Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The collective sense of this word—involved in its historic relation to γένος —is normal throughout, and survives in MGr γενιά = ";race, lineage."; Thus it denotes a family, without individual reference : P Oxy I. 104.11 (a will—A.D. 96) τῆς τούτου γενεᾶς , ";his issue"; (should he himself predecease)—similarly PSI III. 240.6 (ii/A.D.) . . . ἑκά ]σ ̣του αὐτῶν γενεᾶς , in a will—ib. IV. 713.16 (A.D. 97) τῇ ἐξ ἀλλήλων γενεᾷ , ";their joint issue,"; P Hal I. 1.217 (iii/B.C.) ἄλλον δ᾽ ὅρκον μηδένα ἐξέστω ὀμνύναι μη [δ ]ὲ ὁρκ [ίζ ]ειν μηδὲ γενεὰν παρίστασθαι , ";no one may swear by any other oath [than Zeus, Hera and Poseidon], nor offer it, nor may he bring forward his family,"; i.e. to swear by them : see note, p. 121. Syll 856.16, .18 (ii/B.C.) ὁμοίως δὲ καὶ εἰ γε [ν ]εὰν ποιήσαιτο , of a manumitted slave, ἐλευθέρα ἔστ [ω ] καὶ ἀνέφαπτος ἁ γ [ε ]νεά . Cagnat IV. 915C .4 (i/A.D.) καὶ [αὐ ]το [ ] καὶ γενεαὶ [α ]ὐτῶ [ν . The abstract sense appears in P Tebt II. 312.6 (A.D. 123–4) ἱερεὺς ἀπολύσιμος ἀπὸ τ ̣[ῆς ] [.] δ ̄ γενεᾶς , ";exempted priest of the [.]4th generation.";
