Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";have leisure"; : cf. P Hib I. 55.6 (B.C. 250) ο ] ̣ γ ̣α ̣̣ρ σχολάζω μένειν πλείονα χ ̣ρ ̣[όνον, ";for I have no leisure to remain longer"; (Edd.), PSI V. 530.7 (iii/B.C.) καλῶς δ᾽ ἂν ποήσαις ὑποζύγιον δοὺς ἐὰν ἦι σχολ ̣α ̣ζον, BGU I. 93.19 (ii/iii A.D.) ἐὰ ]ν. . δύνατόν σοι ᾖ, μετ᾽ αὐτῆς κατέλθῃς πρὸς ἐμέ, ἐὰν δὲ μὴ σχολάζῃς, διαπέμψεις αὐτὴν διὰ τῆς μητρός μου, ib. II. 424.13 (ii/iii A.D.) οὐ γὰρ ἐσχόλασον (l. ἐσχόλαζον) ἀπελθεῖν πρὸς αὐτὴν καὶ μέμφομαί σε πολλά, and P Oxy VII. 1070.56 (iii/A.D.) ἐν τῷ παρόντι οὐ σχολάζομεν ἑτέροις ἐξερχόμενοι, ";at present we are not at leisure and are visiting others"; (Ed.).

For the derived meaning ";have leisure for,"; and hence ";devote myself to,"; as in 1 Corinthians 7:5, cf. P Lond V. 1836.14 (iv/A.D.), where the writer asks that Sarapion should be freed from his present duties, and so τοῖς ἡμῶν [πρ ]άγμασι σ ̣χ ̣ολάζειν, ";be at leisure for our affairs,"; and an unpublished Bremen papyrus of Roman times (cited by GH ad P Oxy VII. 1065) ἴσθ δὲ ὅτι οὐ μέλλω θεῷ σχολάζειν, εἰ μὴ πρότερον ἀπαρτίσω τὸν υἱόν μου : cf. Preisigke 4284.15 (A.D. 207) πρὸς τὸ ἐκ τῆς σῆς βοηθείας ἐκδικηθέντες δυνηθῶμεν (sic) τῇ γῇ σχολάζειν, P Par 69i. 8 (day-book of a strategus—A.D. 232) (= Chrest. I. p. 61) τοῖ [ς διαφ ]έρουσι ἐσχόλασεν, P Cornell 52.3 (late iii/A.D.) ἐν τῇ χθὲς ἦ ̣λ ̣θον εἰς τὴν Τακόνα καὶ ἐσχόλασα τῇ καταστ ̣άσει τῶν ἄλλων λιτουργιῶν, ";yesterday I came to Tacona and engaged in the induction of the other liturgical officials"; (Edd.), also OGIS 569.23 (iv/A.D.) διατετάχθαι δὲ τ ]ῇ τῶν ὁμογενῶν ὑμῶν θεῶν θρησκείᾳ σχολά [ζειν ἐμμενῶς ὑπὲρ ] τῆς αἰωνίου καὶ ἀφθάρτου βασιλείας ὑμῶν, and Test. xii. patr. Judges 1:20 δύο πνεύματα σχολάζουσι τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ, τὸ τῆς ἀληθείας καὶ τὸ τῆς πλάνης.
