Vocabulary of the Greek NT

βούλημα is used with reference to the contents of a will in P Lond 171b.20 (iii/A.D.) (= II. p. 176) τὸ ἐνγεγραμμένον βούλημα : cf. in a similar connexion BGU I. 361ii. 23 (A.D. 184) ἵνα τὸ βούλημα αὐτοῦ φανερὸν γε ̣[ν ]ηται ̣. P Tebt II. 407.9 (? A.D. 199) τὸ δ ̣[ ] βούλημα τοῦτο ἐὰν μὴ φυλάξῃς —the property is to go to the Serapeum at Alexandria if the daughter of the writer does not observe his wish that certain slaves should be set free. Syll 366.12 (c. A.D. 38) ἐκείνου τῆς ἐπιθυμίας βουλήμασιν is a collocation rather like τὴν εὐδοκίαν τοῦ θελήματος αὐτοῦ , Ephesians 1:5.

For βούλησις see P Tebt I. 43.35 (B.C. 118) ὃς ἀκόλουθος ὢν τῆ [ι ὑ ]μετέρᾳ βουλήσει προνοεῖται κτλ ., ";who in accordance with your wishes takes care etc.,"; OGIS 383.176 (Antiochus of Commagene—mid.i/B.C.) οὓς ἐγὼ θεοῖς τε καὶ τιμαῖς ἐμαῖς κατὰ δαιμόνιον βούλησιν ἀνέθηκα , Syll 893.2 (ii/A.D.) as cited under βιάζομαι and the late P Amh II. 144.11 (v/A.D.) θεοῦ βουλήσει , ";God willing.";
