Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Two instances of this rare noun may be cited, one from P Catt versoiv. 25 (ii/A.D.) (= Chrest. II. p. 99) μέχρι τοῖ τῆς λογοθεσίας ἀπαρτισμοῦ ";till the completion of the audit,"; and the other from P Giss I. 67.8 ff. (time of Trajan or Hadrian) η ̣͗δη κα [τ ]ὰ τὰς ἐντολάς σου Ἡράκλειος ὁ ἐπίτρ [ο ]πο [ς χωρὶς τῶν ] ξενικῶν ξύλων τὸν ἀ ̣παρτισ [μ ] [ν ] τῶν ἐπὶ [τό ]πω ̣ν [ἔργων πρ ]ο ̣̣ ὀφθαλμῶν ἔχει. But the verbal phrase εἰς τὸ ἀπαρτίζειν is so completely equivalent to εἰς ἀπαρτισμόν (Luke 14:28) that the verb may be illustrated. P Oxy I. 117.4, .7 (ii/iii A.D.) has the aor. pass. twice, the ";completing"; of a horoscope (?) and of a sale of slaves : cf. ib. VI. 908.23 (A.D. 199) ὥστε ὑφ᾽ ἑκάστου ὑμῶν ἀρτοκοπεῖον ἓν ἀπαρτισθῆναι, ";that one bakery be fitted out by each of you"; (Edd.), ib. 936.22 (iii/A.D.) οὐκ ἔχω ἄρτι σεῖτον οὐδὲ τὰ βιβλίδια ἀπήρ [τ ]ι ̣σ ̣ται ἒως ἄρτι, ";I have no food now, and the petitions have not yet been got ready"; (Edd.). P Oxy IV. 724.11 (A.D. 155) ἐὰν δὲ ἐντὸς τοῦ χ [ρ ]όνου αὐτὸν ἀπαρτίσῃς οὐκ ἐκδέχομαι τὴν προκειμένην προθεσμ [ ]αν ";if you make him perfect [in shorthand] within the period, I will not wait for the aforesaid limit"; (Edd.) is a close parallel to the NT use of καταρτίζω (Galatians 6:1, 1 Thessalonians 3:10 al.). P Lips I. 105.11 (i/ii A.D.) μ ̣όγις τὸν τῆς βεβρεγμένης ἀπήρτισα, ";I have with difficulty completed the account of the irrigated land."; BGU II. 448.23 ff. (ii/A.D.) πρὸς τὸ τὴν π ̣[ρ ]οα [ίρ ]εσ ̣[ι ]ν τῶν [διαθεμέ ]νων φανερὰν [κ ]α ̣ταστῆ [ναι καὶ ἕκασ ]τα ἀπαρτισθῆναι τοῖς ἐν [γ ]εγρα [μμ ]έν [ο ]ις ἀκολούθως. In P Catt versoiii. 13 (as cited above) we find the expression μετὰ τὴν χειροτονίαν ἐντὸς ε ̄ ἡμερῶν ἀπαρτιοῦσιν τὰς δίκας. P Ryl II. 74.4 (A.D. 133–5) shows the verb in a proclamation of M. Petronius Mamertinus, prefect of Egypt, where [τὸν διαλο ]γ ̣ισμὸν ἀπαρτίσαι is rendered by the editors ";to complete the conventus."; We could cite many more exx. : the relative frequency of the ἀπό and the κατά compounds of this verb in NT and papyri is quite reversed.
