Vocabulary of the Greek NT

λογίζομαι is common in the sense of ";reckon,"; ";put down to one’s account"; as in Romans 4:6 al., e.g. P Eleph 5.18 (B.C. 284–3) ἐλογισάμην πρὸς Ἑρμαγόραν ὑπὲρ τοῦ οἴνου. . ., P Par 62iv. 1 (c. B.C. 170) ἃ οὐ λογισθήσεται τοῖς τελώναις, P Oxy XII. 1434.8 (A.D. 107–8) τὰ ἀργυρικὰ καὶ σειτικὰ καθ (ήκοντα) [ἐν ]θάδε λογίζεται, ";the due amounts in money and corn are reckoned here,"; ib. III. 533.9 (ii/iii A.D.) αἱ πρόσοδοί μου. . . παρὰ τῷ ταμείῳ ἐ [ν π ]αραθέσει λογισθήτωσαν, ";let my revenues be placed on deposit at the storehouse"; (Edd.), P Flor II. 123.7 (A.D. 254) λογιζομένου αὐτῷ τοῦ μονοχώρου δραχμῶν δεκά -εξ, ";reckoning the wine to him at sixteen drachmae the monochore,"; P Oxy VII. 1056.5 (A.D. 360) τῆς ἀρταβῆς μίας λογισζομένης ἐκ δηναρίων μυριάδων ἑκατὸν ὀγδοήκοντα, ";a single artaba being reckoned at one hundred and eighty myriads of denarii."; ib. X. 1329 (A.D. 399) ἐπὶ τῷ με ταῦτά σοι λογίσασθαι, and OGIS 595.15 (ii/A.D.) τὰ γὰρ ἕτερα ἀναλώματα. . . ἑαυτοῖς ἐλογισάμεθα, ἵνα μὴ τὴν πόλιν βαρῶμεν. The verb is construed with εἰς, as in Acts 19:27, Romans 4:3, in P Fay .9 (A.D. 134) νυνεὶ δὲ συνλήβδ ̣[ην π ]ε ̣ρ ̣[ὶ πάν ]των ὁπωσο ̣υ ̣ͅν διδομένων [[. . . ]] ἢ λογιζομένων εἰς τὸ δημόσιον, ";I now give orders generally with regard to all payments actually made or credited to the government."; From this meaning of the verb comes the λογιστήριον, ";finance-office"; (see s.v. κατακλείω). The verb has the more general sense of ";number,"; ";class amongst,"; as in Luke 22:37 in a return of camels P Lond 328.8 (A.D. 163) (= II. p. 75) πώλου ἑνὸς λ ̣ο ̣γι ̣ζομένου νυνεὶ ἐν τελείοι ̣̓, ";one foal being now numbered among the full-grown (camels)."; Cf. also BGU IV. 1028.17 (ii/A.D.) αἱ δὲ λοιπ (αὶ) πρὸς ἡμίσιαν λογίζ (ονται), P Thead 8.18 (A.D. 306) διὰ τὸ τὰ προκίμενα ἐρύφιά τε καὶ αὐτὰ τέλεια λογείζ [εσθ ]αι ἐπὶ τῷ μεμισθωμένῳ, ";puisque les chevreaux de l’année précédente pourront être comptés comme adultes"; (Ed.), and the late P Giss I. 56.4 (vi/A.D.) ἐπ ̣ὶ δεκαετῆ χρ (όνον) λογιζόμε (νον) ἀπὸ καρπῶν τῶν νῦν ὄντων ἐν ἀγροῖς. Such a passage as OGIS 665.28 (A.D. 49) ἐὰν δέ τις δῶι ἢ ὡς δεδομένον λογίσηται κτλ. prepares us for the meaning ";think,"; ";consider,"; in ib. 763.67 (ii/B.C.) οἰκειοτάτην ἐλογιζόμην τὴν ἀνάθεσιν (τοῦ ἀνδριάντος) ἔσεσθαι ἐν ταύτηι (τῇ Μιλησίων πόλει) : cf. P Par 63.95 (B.C. 164) (= P Petr III. p. 26) τίς γὰρ οὕτως ἐστιν ἀνάλητος ἢ ἀ ̣λ ̣ι ̣τρὸς ἐν τῶι λογίζεσθαι; ";for who is so utterly wanting in reason and the capacity for making distinctions?"; (Mahaffy).

On the Pauline metaphorical use of λογίζομαι see Ramsay Luke, p. 286 f., and Griffith Thomas, Exp T xvii. p. 211 ff. For the form λογισθείη in 2 Timothy 4:16 see Moulton Gr. ii. p. 217. MGr λογιάζω, ";consider,"; ";think upon,"; λο (γ)αριάζω, ";reckon,"; ";value.";
