Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἐνεργέω seems always to have the idea of effective working : see s.v. ἐνέργεια, and cf. Robinson Eph. p. 241 ff. The verb has begun in later Greek to be followed by a direct obj. in the acc. (cf. Proleg. p. 65), as in P Oxy XII. 1567 (iv/A.D.) according to the editors’ alternative reading—εἰ Θαεὶς εὗρεν τοῦτο τὸ τετράποδων (l.δον), ἐνεργήτω (l.είτω) τοῦτό μοι ἔξω. For the intrans. use see P Giss I. 78.4 (ii/A.D.) καλῶς δὲ ποιήσεις καὶ περὶ τὰ λοιπὰ ἐνεργήσασα, Vett. Val. p. 226.2 ἐνεργήσει πρὸς τὸ ἀγαθὸν ἢ φαῦλον : cf. Galatians 2:8, where, however, the trans. of Πέτρῳ is uncertain, either ";for Peter"; (RV), or perhaps better ";by Peter"; (Hort Christian Ecclesia, p. 85). On the possibility that in 1 Thessalonians 2:13 ἐνεργεῖται is pass. = ";is set in operation,"; see Milligan Thess. ad l., and for a similar usage of ἐνεργουμένη in James 5:16 see Proleg. p. 156, ExpT xxvi. p. 381 ff. From the inscrr. we may cite Syll 540.14 (B.C. 175–1) ἐνεργῶν τεχνίταις ἱκανοῖς κατὰ τὴν τέχνην, and .108 ποιῶν ὀρθὰ πάντα πρὸς κανόνα διηνεκῆ μὴ ἐλάττω τοῦ ἐνεργουμένου λίθου.
