Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Lille I. 16.5 (iii/B.C.) εἰς τὸν Ἑ. λόγον ἐμπεσεῖν, ‘to be paid into the account of H."; : cf. P Tebt I. 17.9 (B.C. 114) ὅπως μὴ ἐπικατασχὼν αὐτὸν εἰς δαπάνας ἐμπέσῃς οὐκ ὀλίας, ";so that you may not detain him and thus incur no little expense"; (Edd.). In ib. 39.20 (B.C. 114) the verb is construed with the dat.—ἐμ ]πεσόντος μου τῶι Σισόϊτ [ι, ";I fell in with Sisois,"; and in P Ryl II. 68.9 (B.C. 89) it has the stronger sense of ";attack";—ἐμπεσοῦσα ἐξ ἀντιλο [γ ]ίας ε ̣͗[πληξέν ] με ταῖς αὐτῆς χερσὶν [πλη ]γαῖς πλεί [στα ]ις, ";attacking me in consequence of a dispute gave me many blows with her hands";(Edd.). Cf. P Oxy II. 243.26 (A.D. 79) σὺν τ [ο ]ῖς ἐμπεσουμένοις εἰς τούτοις (l. τούτους) [φ ]ο ̣ρ ̣τίοις πᾶσι, ";together with all fixtures which may be included in them"; (Edd.), and similarly ib. III. 494.21 (A.D. 156) καὶ καταχρᾶσθαι εἰς τὸ ἴδιον χ. [.] . ς ̣ τοῖς ἐμπεσουμένοις ἤτοι ἐκ πράσεως καὶ ἐξ ὑποθήκης ἀργυρίοις, ";to use for her personal requirements the money accruing from the sale or mortgage"; (Edd.). With the use in Hebrews 10:31 we may now compare Ev. Petr. 10 μὴ ἐμπεσεῖν εἰς χεῖρας τοῦ λαοῦ τῶν Ἰουδαίων.
