Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Wellhausen’s assertion (Einl. p. 33 f.) that . τῇ κρίσει in Matthew 5:28 is ";ungriechisch"; is sufficiently ruled out by Grimm’s apt parallel . τῇ γραφῇ, ";liable to be indicted,"; from Xenophon (Mem. i. 2. 64) : Blass Gr. p. 106 makes the dative in Mt l.c. ";the commoner classical construction."; The dat. of the crime, also classical, is found in Hellenistic, as P Eleph 23.19 (B.C. 223–2) . τῆι ἀσεβείαι τοῦ ὅρκου, and other exx. cited under ἀσέβεια : the phrase ἢ ἔνοχος εἴην τῷ ὅρκῳ recurs very frequently, e.g. P Oxy I. 82.7(mid. iii/A.D.), P Ryl II. 82.14 (A.D. 113), ib. 88.25 (A.D. 156), P Fay 24.17 (A.D. 158). In an edict of the Prefect Aulus Avillius Flaccus (i/A.D.) we find θανάτωι ἔνοχος ἔσ [τωι, which prompts Wilcken (Archiv. i. p. 170, n..8) to observe on Matthew 26:66 that the Prefect writes better Greek than the Evangelist. ";Or is the illogical genitive θανάτου only a MS. corruption due to the fusion of u and o vowels in the later vernacular ?"; The gen. in 1 Corinthians 11:27 is claimed by Deissmann (LAE p. 116) as a Cilician provincialism of Paul. For an ex. of ., with the dat. of the penalty, contemporary with the NT writings, see P Oxy II. 275.32 (a contract of apprenticeship—A.D. 66) (= Selections, p. 57) ἐὰν δὲ καὶ αὐτὸ [ς ὁ ] Πτολεμαῖος μὴ ἐγδιδάξῃ τὸν παῖ [δ ]α, ἔνοχος ἔστω τοῖς ἴσοις ἐπιτε [ ]μοις, ";but if Ptolemaeus himself does not teach the boy thoroughly, let him be liable to like penalties"; : cf. Ach. Tat. viii. 10 δυσὶ θανάτοις ἔνοχ. From the inscrr. we have Michel 827 A. .50 (mid. iii/B.C.) ἔνοχοι ἔστωσαν τῶι κατὰ τὸν τῆς οἰκονομίας νόμωι. Vett. Val. p. 117.10 κατάμοιχοι γίνονται ἢ ἔνοχοι μοιχείας shows the gen. of the crime, as in Mark 3:29, Genesis 26:11, 2 Maccabees 13:6.

For the subst. ἐνοχή = ";obligatio,"; see P Iand 48.11 (A.D. 582) with the editor’s note, and Wenger Stellvertretung, p. 262.
