Vocabulary of the Greek NT

As so often happens, the simple verb (MGr ἀλλάζω ) is outnumbered greatly by its compounds. We may cite Syll 17814, .22 (iv/B.C.) κεκτῆσθαι καὶ ἀλλάσσεσθαι καὶ ἀποδόσθαι , P Oxy IV. 72943 (A.D. 137) ἐὰν δὲ αἱρώμεθα ἀλλάσσειν κτήνη ἢ πωλεῖν ἔξεσται ἡμεῖν , P Lips I. 107.3 (middle iii/A.D.) ἀλλάξας τὸν λόγον , BGU IV. 114141, 44 (Augustus), where a πορφυρᾶ has been ";bartered,"; P Oxy IV. 72943 (A.D. 137) in association with πωλεῖν . In P Tebt I. 12431 (c. B.C. 118) ";ἠλλαγμένοι seems to be equivalent to ἀπηλλαγμένοι rather than to have the meaning ‘exchange’"; (Edd.). An illiterate papyrus of A.D. 75 may be cited for the construction : BGU II. 59710 ἀλλαξέτω σε αὐτὸν (sc. a sack of wheat) Πασίων καλοῖς σπέρμασει . Σέ here is we suppose for σοί : the dative σπέρμασι reminds us of the NT ἐν ὁμοιώματι (Romans 1:23, from LXX), since the addition of ἐν to a dative is nothing out of the way. (Of course we are not questioning the influence of literal translation here.)

The verb is also found in the fragment of the uncanonical Gospel, P Oxy V. 840.17 ff. τοῦτο τὸ ἱερὸν τ [όπον ὄν ]τα καθαρόν , ὃν οὐδεὶς ἄ [λλος εἰ μὴ ] λουσάμενος καὶ ἀλλά [ξας τὰ ἐνδύ ]ματα πατεῖ . For the substantive, see P Eleph 14.9 (late iii/B.C.) τὴν εἰθισμένην ἀλλαγήν : it is fairly common.
