Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ὁρμή in its literal sense of ";onset,"; ";rush,"; is seen in such passages as Syll 318 (= .3700).24 (B.C. 117) ἔστεξεν (";repressed"; ) τὴν ἐπιφερομένην τῶν βαρβάρων ὁρμήν, P Oxy VI. 901.6 (A.D. 336) ἡμέτεροι χῦροι δύο τὴν ὁρμὴν ποιούμενοι ἐπὶ ἡμέτερον ἔδαφος, ";our two pigs making a rush into our piece of land"; : cf. Acts 14:5 and see Field Notes, p. 122. The metaph. sense, ";impulse to act,"; as probably in James 3:4, may be illustrated by the petition P Grenf II. 78.15 (A.D. 307) ἀναγκαίως περὶ πο [λλοῦ ] τὴν ὁρμὴν ποιούμενος πρὸς τὸν σὸν μεγαλεῖ [ον, ἡγε ]μὼν δέσποτα, τάδε μαρτύρομαι : cf. M. Anton, iv. 40 πῶς ὁρμῇ μιᾷ πάντα πράσσει, with relation to the world; and see s.v. ὁρμάω. Thackeray (Gr. i. p. 38) cites ὁρμή = הֵמָה, ";fury,"; in Ezekiel 3:14, Dan Θ 8:6, as an instance of the tendency on the part of the translators to use Greek words of similar sound to the Hebrew.
