For the literal use of this verb of a successful journey cf. PSI IV. 299.11 (iii/A.D.) μακροψ [ ]χ ̣[ει ] οὖν, ἀδελφή, ἄχρεις οὗ ἄν με θεὸς εὐοδώσῃ [πρὸς ] ὑμᾶς, and so .14, also P Iand 62.3 (vi/A.D.) ἢ ο ̣ι ̣̀κ ̣ο ̣[θε ]ν ̣ εὐοδ [ω ]θῶ, in a much mutilated context. On the pres. subj. εὐοδῶται in 1 Corinthians 16:2, see Proleg. p. 54. The LXX use of the verb is fully illustrated by Anz Subsidia, p. 290.
