Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The wavering of gender which is found in the NT ( Luke 4:25 : Luke 15:14, Acts 11:28) meets us again in the papyri—P Par 22.21 (B.C. 165) τῷ λιμῷ διαλυθῆναι, but in a document of the same collection ib. 26i. 9 (B.C. 163–2) ὑπὸ τῆς λιμοῦ διαλυόμεναι. Cf. also ib. 28.18 (B.C. 160) where, instead of the simple dat., we have διαλυόμεναι ἐν τῷ λιμῷ. Other exx. are P Petr III. 36 (a) verso .29 (Ptol.) ἀξιῶ σε δεόμενος μή με ἀπολέσηι τῶι λιμῶι ἐν τῆι φυλακῆι, ";I entreat you with prayers not to let me perish of hunger in prison"; (Edd.), and P Oxy VI. 902.9 (c. A.D. 465) ἐκ τούτου συνέβη τὸ ὑπόλοιπον τῶν ἐμῶν ζῴων τῇ λιμῷ τεθνάναι, ";in consequence of which the remainder of my kine have died of hunger"; (Edd.) : see also Crönert, p. 177. The use of the fem. is generally traced to ";Doric"; influence : cf. Lob. Phryn. p. 188 τὴν λιμὸν Δωριεῖς, σὺ δὲ ἀρσενικῶς τὸν λιμὸν φάθι, Rutherford NP, p. 274, Thumb Hellen. p. 67. The older Attic masc. is usual in the LXX, cf. Thackeray Gr. i. p. 146.

For the conjunction λοιμοὶ καὶ λιμοί in Luke 21:11 Boll Offenbarung, P. 131, compares Catal. viii. 3, 186, 1 λιμὸς καὶ λοιμὸς καὶ σφαγαὶ κατὰ τόπους : see also Test. xii. patr. Jud. xxiii. 3, Orac. Sib. viii. 175. The two words are cognate, being connected with the Homeric λοιγός and the Lat. letum.
