Vocabulary of the Greek NT

λογισμός in its primary sense of ";reckoning,"; ";computation"; is seen in BGU IV. 1074.15 (A.D. 275) in connexion with the payment of a tax—ἀποδεδωκότα κατὰ τὸν λογισμὸν τὸν βασιλικὸν ἐντάγιον πᾶν. . . : cf. P Oxy VI. 940.4 (v/A.D.) καταξίωσον ἐπέχειν τοῦ λογισμοῦ, ";please to delay the account-taking"; (Edd.). For a more general sense see Michel 976.9 (B.C. 300) καλῶς καὶ δικαίως ἐπεμ [ε ]λήθη τῶν κοινῶν πάντων καὶ τοὺς λογισμοὺς ἀπέδωκεν ὀρθ [ ]ς καὶ δικαίως, and as showing how the meaning ";thought,"; ";reasoning,"; led to ";judgment,"; ";decision,"; as in Romans 2:15, 2 Corinthians 10:5 cf. P Oxy XII. 1503.16 (A.D. 288–9) ἕτοιμος λογισμοὺς παρέχει [ν —reports in connexion with a trial, and OGIS 5.56 (B.C. 311) ἀν [θ ]ρωπίνωι λογισμῶι, ";human calculation."; See also Test. xii. patr. Gad vi. 2 τὸ πνεῦμα τοῦ μίσους ἐσκότιζέ μου τὸν νοῦν, καὶ ἐτάρασσέ μου τὸν λογισμὸν πρὸς τὸ ἀνελεῖν αὐτόν. The word is used in a bad sense = cupido in Vett. Val. pp. 49.8 πρὸς τὰς τῶν λογισμῶν ἐπιθυμίας, 173.11 καταθύμιος λογισμῶν συντέλεια.
