Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This word, which is almost unknown outside Bibl. and eccles. writings, occurs in P Oxy VI. 924, a Christian charm of Gnostic character, belonging to iv/A.D. After a prayer to the Deity to protect the petitioner from ague etc., the charm continues—.8 ταῦτα εὐ ̣[μενῶ ]ς ̣ [π ]ρ ̣α ̣[ξ ]εις ὅλως κατὰ τὸ θέλημά σου πρῶτον καὶ τὴν πίστιν αὐτῆς, ";all this thou wilt graciously do in accordance with thy will first and with her faith"; (Edd.). Cf. also P Lond 418.9 (c. A.D. 346) (= II. p. 303) τὸ θε ̣λ ̣ημα τ ̣η ̣̑ς ψυχῆς σου. The Pauline usage of the word is discussed by Slaten Qualitative Nouns, p. 52 ff.
