Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The interpretation of Luke 11:41 πλὴν τὰ ἐνόντα δότε ἐλεημοσύνην, ";the contents of your cup and platter give in alms,"; may be supported by P Tebt II. 414.20 (ii/A.D.) τὸ σφυρίδιν μετὰ τῶν ἐνόντων κάτω, ";the little basket with its contents at the bottom"; : cf. P Magd 13.7 (B.C. 217) τὴν ἐφα ̣πτίδα, σὺν τῆι σακκοπήραι ἐν ἧι ἐνῆν, ";the mantle, with the bag which contained it,"; P Oxy II. 242.16 (A.D. 77) σὺν τοῖς ἐνοῦσι φορτίοις, ";with the fixtures they contain,"; ib. III. 506.27 (A.D. 143) σὺν τ ]οῖς ἐνοῦσι πᾶσι, ";with all their contents,"; ib. VI. 912.12 (A.D. 235) τὸ ἐνὸν κατάγειον, ";the cellar within it"; (sc. a house). See also P Oxy II. 268.18 (A.D. 58) ἐν δὲ τοῖς προκειμένοις οὐκ ἔνεστι σωματ (ισμός), ";in the above agreement there is no σωματισμός "; (a word of uncertain meaning), and PSI III. 184.6 (A.D. 292) καύματος ἐνόντος, where the context leads us to think of something in the nature of spontaneous combustion. See also s.v. ἔνι.
