Abbott-Smith Manual Greek Lexicon of the New Testament

ἐγώ ,

gen., etc., ἐμοῦ , ἐμοί , ἐμέ (enclitic μου , μοι , με ), pl., ἡμεῖς , -ῶν , -ῖν , -ᾶς , pers. pron.

I. (a) The nom, is usually emphatic, when expressed as subjc., as in Matthew 3:11, Mark 1:8, Luke 3:16, al. But often there is no apparent emphasis, as Matthew 10:16, John 10:17; ἰδοὺ ἐ . (= Heb. H2005, cf. 1 Samuel 3:8), Acts 9:10; . (like Heb. H589), I am, John 1:23 (LXX), Acts 7:32 (LXX).

(b) The enclitic forms (v. supr.) are used with nouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, where there is no emphasis: ἐν τ . πατρί μου , John 14:20; μου τ . λόγους , Matthew 7:24; ὀπίσω μου , Matthew 3:11; ἰσχυρίτερός μου , ib.; λέγει μοι , Revelation 5:5; also with the prep. πρός , as Mark 9:19, al. The full forms (ἐμοῦ , etc.) are used with the other prepositions, as δι᾿ ἐμοῦ , ἐν ἐμοί , εἰς ἐμέ , etc., also for emphasis, as Luke 10:16, John 7:23, Mark 14:7, al.

(c) The gen. μοῦ and ἡμῶν are often used for the poss. pronouns ἐμός , ἡμέτερος : τ . λαόν μου , Matthew 2:6; μου τῃ ἀπιστιᾳ , Mark 9:24.

(d) τί ἐμοὶ καὶ σοί (= Heb. H1980 H4100, Judges 11:12, al.), i.e. what have we in common: Matthew 8:29, Mark 1:24; Mark 5:7, Luke 8:28, John 2:4; τί γάρ μοι , 1 Corinthians 5:2.

(e) The interchange of ἐγώ and ἡμεῖς , common in Papyri, appears in Pauline Epp. (v. M, Pr., 86 f., M, Th., 131 f.).

(f) κἀγώ (= καὶ ἐγώ ), and I, even I, I also: Matthew 2:8, Luke 2:48, John 6:56, Romans 3:7, 1 Corinthians 7:40, al.; κἀγώ . . . καί , both . . . and, John 7:28.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Deissmann (LAE p. 134 ff.) has drawn attention to the parallels to the solemn use of the first personal pronoun in the Fourth Gospel that may be adduced from inscriptions and magical texts. Thus in an inscr. in honour of Isis from Ios, written in ii/iii A.D., the contents of which are pre-Christian, we find—Εἶσις ἐγώ εἰμι ἡ τ [ύρανν ]ος πάσης χόρας. . ἐγὼ νόμους ἀνθρώποις ἐθέμην. . ἐγώ εἰμι Κρόνου θυγάτηρ πρεσβυτάτη al. And similarly in the magical papyrus P Lond 46.145 ff. (iv/A.D.) (= I. p. 69) ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ ἀκέφαλος δαίμων. . ἐγώ εἰμι ἡ ἀλήθεια ὁ μεισῶν ἀδικήματα γείνεσθαι ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ al. With the construction of the phrase τί ἐμοὶ καὶ σοί; in John 2:4 we may compare BGU IV. 1141.38 (B.C. 14) ἐδίδουν αὐτῷ διαστολὰς μηδὲν αὐτῶι καὶ ἐκείνωι εἶναι : for its meaning see F. C. Burkitt in JTS xiii. p. 594 f., where it is rendered, ";What have I and thou to do with that?";

On the difficult question of the substitution of ἡμεῖς for ἐγώ see Proleg. p. 86 f., and the Appended Note on ";Did St. Paul use the Epistolary Plural?"; in Milligan Thess. p. 131 f., where the following passages are cited in support of the view that the two numbers can be used interchangeably—P Hib I. 44.1, .4, .5 (B.C. 253) ἐγράψαμεν. . ὁρῶντες. . ὤιμην, P Tebt I. 58.6, .15 (B.C. 111) εὑρήκαμεν. . εὗρον, P Par 43.1 f. (B.C. 154) (= Witkowski.2, p. 79) εἰ ἔρρωσθαι, ἔρρωμαι δὲ καὐτοί, P Flor I. 34.7 (A.D. 342) ὁμολογῶ ὄμνυντες.
