Vocabulary of the Greek NT

εὐδοκία is apparently confined to Jewish and Christian literature (to the usual reff. add Pss Sol 3.4, 8.39), but we can cite from our documents instances of the cognate noun εὐδόκησις, e.g. P Lond 289.35 (A.D. 91) (= II. p. 185) γεγωνεισμαι (l. γέγονε εἴς με) ἡ εὐδόκησις καθὼς προκῖται, P Oxy IX. 1200.35 (A.D. 266) οὐ προσδεόμενος ἑτέρας μου εὐδοκήσεως ἢ μεταλήμψεως, ";without requiring any further consent or concurrence from me"; (Ed.), and similarly ib. X. 1273.39 (A.D. 260). From the inscrr. we may cite Syll 929.108 (B.C. 139 ?) ἔλαβον εὐδόκησιν, and OGIS 335.122 (ii/B.C.) κατὰ τὴ [ν τοῦ δήμου ἐπιταγὴν καὶ τὴν βασιλέω ]ς εὐδόκησιν. All these passages confirm the meaning ";good pleasure,"; ";good will,"; which εὐδοκία seems to have in all its NT occurrences, even in Romans 10:1. On the important Luke 2:14 see Field Notes, p. 48 f., and for a defence of the reading of the TR and on εὐδοκία ἔμπροσθέν σου as ";a common periphrasis to avoid the anthropomorphism involved in God’s volition"; see McNeile on Matthew 11:26.
