Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this verb, which is common in the LXX, but in the NT is confined to Matthew 1:20; Matthew 9:4, see PSI IV. 436.9 (B.C. 248–7) ἐνθυμηθεὶς ἵνα μηθείς [με ] . . . ἀδικῆι, P Tebt I. 27.77 (B.C. 113) καθόλου δ᾽ ἐνθυμηθεὶς ἡλίκην συμβάλλεται ἡ περὶ τὰ ὑποδεικνύμεν [α ] προσοχὴι τοῖς πράγμασι ῥοπήν, ";in general consider how great an impulse attention to the matters indicated contributes to business,"; P Oxy XII. 1477.13 (iii/iv A.D.) εἶ δύναμαι ὃ ἐ ̣νθυμοῦμαι ἆρ ̣α ̣[ι; ";Am I able to carry off what I am thinking of?"; (Edd.). For the gen. constr. see P Lond 42.20 (B.C. 168) (= I. p. 30, Selections, p. 10), σὲ δὲ μηδ᾽ ἐντεθυμῆσθαι τοῦ παραγενέσθαι, ";and that you have never even thought of returning,"; P Par 63.201 (B.C. 164) φαίνεσθε οὖν μηδὲ κατὰ μικρὸν ἐντεθυμῆσθαι τῶν ἐξηριθμημένων ὑμῖν, ";you appear therefore not to have understood in the smallest degree the points enumerated to you"; (Mahaffy). The late compd. παρενθυμέομαι ";disregard,"; ";neglect,"; occurs in a Lycian inscr., JHS xxxiv. p. 5, No. 10.13 ἐὰν δέ τις παρενθυμηθεὶς μὴ θύσῃ, ἔσται αὐτῷ ἐπιβλαβῆ. MGr θυμοῦμαι (c. acc.), ";remember,"; a meaning which gives good sense in Wisdom of Solomon 7:15, if with א A we read ἐνθυμηθῆναι ἀξίως τῶν λεγομένων (cf. Goodrick Oxf. Ch. Bibl. Comm. ad l.).
