Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This verb, which is not approved by the Atticists (frequent in Polybius), occurs five times in the Pauline writings, always with reference to things, except 1 Thessalonians 4:8 ὁ ἀθετῶν οὐκ ἄνθρωπον ἀθετεῖ ἀλλὰ τὸν θεόν. In the LXX it represents no fewer than seventeen Hebrew originals. It appears in the new Median parchment of B.C. 22, P Saïd Khan 2a11. For its use in the papyri, cf. P Tebt I. 7459 (B.C. 114–3) ἐν τῆι ἠθετημένηι ἱερᾷ, BGU IV. 1123.11 (time of Augustus) ἀθετεῖν τῶν ὡμολογημένων, P Oxy IV. 808 (i/A.D.), ἠθέ [τισται ] of loans repaid and cancelled, ib. VIII. 11208 (iii/A.D.) ἐξείσχυσεν τὰ βιβλείδια ἀθετηθῆναι, ";procured the failure of the petition";; and in the inscriptions, OGIS 444.13 ἐὰν δέ τινες τῶν πόλεων ἀθετ [ῶσι ] τὸ σύμφωνον. This is fairly near the meaning suggested from the LXX in Mark 6:26, ";break faith with her,"; by Abbott Joh. Voc. p. 322 : see also Field Notes, p. 30. The adjective is found in P Amh II. 6412 f. (A.D. 107) where certain officials are described as ]θέτους. . . κ [αὶ ] μὴ α ̣̓ναλογο ̣ῦντας τὴν ἐ [π ]ιμέλειαν, ";inefficient and incapable of doing their duties"; (Edd.) : cf. P Lond 23723 (c. A.D. 346) = (II. p. 291) τὸν ἐν ἀθέτ ̣ῳ σιτόκριθον, with reference to corn (wheat and barley) rejected by the inspector as unfit for food.
