Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the phrase κακῶς ἔχειν, as in Matthew 4:24 etc., cf. P Oxy VI. 935.15 (iii/A.D.) ἔμελλον. . ἀναβῆναι. . ἐπε [ὶ οἱ παρὰ ] Σαραπίω [νος ] εἶπον ̣ [κακ ]ῶς ἔχειν α ̣[ ]τ ̣[όν, ";I intended to come up since Sarapion’s friends said that he was ill"; (Edd.), ib. 938.5 (iii/iv A.D.) τῶν οὖν κτηνῶν κακῶς ἐχόντων, ";since, then, the oxen are in a bad way."; The combination κακοὺς κακῶς ἀπολέσει αὐτούς in Matthew 21:41 sounds rather literary, but cf. ὁ τούτων τι ποιῶν κακὸς κακῇ ἐξωλείᾳ ἀπόλοιτο in Syll 584.5 f., which Michel doubtfully assigns to i/B.C. The inscr. is from Smyrna, apparently from a temple of Atargatis, whose sacred fishes are protected by this portentous curse : he who injures them is to die, ἰχθυόβρωτος γενόμενος (cf. the formation of the adj. σκωληκόβρωτος, Acts 12:23). It seems clear that the collocation κακοὺς κακῶς ἀπολέσθαι, starting as a literary phrase, had been perpetuated in common parlance, like our stock quotations from Shakespeare. Cf. also the inscr. from the Roman catacomb of Priscilla, Kaibel 734.7 f.—

ὅ ποτε πλούσιος περὶ τέκνα νῦν κακὸν κακῶς

τηρῶν ὡς Τάνταλος κολάζομαι.

For other exx. of the adverb see P Petr II. 19(2).3 (Ptol. ) ἔρρειμαι γὰρ κακῶς διακείμενος ἀπ᾽ ἐκείνου, P Oxy X. 1346 (ii/A.D. ?) ἐν τῇ (?)] πόλει γέγναπ ̣τ ̣α ̣ι ̣ καὶ κακῶς ἐγνάφη, ib. I. 34 versoiii. 12 (A.D. 127) διὰ ἀπειθίαν κ [ακ ]ῶς ἀφορμὴν ζητοῦντας ἁμαρτημάτω [ν ] τειμωρήσομαι, where Brinkmann (see Kuhring Praep. p. 41 n..3) suggests κ [ακ ]ῶς for the editors’ κ [αὶ ] ὡς, and ib. 40.8 (ii/iii A.D.) τάχα κακῶς αὐτοὺς ἐθεράπευσας, of possible wrong medical treatment.
