Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A literary citation for this Stoic word may be made from P Grenf I. 14 (ii/B.C.), the Erotic fragment, where the faithless lover is called ἀκαταστασίης εὑρέτης. See also the astrological papyrus published in Archiv i. p. 493 f. τῆς συ [μβ ]ίου σῆς ἀκαταστασί [αν ] (l. 25 f.). It occurs nearly a dozen times in Vettius Valens, coupled with πλάνη καὶ ἀλητεία (p. 418), ἀνωμαλία (p. 4418—one MS.), στάσις, ἔχθρα, συνοχή, κρίσις, ταραχή, etc. : it several times has οἰκείων dependent on it. The verb ἀκαταστατέω also occurs three times. That the astrologers had so thoroughly domesticated it does not prove that Paul, James and Luke were using a word of the higher culture.
