Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In a deed of gift BGU III. 993.10 (B.C. 127) the signatories are introduced by ἑκόντες συνεγράψαντο. From the inscrr. we may cite Syll 810.4 εἰ δέ τι ἑκὼν ἐξαμαρτ [ήσει ], οὐκ ἐμὸν ἐπαράσ [ασθαι,] δικὴ δὲ ἐπικρέματα [ι ] τιμωρὸς ἀπελθόν [τι ] ἀπειθὴς Νεμέσε [ως : cf. Romans 12:19. In OGIS 139.10 (ii/B.C.) the priests of Isis complain that they are obliged παρουσίας αὐτοῖς ποιεῖσθαι οὐχ ἑκόντας, evidently with reference to the preparations which the παρουσίαι or ";visits"; of high officials entailed.
