140.10 (A.D. 349) ὀμνύν [τ ]ες τὸν θεῖο [ν κ ]αὶ σ [ε ]βάσμιον ὅρκο [ν τῶ ]ν πάντα νικών [των ] δεσποτῶν ἡμῶν Ἀγούστων, ";swearing the divine and holy oath of our all-victorious masters the Augusti,"; and the other citations in Preisigke Wörterb. s.v. ὅρκος.
