Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This rare adjective, which in the NT is confined to 1 Peter 2:14, is found as an astrological term in a magical papyrus of iv/A.D., P Lond 122.16 ( = I. p. 116), ἀγαθοποιὲ τῆς οἰκουμένης : cf. ib. 46.48 (iv/A.D.) ( = I. p. 66) μετὰ ἀγαθοποιῶν, with reference to stars of benign influence. The verb is found in Aristeas (ed. Wendland) 242, ἀλλὰ δέον (l. δέον θεὸν) ἱκετεύειν, πάντα ἀγαθοποιεῖν.
