Vocabulary of the Greek NT

BGU III. 909.12 (A.D. 359) πολλὰς ἐ [σ ]χρολογίας εἰς πρόσωπόν μου ἐξειπών. A literary citation is P Oxy III. 410.76 (Doric, iv/B.C.) τὸ δὲ φεύγεν τὰς αἰσχρολογίας μεγ [αλ ]οπρεπὲς καὶ κόσμος λόγω, ";the avoidance of abuse is a mark of high-mindedness and an ornament of speech"; (Edd). The adj. is generally associated with foul or filthy rather than abusive speaking in Colossians 3:8 : cf. Didache 3:3, where after a warning against ἐπιθυμία the Christian is counselled to be μηδὲ αἰσχρολόγος μηδὲ ὑψηλόφθαλμος (";one who casts lewd eyes"; : cf. 2 Peter 2:14) ἐκ γὰρ τούτων ἁπάντων μοιχεῖαι γεννῶνται.
