Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Amh II. 131.6 (early ii/A.D.) a brother writes to his sister with reference to the management of certain family property, stating that he will remain where he is until he learns that all is safely settled, and adding—ἐλπίζω δὲ θεῶν θελόντων ἐκ τῶν λαλουμένων διαφεύξεσθαι καὶ μετὰ τὴν πεντεκαιδεκάτην ἀναπλεύσειν, ";but I hope, if the gods will, to escape from the talking and after the fifteenth to return home."; See also P Oxy I. 119.5 (ii/iii A.D.) (= Selections, p. 103) where the naughty boy writes to his father—ἢ οὐ θέλις ἀπενέκκειν μετ᾽ ἐσοῦ εἰς Ἀλεξανδρίαν, οὐ μὴ γράψω σε ἐπιστολήν, οὔτε λαλῶ σε, οὔτε υἱγένω σε εἶτα, ";if you refuse to take me along with you to Alexandria, I won’t write you a letter, or speak to you, or wish you health henceforth,"; P Fay 126.4 (ii/iii A.D.) ἤκουσα φίλου τοῦ πατρός μου λαλοῦντος περὶ σοῦ ὅτι πεμψεν (l. ἔπεμψεν) ἐπὶ τὴν πενθερά (l. ράν) σου χάριν τοῦ κτήματος, ";I heard a friend of my father’s saying about you that be had sent a message to your mother-in-law about the farm"; (Edd.), BGU III. 822.18 (iii/A.D.) ἵνα εὕρωμεν καὶ ἡμῖς εὔλογον λαλῆσαι αὐτῇ, γράψον Κουπανηο ̣ῦτι ἐπιστολήν, and the magic P Lond 121.174 (iii/A.D) (= I. p. 89) a recipe against old women’s garrulity—γραῦν μὴ τὰ πολλὰ λα [λ ]εῖν. This last papyrus shows also the subst. λάλημα (LXX), .661 (= I. p. 105) φίλτρον ἐπὶ λαλήματος κατὰ φίλων. The above exx. all bear out the usual distinction that, while λέγω calls attention to the substance of what is said, the onomatopoetic λαλέω points rather to the outward utterance : cf. McLellan Gospels, p. 383 ff. and Milligan’s note on 1 Thessalonians 1:8. With λαλέω, ";I make known by speaking"; with the further idea of extolling, as in Matthew 26:13 al., cf. the inscr. with reference to a mother and brother—ὧν καὶ ἡ σωφροσύνη κατὰ τὸν κόσμον λελάληται (Archiv v. p. 169, No. 24.8). MGr λαλῶ (-έω), ";speak.";
