Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With this verb, which is found six times in the NT practically = the simplex, we may compare P Tor I. 1v. 4 (B.C. 116) (= Chrest II. p. 35) καθ᾽α παρέκειτο ἀντίγραφα συγγραφῶν Αἰγυπτίων διηρμηνευμένων δ᾽῾Ελληνιστί. See Aristeas 15 ἣν (sc. νομοθεσίαν) ἡμεῖς οὐ μόνον μεταγράψαι ἐπινοοῦμεν ἀλλὰ καὶ διερμηνεῦσαι : also 308, 310. A phrase almost identical with that cited from P Tor may be seen in P Tebt I. 164i. 2— see s.v. μεθερμηνεύω.
