Vocabulary of the Greek NT

According to Kennedy (EGT ad Php. 1:7) φρονέω ";seems always to keep in view the direction which thought (of a practical kind) takes."; Hence its use c. acc. in such passages as P Ryl II. 128.10 (c. A.D. 30) Σουῆρις. . ἀλλότρια φρονήσασα ἐνκαταλιποῦσα τὸ ἐλαιούργιον ἀπηλλάγη, ";Soueris changed her mind, left the mill, and departed"; (Edd.), and P Oxy II. 282.9 (A.D. 30–5) ἡ δὲ ἀλλότρια φρονήσασα τῆς κοινῆς συμβιώ [σεως ] κατὰ πέρ [α ]ς ἐξῆ [λθε, ";but she became dissatisfied with our union, and finally left the house"; (Edd.).

For τὸ ἓν φρονεῖν in Php. 2:2 Deissmann (BS p. 256) cites the sepulchral epitaph IMAe 149 (Rhodes—ii/B.C.) in which it is said of a married couple—ταὐτὰ λέγοντες ταὐτὰ φρονοῦντες ἤλθομεν τὰν ἀμέτρητον ὁδὸν εἰς Ἀΐδαν. Cf. also OGIS 669.36 (i/A.D.) ἐὰν δὲ καὶ δύο ἔπαρχοι τὸ αὐτὸ πεφρονηκότες ὦσι.

The phrase νοῶν καὶ φρονῶν, ";being sane and in my right mind,"; is common in Wills : see s.v. νοέω.
