Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The 2nd sing. pres. midd. καυχᾶσαι, as in Romans 2:17; Romans 2:23, 1 Corinthians 4:7 (cf. Sirach 6:7 κτᾶσαι, and see Thackeray Gr. i. p. 218) which has been formed afresh in the Κοινή with the help of the—σαι that answers to 3rd sing.—ται in the perf., is paralleled by χαριεῖσαι = χαριεῖ in P Grenf II. 14 (c).7 (B.C. 264 or 227) : cf. P Oxy II. 292.9 (c. A.D. 25) χαρίεσαι δέ μου τὰ μέγιστα, ";you will confer upon me a very great favour,"; and see Proleg. p. 53 f., Mayser Gr. p. 328, Rader-macher Gr. p. 73, and Wackernagel ThLZ xxxiii. (1908) p. 639. For the verb cf. P Oxy VIII. 1160.7 ff. (iii/iv A.D.) ἔγραψάς μοι. . . ὅτι καυχώμενος ἔχ (l. ἔχω) ὄνομα Διοδώρου ὅτι ἔπεμψά σοι ἀργύρια · ἐγὼ γὰρ οὐ καύχομαι (l. καυχῶμαι) ἐμαυτὸν < > ἔπεμψά σοι, ";you wrote me that my boastfulness earns me the name of ‘ Gift of Zeus’ because I sent you money; but I do not boast about what I sent you"; (Ed.), PSI I. 26.16 (v/A.D.) καυχᾶσθαι γὰ ̣ρ ̣ [εἰς ἐ ]λπίδας μ [αταίας. For Harnack’s defence of the reading καυχήσωμαι in 1 Corinthians 13:8 see Berliner Si tzu ngsberich te, 1911, p. 139 ff. (E. Tr. Exp : VIII. iii. p. 395 ff.), and for the constructions of καυχάομαι in the NT see Deissmann In Christo, p. 64f
