Vocabulary of the Greek NT

κακία is used in P Petr II. 23(1).9 (Ptol.) ἰδ [ ]ντες τὴν κακίαν τῶν ἡμῶν, apparently of the damage done to a crop of rye and barley by hail (?) : cf. P Flor II. 176.11 (A.D. 256) ἐκ τῆς τῶν σύκων κακίας. In P Petr II. 19(2).5 (Ptol.) διὰ τὴν ἐν [εστ ]ῶσαν ? κακίαν, the reference is to the ";idleness"; of certain workmen. For the stronger meaning ";malice,"; ";wickedness,"; see P Rein 7.15 (B.C. 141 ?) διὰ πάση ]ς ̣ ἡσυχίας εἶχον τῶι μηδεμίαν ἔννοιαν [κ ]ακίας ἔχειν, ";je restai complètement tranquille, n’ayant aucun soupçon qu’il me cherchât malice"; (Ed.), P Oxy VIII. 1101.7 (A.D. 367–70) εἴτε ὑπὸ κακίας ἢ καὶ ὑπὸ κακο [βουλεία ]ς τῆς πρ [ο ]αιρέσεως, ";whether from malice or from perversity of judgment"; (Ed.); also Preisigke 4127.6 ἀλότριον ἐμαυτὸν ἐποιησάμην πάσης κακείας καὶ πάσ [ης. . . ]οτος καὶ ἁγνεύσας ἐς πολὺν χρόν [ον. The special usage in Matthew 6:34 is supported by the LXX, where κακία frequently translates Heb. רָעָה in the sense of ";trouble,"; ";evil circumstances"; : cf. Kennedy Sources, p. 100.
