Vocabulary of the Greek NT

εὖ is rare in the papyri, having given place to καλῶς : cf. Mayser Gr. p. 459. It must, however, be kept in view that εὖ continues to recur in certain epistolary phrases, as in P Oxy X. 1292.3 (c. A.D. 30) εὖ [π ]οήσεις ἐμβαλόμενός μοι κενώματα διακ [ ]σια, ";please put on board for me two hundred empty jars"; (Edd.), ib. I. 115.12 (ii/A.D.) εὖ πράττετε, ib. III. 527.9 (ii/iii A.D.) ἐρρῶσθ (αι) εὔχομ (αι) εὖ πράττοντ (α), ";I pray for your health and prosperity"; (Edd.), and in such closing adjurations as P Eleph 23.19 (B.C. 223–2) ε [ ]ορκοῦ [ντι ] μέμ μ [ο ]ι [ε ]ὖ εἴη, ἐφιορκοῦντι δὲ ἔνοχον ̣ εἶναι τῆι ἀσεβείαι τ ̣οῦ ὅρκου, P Ryl II. 108.19 (A.D. 110–11) εὐορκοῦ [σι ] μὲν ἡμεῖν εὖ ε [ ]η, [ἐπ ]ι ̣[ορκοῦσι δὲ τ ]α ̣̣ ἐν ̣[αν ]τ ̣ι ̣α ̣, et alibi. The classical phrase εὖ γὰρ ἴσθι (cf. the simple ἴστε in Ephesians 5:5, Hebrews 12:17) is found in the touching letter of Epicurus to a child—εὖ γὰρ ἴσθι, ἡ αἰτία ὅτι καὶ ἐγὼ καὶ ο [ ] λοιποὶ πάντες σε μέγα φιλοῦμεν κτλ., ";for be sure, the reason why I and all the others love you greatly,"; etc. : see Selections, p. 6.
