Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The wider sense of evil-doing from a moral point of view, as in 1 Peter 3:17, 3 John 1:11, may be illustrated by P Hib I. 59.10 (c. B.C. 245) εἰ μὴ παύσει κ ̣[α ]κοποῶν ἐν τῆι κώμη [ι ] μεταμελή [σ ]ει σοι, ";if you do not stop your malpractices in the village you will repent it"; (Edd.), P Ryl II. 437.7 (i/A.D.) ἐὰν κακοποιο [—] καὶ ἄπρακτα τ ̣[—] εἰς πλοῖον ἐλ [ is too fragmentary to enable us to determine the exact force, but it seems to point to a more restricted sense ";injure,"; ";do harm to,"; as in the few occurrences of the verb in class. literature, and in Syll 653.103 (B.C. 91) ἐχέτω δὲ ἐπιμέλειαν ὁ ἀγορανόμος καὶ περὶ τοῦ ὕδατος, ὅπως. . . . μηθεὶς κακοποιεῖ μήτε [τὸ ] πλῆμα μήτε τοὺς ὀχετούς, ib. 893.15 (ii/A.D.) εἰ δέ τις τὴν ἐπιγραφὴν ἐκκόψῃ ἐκ τῆς παραστά [δο ]ς ἢ αὐτὴν ἄρῃ ἢ κακο [ποι ]ήσῃ, δώσ (ε)ι κτλ. See also Aristeas 164 πάντα γὰρ λυμαίνονται καὶ κακοποιοῦσι μύες οὐ μόνον πρὸς τὴν ἑαυτῶν τροφήν, ἀλλὰ καὶ εἰς τὸ παντελῶς ἄχρηστον γίνεσθαι ἀνθρώπῳ, ὅ τι ἂν δηποτοῦν ἐπιβάληται κακοποιεῖν, and Musonius p. 32.17 εὐεργετοῦνται μὲν οἱ ἀξιούμενοι τῶν ὠφελίμων καὶ συμφερόντων, κακοποιοῦνται δὲ οἱ ἐμβαλλόμενοι τοῖς ἀσυμφόροις καὶ βλαβεροῖς.
