Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In his farewell address to the elders of the Church in Ephesus, Paul lays stress on the fact that he had ";kept back"; nothing of the whole counsel of God, using this verb (οὐδὲν ὑπεστειλάμην, Acts 20:20 : cf. Field Notes, p. 132) : cf. P Oxy II. 246.26 (A.D. 66), where a sender of a property return swears by the Emperor Nero μὴ ὑπεστα ̣[λθ (αι), ";not to have prevaricated"; or ";kept back anything."; See also P Cairo Zen III. 59412.24 (iii/B.C.) οὗ ἕνεκεν ὑπεσταλμένοι εἰσίν, where the meaning may be ";have been concealed"; or ";withdrawn"; (see the editor’s note), P Tebt I. 24.51 (B.C.117) συνιστοροῦντες τὰ πλήθη τῶν ὑποστελλομένων, ";reckoning up together the amounts of what had been concealed"; (Edd.), and P Oxy III. 486.22 (A.D. 131) περὶ ὑπα [ρχό ]ντων τινῶν ἐλογοποιήσατο ὡς ὑποστελλόντων αὐτῷ, ";invented a claim with regard to certain property of which he said he was defrauded"; (Edd.). Add from the inscrr. Syll 246 ( = 3 547).10 (B.C. 211–210) οὔτε κακοπά [θι ]αν οὐδεμίαν οὔτε κί [ν ]δυνον ὑποστελλόμενος.

For the intrans. usage = ";come under,"; ";belong to,"; cf. P Oxy VIII. 1102.14 (c. A.D. 146) ἄρουραι. . . δο ̣κ ̣οῦσιν τῇ συνγραφοδιαθήκῃ μὴ ὑποστέλλειν, ";arourae appear not to come under the testamentary covenant"; (Ed.), ib. XVII. 2131.13 (A.D. 207) μηδ᾽ ὅλως ὑποστέλλων τῷ [ν ]υνὶ ἀμφοδογραμματεῖ, ";am not at all subject to the present districtscribe"; (Ed.), P Gen I. 16.16 (A.D. 207) ( = Chrest. I. p. 417) πάντα τὰ ὑποστέλλοντα τῇ κώμῃ, and PSI III. 187.7 (iv/A.D.) ἀπὸ τ [ῶν ὑ ]ποστελλόντων τῇ δεκαπρωτείᾳ.
