Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἀροτριάω occurs in P Petr III. 31.7 τοῦ ζεύγους τῶν Βοω ̣ν ̣ μου π ̣ο ̣ρευομένου ἐπὶ τῆς βασιλικῆς ὁδοῦ ὥστε ἀρο ̣τριᾶν. It is sometimes replaced by ὑποσχίζω, see the editors’ note on P Lond 1170 verso.305 (A.D. 258–9) (= III. p. 200). The verb is found in the derived sense of ";devise,"; like Heb. רָחַשׁ, in Sirach 7:12.
