Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ὑποβάλλω in the rare sense of ";suborn"; is found in the NT only in Acts 6:11, where Field (Notes, p. 113) cites from Stephanus Appian B.C. i. 74 ἐπὶ δὲ τούτοις, ἐς ὑπόκρισιν ἀρχῆς ἐννόμου, μετὰ τοσούσδε φόνους ἀκρίτους ὑπεβλήθησαν κατήγοροι τῷ ἱερεῖ τοῦ Διὸς Μερόλᾳ. For a somewhat similar use of ὑπόβλητος, cf. P Oxy II. 257.42 (A.D. 94–5) ὀμν [ύω ] . . . εἶνα [ι ἐκ τῆς ] Ἰσιδώρας τὸν Θεογένην. [. . . . . . .] καὶ μὴ θέσει μ [ηδ ]ὲ ὑπόβλητο [ν, ";I swear that Theogenes is the son of Isidora, and neither adopted nor supposititious"; (Edd.), similarly ib. X. 1266.34 (A.D. 98), and ib. XIV. 1630.9 (A.D. 222?) Ἰσιδώρου ὑποβλήτῳ χρησαμένῳ ( = -ένου) [ὀνόματι ?, ";Isodorus using a false name."; In Gnomon 70 ( = BGU V. p. 28) ὑπόβλητοι refers to ";dummy"; persons.

Ὑποβάλλω in the more literal sense of ";subject,"; ";submit,"; occurs in P Oxy XII. 1468.7 (c. A.D. 258) τοῖς κακουργεῖν προχείρως ἔχουσιν τέχνῃ. . . τοῖς ἐκ τῶν νόμων ὡρισμένοις ἐπιτειμίοις ὑποβάλλει ἡ σὴ εὔτονος καὶ περὶ πάντα ἀκοίμητος πρόνοια, ";the wicked designs of those who are ready to commit crimes by artifice are subjected to the decreed penalties of the laws by your active and in all cases unresting vigilance"; (Edd.), ib. VIII.1101.25 (A.D. 367–70) ἐὰν δὲ ῃ ] βουλευτή ̓, δ ̣ημεύσει ὑποβάλλω, ";and if he is a senator, I subject him to confiscation of property"; (Ed.).

For the meaning ";suggest,"; ";prompt,"; cf. ib. XVI. 1837.8 (early vi/A.D.) ὑποβάλλι τῷ μεγαλοπρε (πεστάτῳ), ";he is suggesting to his magnificence"; (Edd.). From this it is an easy transition to ";nominate,"; as in ib. VI. 900.6 (A.D. 332) ὑποβληθέντος ε ̣̀τ ̣ι εἰς κονδουκτορίαν, ";being nominated besides as contractor,"; and .8 ὑπὲρ τῶν ἐνιαυσίως εἰς τοῦτο ὑπ [ο ]βαλλομένων, ";on behalf of the annual nominees to this office.";
