Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἐάν

The difference between ἐάν and εἰ is considerably lessened in Hellenistic Greek, with the result that the former is found fairly frequently with the ind. (as in Luke 19:40, Acts 8:31, 1 Thessalonians 3:8, 1 John 5:15), e.g. P Par 62viii. 8 (c. B.C. 170) ἐὰν δ᾽ ὑπερβόλιόν ἐνέστη, ib. 18.10 (Imperial period?) ἐὰν μάχουσιν (or -οῦσιν) μετ᾽ ἐσοῦ οἱ ἀδελφοί σου, P Tebt I. 58.55 (B.C. 111) ἐὰν δεῖ σε συνπεσῖν τῶι Ἀνικήτωι σύνπεσαι, ";if you must meet Anicetus, meet him,"; P Amh II. 93.24 (A.D. 181) ἐὰν φαίνεται μισθῶσαι, and P Oxy VIII. 1157.15 (late iii/A.D.) ἐὰν δὲ ἦσαν. See further Deissmann BS p. 201 f. and Proleg. p. 168, where attention is also drawn to the ambiguous ἐὰν ἦν, which is normally to be read , cf. Moulton CR xv. pp. 38, 436. The following exx. of conditional ἐάν may be cited from P Ryl II.—153.21 (A.D. 138–61) ὡς ἐὰν αὐτοὶ δο [κῶσι χορηγοῦντα ]ς, 154.28 (A.D. 66) οἷα ἐὰν. . ἐγβῆι, 155.21 (A.D. 138–61) ω ̣[στε ἐὰν αἱρῆται, 163.18 (A.D. 139) ὁπηνίκα ἐὰν αἱρῇ. See also s.v. ἄν.

ἐάνπερ

For this intensive particle which in Bibl. Greek is confined to Hebrews 3:14 (contrast v. 6), 6.3, cf. BGU IV. 1141.80 (B.C. 14) διασαφήσουσιν οὓς ἀπέσταλκες, ἐάνπερ μὴ θ ̣ελήσωσιν προσχαρίσασθαι συνδούλωι, P Fay 124.9 (ii/A.D.) ἐάνπερ μὴ εὐ [γ ]νομωνῇς (l. εὐγνωμονῇς) τὰ πρὸς τὴν μητέρα, ";if so be you are unfair in your conduct towards your mother.";
