Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Petr II. 13 (19).12 (B.C. 258–3) τοῦτο ε δ ἔχε (l. τοῦτο δὲ ἔχε) τῆι δια [νοία ]ι ὅτι οὐθέν σοι μὴ γενηθῆι λυπηρόν ";keep this in mind, that you will never be allowed to have anything to distress you."; Syll 300.43 (B.C. 170) γράμματα ἀποστεῖλαι ἔδοξεν, ὅπως περὶ τούτου τῆι δι [αν ]οίαι προσέχηι : Viereck (SG p. 15) re-translates this litteras dari censuerunt ut de ea re animadverteret. Διάνοια is accordingly a fair equivalent to the Latin animus. The word is found on the Rosetta Stone, OGIS 90.35 (B.C. 196) βωμοὺς ἱδρύσατο τά τε προσδεόμενα ἐπισκευῆς προσδιωρθώσατο ἔχων θεοῦ εὐεργετικοῦ ἐν τοῖς ἀνήκου [σιν εἰς τὸ ] θεῖον διάνοιαν. Another interesting inscription shows a curious contact with the LXX. Syll 891 (ii/A.D.) mostly consists of curses on any one who may disturb the grave on which they are inscribed. Opening hopefully with ἐπικατάρατος ἔστω, they go on with a quotation of Deuteronomy 28:22 πατάξαι to ἀνεμοφθορίᾳ, followed by ver. 28 παραπληξίᾳ to διανοίας. The inscr. proves to have been ordered for a pagan, but composed by a proselyte to Judaism. The noun figures in other imprecatory literature. So Wünsch AF 1.10 (i/ii A.D.) ἀναθεματίζομεν σῶμα, πνεῦμα, ψ [υ ]χήν, [δι ]άνοιαν, φρόνησιν, αἴσθησιν, ζοήν, [καρδ ]ίαν λόγοις Ἑκατικίοις ὁρκίσμ [ασί ] τε ἀβραικοῖς (i.e. ";Hebrew";), ib. 4.23 (iii/A.D.) ὁρκίζω σε τὸν θεὸν τὸν [τ ]ὴν δι [ ]νοιαν παντὶ ἀνθρώπῳ χαρισάμενον, ib..35 βασάνισον αὐτῶν τὴν διάνοιαν τὰς φρένας τὴν αἴσθησιν ἵνα μὴ νοῶσιν τί π [ο ]ιῶσιν.

For the neutral sense of διάνοια (as Colossians 1:21) we may cite Epict. iii. 22. 20 νῦν ἐμοὶ ὕλη ἐστὶν ἡ ἐμὴ διάνοια, ὡς τῷ τέκτονι τὰ ξύλα, ὡς τῷ σκυτεῖ τὰ δέρματα. The subst. is very common in Aristeas, and the verb occurs ter, e.g. 56 σεμνῶς ἅπαντα διανοούμενος.
