Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The use of this verb in 1 Thessalonians 2:9, 2 Thessalonians 3:8, is well illustrated in Syll 371.16 (time of Nero) where a certain physician is said to have behaved —ὡς μηδένα ὑφ᾽ αὑτοῦ παρὰ τὴν ἀξίαν τοῦ καθ᾽ ἑαυτὸν μεγέθους ἐπιβεβαρῆσθαι : cf. P Oxy XII. 1481.12 (early ii/A.D.) where a soldier writing to his mother adds as a postcript μὴ ἐπιβαροῦ πέμπειν τι ἡμῖν, ";do not burden yourself to send me anything."; Add Michel 394.52 (mid. i/B.C.) εἰς π [αρά ]τασιν καθ [ίστησιν ] ὅσον ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ τοὺς ἐπιβαροῦντας, καὶ τοῖς ἀδίκως ἐπι [βαρη ]θ [εῖ ]σι δικαίαν παρέχεται βοήθειαν, and see further s.v. βαρέω.
