Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἐλεέω, ἐλεάω is found in the interesting but obscure letter written to a man in money difficulties BGU IV. 1079.23 (A.D. 41) (= Selections, p. 40) ἐρώτα αὐτὸν καθ᾽ ἡμέραν · τάχα δύναταί σε ἐλεῆσαι, ";ask him daily : perhaps he can have pity on you"; : cf. P Fay 106.16 (c. A.D. 140) ἐξησθένησα [ . . .. ] κύριε, ὅθεν ἀξιῶ σαὶ τὸν σω [τῆρα ] ἐλεῆσαί με, ";I became very weak, my lord; wherefore I entreat you my preserver to have pity on me,"; P Oxy VI. 904.2 (v/A.D.) (cited s.v. γηράσκω), and from the inscrr. Syll 418.88 (A.D. 238) ἵνα ἐλεηθέντες διὰ τὴν θείαν σου πρόνοιαν κτλ. For a Christian use, see the prayer P Oxy III. 407.3 (iii/iv A.D.) βοήθησόν μοι ἐλέησόν με ἐξάλιψόν μοι τὰς ἁμαρτίας. For a suggestion that ";Kyrie eleison was a common Jewish prayer formula, which was adopted by Christians,"; see JTS xvi. p. 548 f. Sharp (Epict. p. 4) cites in illustration of Matthew 20:30 f. Epict. ii. 7. 12 τὸν θεὸν ἐπικαλούμενοι δεόμεθα αὐτοῦ · κύριε, ἐλέησον · ἐπίτρεψόν μοι ἐξελθεῖν —a passage dealing with divination. In MGr the verb is used with the acc. = ";give alms to.";

WH read forms derived from ἐλεάω in Romans 9:16, Judges 1:22 f. For other exx. of the mixing of —άω and —έω in the NT cf. Blass Debrunner Gr. p. 50, and on the similar tendency in ";vulgar"; writers and in MGr see Maidhof Begriffsbestimmung, p. 361 f.
