Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The meaning which Souter (Lex. s.v.) gives to this adj. (not found in Attic writers) in its only occurrence in the NT (Titus 2:3 : cf. 4 Maccabees 9:25; 4 Maccabees 11:20) ";like those employed in sacred service,"; is supported by Dibelius (HZNT ad l.), who cites an inscr. from Foucart Associations religieuses, p. 240, No. 66.3, .13 ἱεροπρεπῶς καὶ φιλοδόξως of certain religious functions : cf. also Michel 163.21 (Delos—B.C. 148–7) τὰς θυσίας. . . καλῶς καὶ ἱεροπρεπῶ [ς ] συνετέλεσεν, Priene 109.216 (c. B.C. 120) προεπόμπευσεν. . ι ̣̈̀ε ̣ρ ̣οπρεπῶς. For the adj. see Dio Cass. lvi. 46, and for ἱερόδουλος see s.v. δουλεύω, and cf. P Hib I. 35.5 (c : . B.C. 250) οἱ λοιποὶ ἱερόδουλοι διατελο [ ]μεν τοὺς φόρους εὐτακτοῦντες εἰς τὸ ἱερόν, with the editors’ note.
