Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the active of this verb see P Par 26.48 (B.C. 163–2) (= Selections, p. 17) ἐπιλαβόντα παρ᾽ ἡμῶν τὴν γραφὴν τῶν ὀφειλομένων ἡμῖν δεόντων, ";having received from us the written list of the necessaries due to us,"; BGU IV. 1138.20 (B.C. 19) ̣π ̣ι ̣λ ̣α ̣β ̣όντ (α) παρ᾽ αὐ ̣τ ̣(οῦ) τ ̣ο ̣, ν ̣ κ ̣ε ̣χωρηκ (ότα) : in a Magdola papyrus re-edited by Reinach in Mél. Nicole, p. 451 ff., we have .5 ἐπιλαβ [ὼν ] μάρτυρας. In OGIS 257.9 (B.C. 109) the verb is used without an accus. ";de rebus subito ingruentibus";—ἐν τοῖς ἐπει [ληφόσιν ἀναγκαι ]οτάτοις καιροῖς. The mid., which alone is found in the NT (cf. Proverbs 4:13), may be illustrated from P Hal I. 1 ii. 1 (iii/B.C.) ὁ μαρτυρίας ἐπιλαμβανόμενος, PSI IV. 366.4 (B.C. 250–49) ἐὰν ἐπιλαμβάνηται τῶν ἀνθρώπων καὶ τῆς βοός, and P Tebt II. 417.10 (iii/A.D.) ἐπὶ γὰρ ἐ [ὰν ] φθάσωμεν ἐπιλαβέσθαι τοῦ ἔργου δυνόμεθα αὐτ [ὸ ἀ ]φῖνε (l. ἀφεῖναι), ";for as soon as we make haste to set ourselves to the work we can finish it"; (note the late constr. of φθάνω c. inf.). The subst. occurs in P Tebt II. 335.9 (mid. iii/A.D.) φοβ ̣ου ̣μενος μὴ ἄρα εὑρεθείη ἐν αὐτοῖς ἐπίλημψι [ς, ";from fear that they might disclose a claim by seizure"; (Edd.), and see Preuschen Mönchtum, p. 65 for ἐπίλημπτος.
