Old & New Testament Greek Lexical Dictionary
Strong's #1512 - εἴ περ
- if indeed, since, if after all
From G1487 and G4007
In Witkowski’s collection of Ptolemaic letters the form εἶπον does not occur, but see εἶπα before a vowel in P Par 49.15 (B.C. 164–158) (= Witkowski.2, p. 70) εἶπα αὐτῶι μὴ ἐμὲ ἀξιοῦν, and the participle εἴπας in ib..20 ἀπέλυσα εἴπας αὐτῶι ὀρθρίτερον ἐλθεῖν. In P Par 45.7 (B.C. 153) (= Witkowski.2, p. 85) we have—μὴ εὕρη τι κατὰ σοῦ ἰπῖν. For the judicial use of the verb cf. P Tor I. 1x. 1 (B.C. 117–6) εἴπαμεν τῶι μὲν Ἑρμίαι μὴ εἰσβιάζεσθαι, ";edicimus Hermiae, ne vim inferat"; (Ed.) : cf. Archiv iv. p. 30. See also s.v. λέγω, and for the weak aor. terminations, which did not become common till i/A.D., see Moulton Gr. ii. § 88. A ";unique"; fut. εἰπόσει is found in BGU II. 597.6 (A.D. 75) : see Radermacher Gr. p. 77.
