Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This old noun retains from Homer down to MGr—where it has only changed its declension (ἡ γυναῖκα )—the two meanings of ";woman"; and ";wife"; : it is superfluous to illustrate the one or the other, as we should get no light on the only questions that arise in NT, such as which word to use in rendering Matthew 5:28. The meeting of two words characteristic of that passage does, however, make it worth while to quote Wünsch AF 5.45 (iii/A.D.), where Domitiana prays that her lover may be wholly devoted to her, μηδεμίαν ἄλλην γυναῖκα μήτε παρθένον ἐπιθυμοῦντα . That γυναῖκα = ";married woman"; in Mt l.c. is anyhow probable. The phrase of Mark 12:19 f. etc., may be paralleled in the oldest extant Greek papyrus, P Eleph 1.8 (B.C. 311) (= Selections, p. 2) λαμβάνει Ἡρακλείδης Δημητρίαν Κώιαν γυναῖκα γνησίαν παρὰ τοῦ πατρός κτλ .

The irregularity of the word’s flexion naturally produced some levelling. In general, as MGr shows, the single nom. sing. yielded to the oblique cases; but sometimes we find the reverse. Thus in Cagnat IV. 833 (Hierapolis, ii/A.D. or later) Αὐρ . Ἀζείου (οὐ )αιτρανοῦ καὶ τῆς γυνῆς αὐτοῦ Σεραπίας .
