Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In a soldier’s letter to his father the writer announces—ἐλπίζω ταχὺ προκόσαι (l. προκόψαι) τῶν θε [ ]ν θελόντων, ";I hope to be quickly promoted, if the gods will"; (BGU II. 423.17 (ii/A.D.) = Selections, p. 91). Nero is described as ὁ δὲ τῆς οἰκουμένης καὶ προσδοκηθεὶς καὶ ἐλπισθείς in P Oxy VII. 1021.6 (A.D. 54) : cf. Syll 364.5 (A.D. 37) ἐπεὶ ἡ κατ᾽ εὐχὴν πᾶσιν ἀνθρώποις ἐλπισθεῖσα Γαΐου Καίσαρος Γερμανικοῦ Σεβαστοῦ ἡγεμονία κατήνγελται, οὐδὲν δὲ μέτρον χαρᾶς εὕρηκ (ε)ν ὁ κόσμος κτλ. When in P Ryl II. 243.8 (ii/A.D.) two women write to their steward ἐλπίζοντες σὺν θεῷ τὸ πεδείον σπαρῆναι, the use of θεός alone does not, as the editors note, imply that the writer was a Christian (cf. Archiv i. p. 436), but P Iand 11.2 (iii/A.D.) ἐλπίδω γὰρ εἰς θεὸν ὅτι παρακληθῆναι [βούλεται ὁ κύριός ] μ ̣ο ̣υ ὁ Ἐ [πίμα ]χος seems to point to Christian (or Jewish) authorship, cf. 1 Peter 3:5 and see the editor’s note. See also PSI IV. 301.9 (v/A.D.) ἐλπίζωμεν (l. ομεν) γὰρ εἰς τὸν θεὸν τὸν παντοκράτορα. MGr ἐλπίζω, ἐρπίζω.
