Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In NT peculiar to Heb, and there only in the locution εἰς τὸ διηνεκές = in perpetuum. This occurs twice in P Ryl II. 427 (end of ii/A.D.), once without context and once following μισθώσασθαι. Deissmann (BS, p. 251) cites IMAe 786.16 (Imperial) τετειμημένος ἐς τὸ διενεκές. The adj. was in use, as may be seen from BGU II. 646.22 (A.D. 193) εὐχομένους ὑπέρ τε τοῦ διηνεκοῦς αὐτοκρατοῦς, Syll 540.108 (B.C. 175–1) ποιῶν ὀρθὰ πάντα πρὸς κανόνα διηνεκῆ μὴ ἐλάττω τοῦ ἐνεργουμένου λίθου, OGIS 669.65 (i/A.D.) οὗ ] (sc. τοῦ Σεβαστοῦ) [καὶ πε ]ρὶ τῆς πάντων [ἡμ ] [ν ] σωτηρίας ἡι (l. ) δ [ιη ]νεκὴς [εὐ ]εργεσίαι (l. ία) καὶ πρόνοιά [ἐστιν. In P Lips I. 26.5 (beginning of iv/A.D.) we have ἐπὶ τὸ διηνε [κ ]ές. For the adv. διηνεκῶς see OGIS 194.12 (B.C. 42) ἀνενλιπεῖς μὲν διηνεκῶς [παρὰ τοῦτον τὸν χρόν ]ον πάντας πάντων ἐτήρησεν. The η, where α ̄ purum would be expected in Attic, suggests that the word generally came into Attic literature from Ionic poetry—it is found in Homer. See Mayser Gr. p. 13.
