Vocabulary of the Greek NT


From its trans, use ";bring together,"; as in Acts 19:19, συμφέρω passes into the intrans. sense ";come together,"; as e.g. of marriage union in P Oxy III. 496.10 (A.D. 127) σ ]υνφερομένων δ᾽ αὐτῶν εἴη μὲν ὑγεία, ";when they come together, may they enjoy health,"; and so ib. 497.11 (early /A.D.).

The impers. συμφέρει, ";it is expedient,"; is specially common, e.g. P Fay 112.17 (A.D. 99) συνφέρι γὰρ. . . . αὐτὸν [σ ]καφῆναι, ";for it is an advantage that it should be dug,"; P Oxy III. 471.44 (speech of an advocate—ii/A.D.) συνφέ [ρει τοί ]νυν τοὔλαττο [ν μόν ]ον ὁμολογεῖν, ";it is best to acknowledge only the lesser fault"; (Edd.), P Ryl II. 244.11 (iii/A.D.) οὐ συμφέρει ἀγοράσαι, ";it is inexpedient to buy,"; P Oxy I. 121.21 (iii/A.D.) οὕτως ποίησον, καὶ συνφέρει, and ib. IX. 1220.19 (iii/A.D.) τοῦτο συμφέρι εἵνα. (for constr. cf. Matthew 5:29; Proleg. p. 210) μὴ ἀπόληται ἀ ̣μ ̣ελίᾳ, ";this will be of use to prevent their perishing of neglect"; (Ed.).

For the participle, as in Acts 20:20, Hebrews 12:10, cf. PSI IV. 440.15 (iii/B.C.) πρὸς τὸ συμφέρον αὐτῶι, and P Amh II. 33.25 (c. B.C. 157) τούτου γὰρ γενομένου οὐθὲν τῶν ὑμῖν συμφερόντων διαπεσεῖται, ";for if this is done, your interests will not suffer damage"; (Edd.).


For τὸ σύμφορον used as a subst. = ";profit,"; ";advantage,"; as in 1 Corinthians 7:35; 1 Corinthians 10:33, cf. P Oxy XIV. 1676.25 (iii/A.D.) τὸ σύνφορόν σοι ποίει, ";do what suits you"; (Edd.). For συμφορά see P Oxy VIII. 1121.15 (A.D. 295) ὡς ἐμοῦ περὶ τὴν συμφορὰν οὔσης, ";while I was occupied with my trouble"; (Ed.), and Bacchyl. XIII. 3 f. συμφορὰ δ᾽ ἐσθλόν τ᾽ ἀμαλδύνει βαρύτλατος μολοῦσα, ";fortune can crush worth, if she comes fraught with suffering"; (Jebb).
