Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This word, which in the NT occurs only in Luke 14:29 f., is well attested, especially with reference to the performance of religious duties, e.g. P Tebt II. 302.30 (A.D. 71–2) ἐκτελοῦντες τὰς τῶν θεῶν λειτουργίας, and ib. 293.21 (c. A.D. 187), a report regarding the circumcision of an aspirant to the priesthood, as otherwise he cannot perform the sacred offices—διὰ [τ ]ὸ μὴ δύνασθαι τὰς ἱε [ρου ]ργίας ἐκτελεῖν. Other exx. of the verb are P Oxy VIII. 1121.15 (A.D. 295) τὰ καθήκοντα ἐπὶ τῷ θ ̣[α ]ν ̣άτῳ ἐξετέλεσα, ";I did all that was fitting on the occasion of her death,"; ib. XII. 1426.15 (A.D. 332) ἐκτελοῦντα τὴν χρείαν εἰς τὸ ἐν μηδενὶ μεμφθῆναι, ";for his performance of the duties to complete satisfaction,"; BGU IV. 1021.15 (iii/A.D.) ἐκτελοῦντα πάντα τὰ ἐπιτραπησόμενα αὐτῷ ὑπὸ τοῦ διδασκάλου —of a slave apprenticed to a trade, P Oxy I. 71i. 15 (A.D. 303) ἧς ἐξετέλεσα ἐπιμελίας ἀννώνης, ";the duty which I have performed as superintendent of the corn-supply"; (Edd.), P Cairo Preis 2.8 (A.D. 362) ἐξετέλεσα καὶ τὸ συνῆθες τῶν γάμων, and Cagnat IV. 844.9 (= C. and B. i. p. 182) ἀνδρὸς. . πάσας ἀρχὰς κὲ λειτουργίας λαμπρῶς κὲ ἐπιφανῶς ἐκτετ [ε ]λεκότος. MGr ξετελεύω, ";finish completely.";
