Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The rather generalized use of this verb in Acts 10:38 is illustrated by P Petr III. 36 (a) verso.2 (Ptol.) πολλάκ [ις ] σοι γέγραφα διότι καταδεδυνάστευμαι (sic– the writer wished to change the tense) ἐν τῆι θυλ [α ]κῆι λιμῶι παραπολλύμενος, ";I have often explained to you in writing why I am being harshly treated in the prison, perishing from hunger"; : though the agent in Acts l.c. is the devil, the reference is to the physical sufferings attributed to possession.

For the verb of men in authority misusing their power, as in James 2:6 (cf. Wisdom of Solomon 2:10; Wisdom of Solomon 15:14; Wisdom of Solomon 17:2), see also P Oxy I. 67.15 (A.D. 338) where, in a dispute concerning property, the petitioner complains—καταδυναστεύοντες ἐπέχουσιν τῶν ἡμῖν διαφερόντων οἰκοπέ [δω ]ν, ";certain persons are oppressing me and occupying my own estates.";
