Thayer's Expanded Definition

τοίνυν (from the enclitic τοι and νῦν), from Pindar (and Herodotus) down, therefore, then, accordingly; contrary to the use of the more elegant Greek writing, found at the beginning of the sentence (cf. Lob. ad Phryn., p. 342f; (Winers Grammar, 559 (519f); Buttmann, § 150, 19)): Hebrews 13:13 (Isaiah 3:10; Isaiah 5:13); as in the better writings, after the first word: Luke 20:25 (yet T Tr WH put it first here also); 1 Corinthians 9:26 and Rec. in James 2:24 (Wis. 1:11 Wis. 8:9; 4 Macc. 1:13, 15ff).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";adoption."; Deissmann (BS p. 239) has drawn attention to the frequency of the phrase καθ᾽ υἱοθεσίαν in the inscrr., which ";lets us understand that Paul [Romans 8:15, Galatians 4:5 al.] was availing himself of a generally intelligible figure when he utilised the term υἱοθεσία in the language of religion."; Exx. are Priene 37.2 (ii/B.C.) Εὐφανίσκος Καλλιξείνου, καθ᾽ ὑοθ ̣[ε ]σίαν δὲ Νικασιδάμου, Syll 269 (= .3 586).2 (B.C. 196) Ν ]ικαγόρας Παμφ [ίλιδα, κα ]θ᾽ ὑοθεσίαν δὲ [Νικαγόρα, ib. 555 (= .3 977)7 (end ii/B.C.) Τιμ [ ]θεος Σωσικλεῦς, κατὰ δὲ ὑοθεσίαν Ἰσοπόλιος. See also Hicks CR i. p. 45 f., iii. P. 333, and for a literary ex. Diog. Laert. iv. 9. 53 νεανίσκων τινῶν υἱοθεσίας ποιεῖσθαι.

From the papyri we may cite P Oxy IX. 12068 (A.D. 335) ὁμολογοῦμεν ἡμῖς [μὲν ὅτ ]ε ̣ Ἡρακλῆς καὶ ἡ γ [υ ]νὴ Εἰσάριον ἐκδεδωκέναι σοὶ τῷ Ὡρίωνι τὸν ἐξ ̣ [ἡμ ]ω ̣̑ν υἱὸν Πατε ̣ρ ̣[μοῦθ ]ιν ὡς ἐτῶν δύο εἰς υἱοθεσίαν, ἐμὲ δὲ τὸν [Ὡρίων ]α ̣ ε ̣̀χ ̣ε ̣ι ̣ν ̣ [τ ̣ο ̣ῦτ ]ο ̣ν ̣ γνήσιον υἱὸν πρὸς τὸ μένειν αὐτῷ τὰ ἀπ [ὸ τ ]ῆς διαδοχῆς τῆς κληρονομίας μου δίκαια, ";we agree, Heracles and his wife Isarion on the one part, that we have given away to you, Horion, for adoption our son Patermouthis, aged about two years, and I Horion on the other part, that I have him as my own son so that the rights proceeding from succession to my inheritance shall be maintained for him"; (Ed.) : cf. .14, .16, .20, and the editor’s introduction. We may further cite P Lips I. 2812 (A.D. 381) ( = Archiv iii. p. 173 ff.) ὥσ ]τ ̣᾽ ἐμὲ τὸν [ ]δελ [φ ]ὸν αὐτοῦ Σιλβανὸν. . . ἔχειν [πρὸς ?] υ ̣ι ̣̔οθεσίαν : cf. 14, 17, 22, 24, 27. This last papyrus shows also the verb υἱοθετέω, .22 τῶν ἐμῶν πραγμάτων κληρονόμον υἱοθετηθέντα μοι. For υἱοποιέομαι see Gnomon 41 (c. A.D. 150) ( = BGU V. p. 21).
