Thayer's Expanded Definition

βαθέως, adverb, deeply: ὄρθρου βαθέως namely, ὄντος (cf. Bernhardy (1829), p. 338), deep in the morning, at early dawn, Luke 24:1 L T Tr WH; so Meyer at the passage But βαθέως here is more correctly taken as the Attic form of the genitive from βαθύς, which see; cf. Buttmann, 26 (23); (Lob. Phryn., p. 247).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For β . associated with time (class.), as in Luke 24:1, cf. P Lips I. 40ii. 10 (iv/v A.D.) ὀψὲ πάνυ βαθ [ε ]ίας ἑσπέρ [ας . So in the fragment of an epithalamium (iv/A.D.), P Ryl I. 17.6—

ὁμοφροσύνην δ᾽ ὀπα ̣σ ̣ε ̣[ιε

ἤδη που θεὸς ἄμμι καὶ αὐτίκα τέκνα γενέ [σ ]θ ̣α ̣ι ̣

καὶ πα [ ]δων παῖδας καὶ ἐς βαθὺ γῆρας ἱκέσ ̣θ [αι .

It is applied to colour in P Lond 899.4 (ii/A.D.) (= III. p. 208) τὸ οὖν βαθύτερον (sc. πορφύριον ) πεποίηται εἰς τὸ σπανου (?) καὶ τὸ ὀξύτερον εἰς τ [ ] ἄλλ [ο ]. The comparative βαθύτερον is also found P Petr III. 43 (2) rectoiv, .13 (B.C. 245) (p. 121). Note a new compound, recalling the combination in Luke 6:48, P Hal I. 1ii. 83 (iii/B.C.), where a πολιτικὸς νόμος is headed φυτ [εύσ ]εως καὶ οἰκοδομ [ίας ] καὶ β [αθ ]υορυ [γῆς .
