Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In striking resemblance to Philippians 2:10 is the use of this word in the magic P Par 574.3043 (iii/A.D.) (= Deissmann LAE, p. 252 f.) καὶ σὺ λάλησον ὁποῖον ἐὰν ἦς ἐπεουράνιον ἢ ἀέριον εἴτε ἐπίγειον εἴτε ὑπόγειον ἢ καταχθόνιον κτλ. The passage ";is not a quotation from St. Paul,"; but ";the papyrus and St. Paul are both using familiar Jewish categories"; (ib. p. 257 n..11). See also P Lond 46.167 (iv/A.D.) (= I. p. 70) ἵνα μοι ἦν ὑπήκοος πᾶς δαίμων οὐράνιος καὶ αἰθέριος καὶ ἐπίγειος καὶ ὑπόγειος κτλ., and Wünsch AF 4.11 (iii/A.D.) where ἐπίγειος is found in combination with οὐράνιος and χθόνιος. In P Petr II. 8(c).10 (B.C. 246) ἐπίγεια, ";ground-floor buildings,"; are contrasted with πύργος διώρυφος, ";a tower of two stories"; (see the Editor’s note). On the form see Mayser Gr. p. 448.
