Vocabulary of the Greek NT

εἶτα is praised by Phrynichus (ed. Lobeck, p. 124) as against the ";barbarous"; εἶτεν, but it occurs frequently alike in the New Menander and in vernacular documents : see e.g. P Fay 12.20 (c. B.C. 103) ἐξέδυσαν ὃ περ [ιε ]βεβλήμην ἱμάτιον καὶ τοῦτο ἀπηλλάγησαν ἔχοντ [ες ἐ ]ξέντες γυμνόν. εἶθ᾽ οὕτω ̣ς ̣ με ̣τ ̣᾽ ἐνδύματος. . . ὑπὸ τῶν γνωρίμων κτλ. ";they stripped me of the garment I was wearing, and went off with it, sending me forth naked. Afterwards, a garment having been (supplied) by my friends,"; etc. (Edd.). BGU II. 665.10 (i/A.D.) [γ ]ὼ τῷ πατρί μου γράψω τὸ μὲν πρῶτον περὶ τοῦ τοκετοῦ αὐτῆς τὸ ἀνανκαιότερον, εἶτα καὶ περὶ τῆς διαλλαγῆς, ib. IV. 1019.4 (mid. ii/A.D.) πολλὰς καταστάσεις πρὸς αὐτὸν πεποίηται. Ε [ ]τα καὶ ἐπὶ Νεοκύδην τὸν γενόμενον δικαιοδότην ἧκεν, and P Lond 1173.6 (A.D. 125) (= III. p. 208) ἐπ [έτρε ]ψάς [μ ]οι διὰ λόγον μηκέτι κατερ [γάζεσθαι ] ε [ ]τ ̣α τὸ ἐμὲ δαπανῆσαι ἀπὸ τῆ [ς ] συμ [φ ]ωνίας ἧς ἐποίησας πρὸς τοὺς [ἐργά ]τας. These exx. confirm Hort’s comment on James 1:15 that ";εἶτα, when historical . . . marks a fresh and distinct incident."; This force is considerably weakened in the boy’s letter to his father, P Oxy I. 119.6 (ii/iii A.D.) (= Selections, p. 103), where the word hardly admits of translation—οὐ μὴ γράψω σε ἐπιστολήν, οὔτε λαλῶ σε, οὔτε υἱγένω σε εἶτα, ";I won’t write you a letter, or speak to you, or wish you health no more.";
