Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";rejoice"; : P Eleph 13.3 (B.C. 223–222) ἐκομισάμην τὴν παρὰ σοῦ ἐπιστολήν, ἣν ἀναγνοὺς ἐχάρην (cf. Proleg, p. 161) ἐπὶ τῶι με αἰσθέσθαι τὰ κατὰ σέ, P Berol 11662.3 (time of Claudius) (= Olsson, p. 100) πρὸ μὲν πάντων ἐχάρην μεγάλως λαβών σου [ ]πιστολήν, ὅτι ὑγειαίνεις, similarly P Giss I. 21.3 (time of Trajan). BGU II. 531i. 4 (ii/A.D.), and P Oxy I. 41.17 (iii/iv A.D.) ἐπὶ τούτῳ σφόδρα χαίρω.

It should be noted that in Php. 3:1; Php. 4:4, RV marg. renders χαίρετε by ";farewell."; Lightfoot (Comm. ad ll.) combines the two meanings ";farewell"; and ";rejoice,"; but the latter is generally preferred by the commentators.
