Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With 1 Corinthians 7:35 πρὸς τὸ εὔσχημον, ";for that which is seemly,"; ";to promote decorum,"; cf. the office of the εὐσχήμων or guardian of public morals in Egypt, e.g. BGU III. 926.5 (A.D. 188) ἵνα παραγενομένων τ [ῶν ] κρατίστων εὐσχημόν [ων ] μη [δε ]μία μέμψις γένη [ται, ib. I. 147.1 (ii/iii A.D.) ἀρχεφόδοις καὶ εὐσχήμοσι κώμης, P Ryl II. 236.15 (A.D. 256) εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν τοῦ εὐσχήμονος, ";to the house of the magistrate,"; and Ostr 1153 (Rom.) πέμψατε τοὺς εὐ [σ ]χήμονας τοὺς ἐπὶ τ ̣ῶν παρολκημ (άτων). The adj. is used in the weaker sense of ";fitting,"; ";suitable,"; in Michel 1510.5 (B.C. 167–146) with reference to erecting a statue—ὅπου ἂν δόξηι εὔσχημον εἶναι. For the meaning ";of honourable position"; (in society), as in Mark 15:43, which is condemned by Phrynichus (ed. Lobeck, p. 333), and described by Rutherford (NP p. 417) as apparently ";confined to Christian writers,"; we can now add to the exx. cited by Wetstein from Plutarch and Josephus such passages as P Hamb I. 37.7 (ii/A.D.) σὺ γὰρ ἀληθινὸς φιλόσοφος καὶ εὐσχήμων γεγένη ̣[σαι, and P Flor I. 16.20 (A.D. 239) ἐντεῦθεν δὲ παρέλαβον παρὰ τῆς εὐσχήμονος, ";from the noble lady";—an intere sting parallel to Acts 13:50; Acts 17:12; Acts 17:34 D (see Ramsay CRE, p. 161). In a trial before the prefect, P Flor I. 61.61 (A.D. 85), the sentence is pronounced—ἄξιος μ [ ]ν ἦς μαστιγωθῆναι, διὰ σεαυτοῦ [κ ]ατασχὼν ἄνθρωπον εὐσχήμονα καὶ γυν [αῖ ]καν. See also Syll 717.13 (ii/B.C.) τὴν παρεπιδημίαν ἐποιήσατο εὐσχήμονα καὶ ἀξίαν τειμῆς, Kaibel 352.2 (a physician’s epitaph) σπουδαῖον, εὐ [προσήγορον ] καὶ εὐσχή [μονα, and the passages in Vettius Valens, where the word is defined in the Index as = ";illustris.";
