δίς, adverb (Curtius, § 277; from Homer down), twice: Mark 14:30, 72; δίς τοῦ σαββάτου twice in the week, Luke 18:12; καί ἅπαξ καί δίς (see ἅπαξ, c.), Philippians 4:16; 1 Thessalonians 2:18. In the phrase δίς ἀποθανόντα, Jude 1:12, δίς is not equivalent to completely, absolutely; but the figure is so adjusted to the fact, that men are represented as twice dead in a moral sense, first as not having yet been regenerated, and secondly as having fallen from a state of grace; see ἀποθνῄσκω, I. 4; (but compare the various interpretations as given in (Meyer) Huther or in Schaff's Lange (Fronm.) at the passage In the Babylonian Talmud (Ber. 10 a.) we read, 'Thou art dead here below, and thou shalt have no part in the life to come'].
STRONGS NT 1364a: δισμυριάς δισμυριάς, δισμυριαδος, ἡ, twice ten thousand, two myriads: Revelation 9:16 L T (WH δίς μυριάδες), for R G δύο μυριάδες.

BGU III. 913.2 (A.D. 206) δὶς μηνός : the document is of special interest as having been written in Myra in Lycia, and hence being one of the very few known papyri from Asia Minor, see Archiv ii. p. 138. For the phrase εἰς δίς, cf. P Flor II. 181.9 (iii/A.D.) ἔπεμψα οὖν εἰς δὶς πρός σε τὸν ὀνηλάτην. With δὶς ἀποθανόντα in Judges 1:12 we may compare P Oxy I. 33iv. 4 where a man condemned to death salutes the Emperor (? Marcus Aurelius), τίς ἤδη τὸν δεύτερόν μου ᾅδην προσκυνοῦντα. . . μετεκαλέσατο; ";who has recalled me when I was now saluting my second death?"; (Edd.).
