Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the literal meaning ";fall out of,"; ";leave,"; we can cite P Rein 11.10 (B.C. 111) διὰ τὸ τοῦτον ἐκπεπτωκέναι καὶ μὴ εὑρίσκεσθαι, ";attendu que mon mari a quitté le pays et a disparu"; (Ed.). The idea of ending in failure or nothingness, as in James 1:11, is seen in Vett. Val. p. 70.27 καθαιρεῖται γὰρ τὸ ἀγαθὸν τοῦ ἀστέρος καὶ εἰς τὸ ἐναντίον ἐκπίπτει. See also Michel 827 A.14 (mid. iii/B.C.) τό τε νόμισμα τὸ ἐκπεπτωκὸς ἀριθμῶι, of coins that have fallen out of use. The verb is not infrequent with reference to crops that ";fall to be included"; in the produce of a particular year, e.g. BGU II. 591.9 (A.D. 56–7) βουλόμεθα μισθώσασθαι τοὺς ἐκπεπτωκότας εἰς τὸ τρίτον ε ̣̀τ ̣ο ̣ς ̣ Νέρωνος. . . φοινεικίνους καρπούς, P Fay 91.19 (A.D. 99) ]λ ̣α ̣ι ̣̈́κ ̣οὺς καρποὺς ἐκπεππτωκότας (l. ἐκπεπτωκ —) εἰς τὸ ἐνεστὸ (ς) τρίτον ἔτος. Cf. P Hib I. 78.10 (B.C. 244–3) a letter requesting that two persons should be released from some public service—διὰ τὸ μὴ ἐκπε ̣σ ̣[εῖ ]ν αὐτοῖς το ̣, νῦν λειτουργῆσαι, ";because it is not at present their turn to serve,"; where the editors point out that ἐκπεσ [εῖ ]ν, which has been corrected in the papyrus, is practically equivalent to προσπέσηι in l. .4 of the same document. For the compd. ὑπερεκπίπτω, see P Thead 10.12 (A.D. 307) ὑπὲρ τ ]οῦ ὑπερεκπίπτ [οντ ]ο [ς ] χρόνου, ";pour le temps supplémentaire"; (Ed.).
