Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This adj. in the form ἐνεργός is applied to a mill ";in working order";—μυλαῖον ἐνεργόν —in P Ryl II. 167.10 (A.D. 39), cf. ib. 321.5 (ii/A.D.), BGU IV. 1067.4 (A.D. 101–2), and P Oxy XII. 1461.6 (A.D. 222). In P Oxy I. 84.14 (A.D. 316) it is used of ";wrought"; iron—σιδή [ρο ]υ ἐνεργοῦ, and in Syll 929.72 (ii/B.C.) of ";tilled"; land—ὑπάρχουσαν τὴν διαμφισβητουμένην χώραν ἐνεργόν. In PSI IV. 341.5 (B.C. 256–5) the reference is to persons—ἵνα οὖν ἐνεργοὶ ὦμεν : cf. ib. 407.9 (iii/B.C.). For the NT form ἐνεργής, cf. Vett. Val. p. 276.11 ἐν τούτοις γὰρ τὰ ἀποτελέσματα ἐνεργῆ τὴν δύναμιν κέκτηνται, and the new literary text P Oxy VIII. 1088.56 (early i/A.D.), where a medical receipt is described as ἐνεργὲς ἱκανῶς, ";tolerably strong.";
