Vocabulary of the Greek NT

According to Mayser, Gr. p. 465, the form αὐξάνω , which is found in the LXX (Genesis 35:11, Sirach 43:8) and NT, occurs in the Ptolemaic papyri only in P Leid Bi. 8 (ii/B.C.) μᾶλλον αὐξάνεσθαι ἀκολούθως τῇ τῶν προγόνων [προαιρέσει ] : elsewhere, as in the Attic inscriptions up to Imperial times (Meisterhans Gr. p. 176), we find only αὔξω . The latter, contrary to general NT usage (as Ephesians 2:21, Colossians 2:19) is transitive in such passages as Michel 551.7 (the Canopus decree, B.C. 238) τὰς τι [μὰς τῶν θεῶν ] ἐπὶ πλεῖον αὔξοντες , Cagnat IV. 247.35 (Stratonicea, c. B.C. 150) ἐπὶ πλεῖον αὔξειν τ [ὴν ] φιλίαν , and Magn 33.7 αὔξοντες τὴν πρὸς τοὺς θεοὺς εὐσέβειαν , ib. 50.28 ἐπὶ πλεῖον αὔξων , after a hiatus. So, at a later time, the fuller form : P Ryl II. 77.36 (A.D. 192) τῆς πόλ (εως ) αὐξάνε ̣[ι ] τὰ πράγματα . The same is implied in the use of the mid. in Syll 891.18 μηδὲ οἶκος αὔξοιτο —a pagan curse which quotes the LXX. For the intrans. usage cf. Aristeas 208 θεωρῶν , ὡς ἐν πολλῷ χρόνῳ καὶ κακοπαθείαις μεγίσταις αὔχει τε καὶ γεννᾶται τὸ τῶν ἀνθρώπων γένος . Of the moon, P Leid Wii. 21. In MGr αὐξαίνω .
