Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the literal use of ἐκκόπτω, as in Matthew 3:10, cf. P Fay 113.10 (A.D. 100) ἐξ αὐτον ἐκκόψαι θέλι φυτά, ";he wishes to cut down some of the trees"; (Edd.), and similarly 114.14, P Oxy VI. 892.10 (A.D. 338) ἵνα. . . διὰ ταχέων ταῦτα ἐκκόψας παρενεχθῆναι ποιήσῃς, ";with all speed to get the timber cut and delivered"; (Edd.). See also BGU I. 72.9 (A.D. 191) ἐξέκοψαν πλεῖστον τόπον ἐν ἀρούραις πέντε. The verb is metaph. in Vett. Val. p. 268.6 ἐὰν μή πως ἀκτὶς ἀγαθοποιῶν συνδραμοῦσα τὰ πολλὰ τῶν φαύλων ἐκκόψῃ.

A parallel to the NT use of ἐνκόπτω, as in 1 Thessalonians 2:18, is afforded by P Alex 4.1 (iii/B.C.) ἡμῖν ἐνκόπτεις καλά. The verb is intrans. in Vett. Val. p. 260.24 ὥσπερ γὰρ τροχὸς κυλιόμενος ἐνέκοψεν (sc. ἡ Σελήνη) ἐπὶ τὴν ἰδίαν ἐλθοῦσα ἐποχήν.
