Thayer's Expanded Definition

διαταγή, διαταγης, (διατάσσω), a purely Biblical (2 Esdr. 4:11) and ecclesiastical word (for which the Greeks use διάταξις), a disposition, arrangement, ordinance: Romans 13:2; ἐλάβετε τόν νόμον εἰς διαταγάς ἀγγέλων, Acts 7:53, ye received the law, influenced by the authority of the ordaining angels, or because ye thought it your duty to receive what was enjoined by angels (at the ministration of angels (nearly equivalent to as being the ordinances etc.), similar to εἰς ὄνομα δέχεσθαι, Matthew 10:41; see εἰς, B. II 2 d.; (Winers Grammar, 398 (372), cf. 228 (214), also Buttmann, 151 (131))). On the Jewish opinion that angels were employed as God's assistants in the solemn proclamation of the Mosaic law, cf. Deuteronomy 33:2 the Sept.; Acts 7:38; Galatians 3:19; Hebrews 2:2; Josephus, Antiquities 15, 5, 3; (Philo de somn. i. § 22; Lightfoot's Commentary on Galatians, the passage cited).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Deissmann (LAE, p. 86 ff.) has shown how completely the new evidence sets aside the statement by Grimm (but cf. Thayer, p. 694) that this is ";purely"; a biblical and ecclesiastical word used for the Greek διάταξις. Thus P Oxy I. 92.3 (an order for a payment of wine—? A.D. 335) Ἀμεσύστῳ ἱπποιάτρῳ ἐκ διαταγ (ῆς) οἴνου κεράμιον ἓν ν ̣ε ̣ο ̣ν ̣, ib. 93.2 (A.D. 362), and P Fay 133.4 (iv/A.D.) ἀπέστειλα τὸν οἰκ [ον ]όμον. . . ἵνα τὴν διαταγὴν τῆς τρύγης ποιήσηται, ";I have sent to you the steward to make arrangements about the vintage"; (Edd.). From inscrr. we may quote Cagnat IV. 661.17 (A.D. 85), where the διαταγή of T. Praxias of Acmonia appears in his will; ib. 734.12, providing that no one shall be buried in the tomb παρὰ γνώμην τοῦ Ῥούφου ἢ διαταγήν, and similarly ib. 840.3 εἴ τις παρὰ τὴν διαταγὴν τὴν ἐμὴν ποιήσι, which the editor glosses as ";excerptum testamenti, relati in tabularium civitatis."; For this specialized meaning of ";testamentary disposition,"; Deissmann, LAE, p. 87, cites this last inscr. (from Hierapolis), and refers to the Pauline use of ἐπιδιατάσσεσθαι in Galatians 3:15.

For the difficult εἰς διαταγὰς ἀγγέλων in Acts 7:53 Nestle (Exp T xx. p. 93) cites the Heb. בְּיַד or בִּידֵי, ";through the hand"; or ";hands"; (i.e. the mediation) of angels, and compares the LXX διὰ χειρὸς Δαυείδ = Heb. עַל־יְדֵי דָויד in 2 Chronicles 23:18 (Vg. ";juxta dispositionem David";)—a view confirmed, he adds, by the Syriac version which has בְּיַד with the addition of פוקדנא, ";the command.";
