Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A striking curse from Phlius may be cited from Syll 810 to illustrate Romans 12:19. The fragment runs—καὶ ὅτι ἂν ποιῇς, το [ῦτο ] εἰς σεαυτὸν τρεπέ [σθω ·] ταῦτά σοι εὐχόμε [θα.] εἰ δέ τι ἑκὼν ἐξαμαρτ [ήσει ], οὐκ ἐμὸν ἐπαράσ [ασθαι ], δίκη δὲ ἐπικρέματα [ι ] τιμωρὸς ἀπελθόν [τι ] ἀπειθὴς Νεμέσε [ως, ";it is not mine to invoke curses, but the inexorable vengeance of Nemesis hangs over you as you go."; Ἐκδικία is found in P Oxy VIII. 1121.21 (A.D. 295) ἐκδικίαν αἰτεῖν, ";demand satisfaction,"; ib. XII. 1556.8 (A.D. 247) ἄχρι τῆς παρὰ τῷ μείζονι ἐκδικίας.
