Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";fear";: OGIS 33917 (c. B.C. 120) διά τε τὸν ἀπὸ τῶν γειτνιώντων Θραικῶν φόβον, P Pay 2121 (A.D. 134) τῷ τοῦ προστίμου φόβῳ, ";by the fear of incurring penalties,"; P Oxy XIV. 166819 (iii/A.D.) ὁ ἡγεμὼν ἀμνησίαν ἔπεμψεν ἐνθάδε καὶ οὐκέτι φόβος οὐδὲ εἶς ἔνει, ";the praefect has sent an amnesty here, and there is no longer any fear at all"; (Edd.), and BGU II. 5471 (Byz.) μέγας φόβος ἐπίκειται ἡμῖν. For the plur. as in 2Co. 7:5, see Syll 168 (= 3 326)21 (B.C. 307–6) καὶ φόβων κ [αὶ κινδύνων μεγάλων τοὺς ] Ἕλληνας περἷ στάντων.

The reverential fear towards God, which appears in such a passage as Act. 9:31, may be illustrated from P Lond 191412 (A.D. 335?) φόβον θεοῦ ἒχοντες ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ : cf. ib. IV. 139318. In 2Co. 5:11 Field (Notes, p. 183) prefers the rendering ";terror,"; as against RV ";fear.";
