Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Like the verb (see above), διόρθωσις is used of ";payments,"; as P Tebt I. 61(a ).33 (B.C. 118–7) διὰ τὸ μὴ εὐσυνθετηικέναι ἐν τῆι διορθώσ [ε ]ι τοῦ ἐπιβληθέντ [ος α ]ὐτῶι στεφάνου, ib. 64(a ).114 (B.C. 116–5). A better parallel to the NT usage (Hebrews 9:10) is P Leid Wxvi. 12 (ii/iii A.D.) ἀλλὰ κατηξιώθης τῶν πρὸς διάρθωσιν (l. διόρ —) βίου μελλώντων.
