Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the legal formula ἐμμένω with or without ἐν followed by the dat. of a participle, of which apparently we have a reminiscence in Galatians 3:10, cf. P Tor II. 8.31 (ii/B.C.) ἐμμένειν δὲ ἀμφοτέρους ἐν τοῖς πρὸς ἑαυτοὺς διωμολογημένοις, P Oxy I. 38.16 (A.D. 49–50) (= Selections, p. 53) τοῦ δὲ Σύρου μὴ βουλομένου ἐνμεῖναι τοῖς κεκριμένοις, ";Syrus, however, refuses to comply with the judgment,"; BGU II. 600.6 (ii/iii A.D.) ἐνμένω πᾶσι ταῖς προγεγραμέν [α ]ις [ἐν ]τολαῖς, and, as showing its persistence, the late P Flor I. 93.29 (a deed of divorce—A.D. 569) ἄκοντα ἐμμεῖναι πᾶσι τοῖς προγεγραμμένοις. The dat., as in Acts 14:22, is found also in Syll 879.20 (end of iii/B.C.) ἐπεύχεσθαι τοῖς ἐμμένουσιν καὶ ταῖς πειθομέναις τῶιδε τῶι νόμωι εὖ εἶναι, and in the much later P Oxy I. 138.36 (A.D. 610–1) τούτοις ἐμμένειν, ταῦτα διαφυλάττειν, ";abide by these conditions and observe them."; See also P Tebt II. 382.22 (B.C. 30—A.D. 1) ὀμνύο Καίσαραν θεοῦ υἱὸν Αὐτοκράτορα εἶ μὴν ἐμμενεῖν καὶ ποιήσειν πάντ [α κτλ., ";will truly abide by and perform all etc.,"; P Oxy III. 494.28 (A.D. 156) τὸν ] δὲ παραβησόμενον ἐκτίνειν τῷ ἐμμένοντι τό τε βλάβος καὶ ἐπίτειμον ἀργυρίου τάλαντα δύο, ";and that he who shall transgress [the terms of a will] shall forfeit to the party abiding by it the damages and a fine of two talents of silver,"; and so P Flor I. 51.23 (A.D. 138–61). Cf. Deissmann BS, p. 248 f., Berger Strafklauseln, p. 3.
