Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Nägeli, p. 24, gives this among Ionic words in the Κοινή, on the strength of its meaning bezeugen, versichern, in Attic, but ermahnen in the Hellenistic of Paul. But ";solemn and emphatic utterance"; seems to be the note of NT use throughout; and this is not far from the sufficiently Attic Demosthenes, as Callicles 4 (p. 1273) οὐδ᾽ ἀπηγόρευσεν οὐδὲ διεμαρτύρατο, ";he neither forbad it nor formally protested"; (Sandys & Paley—see their note). The verb occurs in P Petr II. 2 (1).12 (B.C. 260–59) ἡμῶν διαμαρτυρομένων αὐτόν, ib. 37 right col..6 (iii/B.C.) with fragmentary context : note that in the former it seems to have acc. pers. See Milligan’s note, Thess. p. 51. From a much later period we may quote BGU III. 836.7 (time of Justinian) διεμαρτύραντο δὲ ἡμᾶς ἐγγράφως δ [ιὰ τοῦ λογ ]ιωτάτου ἐκδίκου κτλ. For the subst. διαμαρτυρία, see P Lond 483.72 (A.D. 616) (= II. p. 328), BGU II. 669 verso.1 (Byz.).
