Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This subst., which is unknown to Attic Greek (cf. Lob. Phryn. p. 311), is found in its ethical meaning, as in Acts 26:7 (cf. 2 Maccabees 14:38 al.), in P Par 63i. 12 (B.C. 164) (= P Petr III. p. 18) καλῶς ποιήσεις τὴν πᾶσαν προσενεγκάμενος ἐκτένε ̣ι ̣αν καὶ π [ρο ]νοηθείς, ";you will do well in using every effort and taking every precaution"; (Mahaffy) : cf. from the inscrr. Priene 108.382 (after B.C. 129) ἡ τοῦ δήμου πρὸς τοὺς εὐεργετοῦντας [αὐτὸν ἐ ]κτένεια δι᾽ αἰῶνος ἐπίσημον ἔχῃ τὴν χα ̣[ριν, IMAe 1032.10 (ii/B.C.) τὰν πᾶσαν ἐκτένειαν καὶ κακοπαθίαν παρεχόμενος, Syll 732.28 (i/B.C.) ἡ σύνοδος ἀποδεξαμένη τὴν ἐκτένειαν καὶ φιλοτιμίαν αὐτοῦ, and Cagnat IV. 984.6 μετὰ πάσης ἐκτενείας καὶ λαμπρότητος.
