Vocabulary of the Greek NT

(neut. of ταχύς as adv.), ";quickly"; (Matthew 5:25 al. and common in LXX). See P Par 45.5 (B.C. 152) (= UPZ i. p. 329) κἀαυτὸς παρέσομαι ταχύ, P Oxy IV. 743.41 (B.C. 2) καλῶς δὲ γέγονεν τὸ ταχὺ αὐτὸν ἐλθεῖν, ὑφηγήσεται γάρ σοι, ";it is well for him to come quickly, for he will instruct you"; (Edd.), and BGU II. 423.17 (soldier’s letter to his father—ii/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 91) ἐκ τούτου ἐλπίζω ταχὺ προκόσαι (l. προκόψαι) τῶν θε [ ]ν θελόντων, ";in consequence of this I hope to be quickly promoted, if the gods will.";

Ταχὺ ταχύ is a common formula in incantations, e.g. P Hawara 312.8 (ii/A.D. in Archiv v. p. 393 ἄρτι ἄρτι ταχὺ ταχὺ ἐξ ψυχῆς καὶ καρδίας, and the Gnostic amulet P Oxy VII. 1060.8 (vi/A.D.) ἀπάλλαξον τὸν οἶκον τοῦτον ἀπὸ παντὸς κακοῦ ἑρπετοῦ <καὶ > πράγματος ταχὺ ταχύ, ";free this house from every evil reptile and thing, quickly, quickly"; : see also Deissmann BS, p. 289, and LAE2, p. 421, and for the repetition cf. Proleg. p. 97.
