Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The force of this adj. in James 3:17 (cf. 4 Maccabees 12:6) ";willing to yield,"; ";compliant,"; may be illustrated from a contract in which a woman Ammonarion and her daughter Ophelous agree to accept from Antiphanes a certain sum of money in lieu of Ammonarion’s dowry—P Oxy II. 268.6 (A.D. 58) συνχωροῦμεν [πρὸς ἀλλήλο ]υς ἐπὶ τοῖσδε, ὥστε η ̣̔ [Ἀμμωνάριο ]ν [καὶ ] ἡ Ὠφελοὺς εὐπιθεῖς γεγονυῖαι καὶ ἀπεσχηκυῖαι [παρὰ τοῦ Ἀντ ]ιφάνους κτλ., ";we agree with each other as follows : —A. and O. have given their consent and have received from A. etc."; (Edd.). Other instances of the word from legal documents of the Augustan age are BGU IV. 1104.23 (B.C. 10) δ ̣ι ̣α ̣̣ τ ̣ο ̣υ ̣̑ ̣̣π ̣ὲρ τούτων εὐπειθῆ γεγονέναι, ib. 1155.17 (B.C. 10) νυνὶ δὲ ε ̣ ̣π ̣[ε ]ιθὴς γεγονὼς ῢ ̣̣π ̣ο ̣̣ [τῆς ] Μ ̣α ̣ρ ̣θ ̣α ̣ς ̤, ib. 1163.7 (B.C. 17). The verb is supplied by the editor in OGIS 665.5 (A.D. 49) ἵν᾽ εἰδό [τες ] αὐτὰ καὶ [εὐπ ]ειθῆτε, where he explains εὐπειθεῖν as = εὐπειθῆ εἶναι.
