Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the idea of ";worthlessness"; (rather than ";active moral evil";) often associated with this word, we may compare its weakened sense in such passages as P Oxy III, 530.22 (ii/A.D.) οὐθὲν γὰρ φαῦλον περὶ ἡμᾶς ἐστ [ι ]ν, ";for there is nothing the matter with us"; (Edd.), ib. XIV. 1768.8 (iii/A.D.) ὅπως εὐθυμῆτε ὡς οὐδέν ἐστιν [φ ]αῦλον πε [ρὶ ἡμ ]α ̣ͅς, P Flor II. 208.8 (A.D. 256) μὴ τὰ ἐν αὐτῦςοῖς᾽ φαῦλα, ";not the things of no moment in them (sc. baskets),"; and ib. 247.17 (A.D. 256) ἵνα μὴ χρεία γένηται τρός σε φάύλων γραμμάτων, ";harsh letters."; In P Reinach 54.11, .13 (iii/iv A.D.) the adj. is applied to ";bad"; wine.

The stronger meaning, as generally in the NT (Joh. 3:20, al.), is seen inP Leid Wxiv. 116 (ii/iii A.D.) (=II. p. 129) ἐὰν εἴπῃ τι φαῦλον, λέγε, ";si dicat quid mali, die,"; and perhaps P Oxy IX. 1220.11 (iii/A.D.) οὐδὲν βλέπω φαύλου παρ᾽ ἐμοί, ";I see nothing bad in my behaviour"; (Ed.).

The adverb is seen in Menander Σαμία 165 ὅτε φαύλως ἔπραττες, ";when you were poor"; (Allinson).
