Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The force of ἀθέτησις in Hebrews 7:18; Hebrews 9:26 is well brought out by Deissmann’s reference (BS p. 228 f.) to the technical legal formula in the papyri εἰς ἀθέτησιν καὶ ἀκύρωσιν, as in BGU I. 44.16 (A.D. 102) τὴν δ [ια ]γραφὴν εἰς ἀθέτησιν καὶ ἀκύρωσιν, ";the decree to be annulled and cancelled."; So P Amh II. 111.19 f. (A.D. 132), P. Tebt II. 397.12 (A.D. 198), P Saïd Khan 2b14 (B.C. 22), etc.
