Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the genitive construction after this neuter adjective in 2 Peter 2:14 ἀκαταπάστονς ἁμαρτίας, cf. such examples from the papyri as P Tebt I. 12426 (c. B.C. 118) ἀσυκοφαντή (τους) καὶ ἀδιστάστους ὄντος πάσης αἰ [τ ]ίας, BGU III. 9707 f. (A.D. 177) τῆς εἰς ἅπαντας εὐεργεσίας. . . ἀβοήθητος : see Proleg. p. 235. In view of the common vulgar change of αυ to α ̄ (as in Ἄγουστος, ἀτός, etc.—see Proleg. p. 47) it is not improbable that ἀκατάπαυστος may be the word intended, so that the mass of the MSS. have glossed correctly. Prof. Thumb suggests that the influence of ἐπάην may have affected the form. For this word cf. PSI 2852 (iii/iv A.D.—magic) ἔρωτι ἀκαταπαύστῳ.
