Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἱερουργέω should receive the full force of ";sacrifice"; in Romans 15:16, the only place where it occurs in the NT : cf. Field Notes, p. 165 and SH ad l. The subst. is used in the wider sense of ";a sacred function"; in P Tebt II. 293.20 (c. A.D. 187) a report on an application for circumcision—διὰ [τ ]ὸ μὴ δύνασθαι τὰς ἱε [ρου ]ργίας ἐκτελεῖν εἰ μὴ τοῦτ [ο γενήσετα ]ι, ib. 294.24 (A.D. 146) ἵνα καὶ αἱ ὀφίλ [ο ]υσαι ἱερουργίαι τῶν σε φιλούντων θεῶν ἐπιτελῶνται : cf. also P Par 69E. .14 (A.D. 233) συ ]νηθῶν ἱερουργιῶν Δι [. . . . γει ]νομένων. In Syll 644.3 (end of iii/B.C.) reference is made τοῖς ἱερουργοῖς τῆς Ἀθηνᾶς τῆς Ἰτωνίας, who are described by Dittenberger as ";collegium eorum qui sacris Minervae Itoniae intererant.";
