Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Contemporary usage makes it clear that in 2 Thessalonians 2:2 ὡς ὅτι ἐνέστηκεν ἡ ἡμέρα τοῦ Κυρίου, ἐνέστηκεν should be rendered as pointing to strictly present time, ";as that the day of the Lord is now present"; (RV) and not ";is at hand"; (AV) : see, e.g., the references to the current month and year in such passages as BGU I. 22.6 (A.D. 114) (= Selections, p. 74) τῇ δ τοῦ ἐνεστῶτος μηνὸς Φαρμοῦθι, P Fay 28.10 (A.D. 150–1) (= Selections, p. 82) εἰς τὸ ἐνεστὸς ι ̄δ ̄ (ἔτος) : cf. Milligan Thess. p. 97, Zahn Intr. i. p. 235. Add such passages as P Tebt II. 383.37 (A.D. 46) where certain shares are assigned to contracting parties ἀπὸ τῆς ἐνεστώσης ἡμέρας ἐπὶ τὸν ἅπαντα χρόνον, P Lond 1164(h).6 (A.D. 212) (= III. p. 164) ἀπὸ τῆς ἐνεστώσης καὶ ὑποκειμένης ἡμέρας, P Oxy I. 37i. 11 (A.D., 49) ἐνέστηι ἡ προθεσμία τοῦ δευτέρου ἐνιαυτοῦ, κα [ ] π ̣άλιν ἀπέλαβεν, ";the appointed day in the second year came, and again she received (her wages),"; and P Flor I. 1.6 (A.D. 153) τῆς προθεσμίας ἐνστάσης, so ib. 81.10 (A.D. 103). Mayser Gr. p. 371 collects many instances illustrating various forms of the verb.
