καθώς,

I

1. Adv. = καθά, Hdt. 9.82 codd., Arist. Pr. 891b34, IG 5(2).344.20 (Arc., iii B.C.), Wilcken Chr. 11 A 53 (ii B. C.), IG 22.1030.22 (i B. C.), al.; even as, John 15:12.

2. how, ὑπομιμνῄσκειν κ... Aristeas 263, cf. Acts 15:12.

II of Time, as, when, ib. 7.17, LXX 2 Maccabees 1:31, Aristeas 310. (Condemned by Phryn. 397, Moer. 212.)

Thayer's Expanded Definition

καθώς (i. e. καθ' ὡς), a particle found occasionally in secular authors from Aristotle down for the Attic καθά and καθό, but emphatically censured by Phryn. and the Atticists; cf. Sturz, De dial. Maced. etc., p. 74ff; Lob. ad Phryn., p. 425f; (Winer's Grammar, 26 (25));

1. according as, just as, even as: in the first member of a comparison, Luke 6:31; 1 John 2:27; followed by οὕτως in the second member (cf. Winer's Grammar, § 53, 5), Luke 11:30; Luke 17:26; John 3:14; 2 Corinthians 1:5; 2 Corinthians 10:7; Colossians 3:13; 1 John 2:6; followed by καί also, John 15:9; John 17:18; John 20:21; 1 John 2:18; 1 John 4:17; 1 Corinthians 15:49; it is annexed to preceding words after the demonstrative οὕτως, Luke 24:24; with οὕτως unexpressed, Matthew 21:6; Matthew 28:6; Mark 16:7; Luke 1:2, 55, 70; Luke 11:1; John 1:23; John 5:23; Acts 10:47 (here L T Tr WH ὡς); ; Romans 1:13; Romans 15:7; 1 Corinthians 8:2; 1 Corinthians 10:6; 2 Corinthians 1:14; 2 Corinthians 9:3; 2 Corinthians 11:12; Ephesians 4:17, and often; καθώς διδάσκω, agreeably to my method of teaching, 1 Corinthians 4:17; καθώς γέγραπται, Matthew 26:24; Mark 9:13; Acts 7:42; Acts 15:15; Romans 1:17, and often in Paul; the apodosis lacking, and to be gathered from the context: καθώς παρεκάλεσα σε ... ἐν πίστει, namely, οὕτω καί νῦν παρακαλῶ, 1 Timothy 1:3, cf. Winers Grammar, 570 (530); (Buttmann, 386 (331)); ἤρξατο αἰτεῖσθαι (namely, οὕτω ποιεῖν αὐτοῖς), καθώς κτλ.. Mark 15:8 (Buttmann, § 151, 23 b.; cf. Winer's Grammar, 584 (543f)); in comparison by contrary we find the negligent use: ἀγαπῶμεν ἀλληλου, οὐ καθώς Κάϊν κτλ., 1 John 3:11f, cf. DeWette at the passage and Winer's Grammar, 623 (579); οὗτος ἐστιν ἄρτος ... οὐ καθώς etc., not such as they ate etc., John 6:58. with the verb εἰμί, equivalent to Latinqualis, such as, 1 John 3:2; in a parenthesis, 1 Thessalonians 2:13 (as it is in truth).

2. according as i. e. in proportion as, in the degree that: Mark 4:33; Acts 7:17 (cf. Meyer at the passage); ; 1 Corinthians 12:11, 18; 1 Peter 4:10.

3. since, seeing that, agreeably to the fact that (cf. Winer's Grammar, § 53, 8; 448 (417)): John 17:2; Romans 1:28 (yet here others regard καθώς as corresponsive rather than causal or explanatory); 1 Corinthians 1:6; 1 Corinthians 5:7; Ephesians 1:4; Philippians 1:7.

4. it is put for the simple ὡς, a. after verbs of speaking, in indirect discourse, Acts 15:14; it serves to add an epexegesis, 3 John 1:3 (to σου τῇ ἀλήθεια).

b. of time, when, after that (cf. Latinut): 2 Macc. 1:31; (Nehemiah 5:6); here many bring in Acts 7:17; but see 2 above.

STRONGS NT 2531a: καθώσπερ καθώσπερ (Tr καθώς περ), just as, exactly as: Hebrews 5:4 T Tr WH (also 2 Corinthians 3:18 WH marginal reading). (Himerius, Psellus, Tzetzes)

Other exx. of the particle, which is condemned by the Atticists (Lob. Phryn. p. 426), are P Eleph 18.6 (B.C. 223–2) καθ ̣ω ̣, [ς συντέτα ]χεν Μνήσαρχο [ς, P Lille I. 26.4 (iii/B.C.) τὴν δὲ λοιπὴν γ [ῆν ἑτο ]ι ̣μάζω, εἰ μὴ ἀκολουθεῖς ἅπαντα καθώς ἐστιν ἐπὶ τῆς διαγραφῆς, P Oxy XII. 1453.16 (B.C. 30–29) εἶ μὴν προστατήσ [ειν ] τοῦ λύχνου τῶν προδεδηλωμέν [ων ] ἱερῶν καθὼς πρόκειται, ";that we wiil superintend the lamps of the above mentioned temples, as aforesaid"; (Edd.), and from the inscrr.
