Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this verb in the original sense of ";inherit"; we may cite BGU I. 19ii. 1 (a petition—A.D. 135) τὰ μαμμῷα (not in LS.8) κληρονομεῖν, ";to inherit her grandmother’s belongings,"; P Ryl II. 117.13 (A.D. 269) τοὺς μηδὲν [τ ]ῶν κ ̣α ̣τοιχομένων κεκληρονομηκότας μὴ κατεχέσθαι τοῖς ἐκείνων ὀφε ̣[ιλήμασι ]ν ἢ καὶ ζητήμασιν σαφῶς τοῖς θείοις νόμοις διώρισται, ";it is clearly stated in the Imperial laws that those who have inherited nothing from deceased persons cannot be held responsible for their debts or the claims made against them"; (Edd.), BGU IV. 1024viii. 16 (end of IV/A.D.) κληρονομήσι (l.σει) δέκατον μέρος τῶν ὑπαρχόντων Διοδήμῳ. In all these cases the verb is construed with the ace. of the thing as generally in later writers and in the NT (cf. Schmidt Jos. p. 374 f. ). For the ace. of a person (cf. LXX Proverbs 13:22) see P Oxy VII. 1067.8 (iii/A.D.) μάθε οὖν ὅτι ἀλλοτρίαν γυναῖκαν (l. ἀλλοτρία γυνὴ) ἐκληρονόμησεν αὐτόν, ";know then that another man’s wife is made his heir,"; P Ryl I. 28.226 (iv/A.D.) δοῦλος δὲ αὐ [τὸν κληρ ]ο ̣ν ̣ο ̣μήσει ̣, ";a slave will be his heir";, and for the absolute use, as in Galatians 4:30, see Syll 386.8 (A.D. 120) where certain persons are described as—οὐσίας τῶν δεδαν (ε)ισ [μέ ]νω [ν κ ]ατέχοντας, οὐ φάσκοντας δὲ κληρονομεῖν. The special Biblical use of the word and its cognates, in which ";heirship"; passes over into the sense of ";sanctioned and settled possession"; (Hort ad 1 Peter 1:4), is fully illustrated by Westcott Heb. p. 167 ff. : cf. also SH p. 203 f., Dalman Words, p. 125 ff.
