Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the NT meaning ";take leave of,"; ";bid farewell to,"; as 2 Corinthians 2:13, cf. BGU III. 884ii. 12 (ii/iii A.D. πρὶν οὖν ἀπέλθῃς πρὸς Χαιρήμονα, ἀνά (βαινε) πρός με, ἵνα σοι ἀποτάξομαι, ";may say goodbye to you,"; P Oxy VII. 1070.55 (iii/A.D.) Εὐδ [αίμων ] αὐτῷ ἀπετάξατο [λ ]έγων ὅτι ἐν τῷ παρόντι οὐ σχολάζομεν ὲτέροις ἐξερχόμενοι, ";Eudaemon parted with him, saying, ‘At present we are not at leisure and are visiting others’"; (Ed.). The meaning is stronger in P Oxy II. 298.31 (i/A.D.) ἐπεὶ ἀποτάξασθαι αὐτῷ θελω, where the context shows that the idea is ";get rid of.";

The active ἀποτάσσω, which is not found in the NT, is ";to appoint,"; as in P Oxy III. 475.27 (A.D. 182) ἀποτάξαι ἕνα τῶν περὶ σὲ ὑπηρετῶν εἰς τὴν Σενέπτα, and in passive P Fay 12.27 (c. B.C. 103) τοὺς ἀ ̣ποτεταγμένους τῆι κατοικίᾳ χρηματιστάς, ";the assize-judges appointed for the settlement,"; or ";command,"; BGU IV. 1061.9 (B.C. 14) τὴν ἀποτεταγμένην πρὸς τῆι τηρήσει θυρωρόν, P Fay 20.20 (iii/iv A.D.) εἰ ἀποτέτακται τὸν Αὐτοκράτορα ὁρᾶν πᾶσιν αὐτοῖς. . . τὰ τῆς βασιλείας διοικοῦντα, ";if they have all been commanded to watch the Emperor administering the affairs of his kingdom.";
