Vocabulary of the Greek NT

(1) ";a lip,"; as in Mat. 15:8 al., cf. the personal descriptions, P Petr III. 10.22 (B.C. 234) οὐλὴ παρὰ χείλῃ, P Grenf II. 23 aii. 6 (B.C. 107) οὐλὴ χείληι τῶι κάτω, Preisigke 5314.7 (Byz.) διὰ τῶν χιλέων μου, (2) ";edge,"; ";brink,"; of things, as in Heb. 11:12, cf. BGU III. 781ii. 11 (i/A.D.) ἄλλα λουτηρίδια ὠτάρια ἔχον [τ ]α ἐπὶ τοῦ χείλους, Aristeas 79.

Χείλωμα, which LS8 cite from the LXX (? Aq. Exo. 37:2 [MT Exo. 38:2]) in the sense of ";a lip,"; ";rim,"; occurs in P Oxy X. 1294.5, 12 (ii/iii A.D.), where GH understand ";a receptacle"; of some kind, perhaps connected with χηλός.
