Vocabulary of the Greek NT

λοιμός, ";pestilence,"; ";plague,"; as in Luke 21:11, occurs in P Oxy XIV. 1666.20 (iii/A.D.) ἤκουσα. . ὅτι παρ᾽ ὑμεῖν λοιμὸς [ἐγ ]ένετο, ";I heard that there has been plague in your neighbourhood"; (Edd.). For the metaph. use, as in Acts 24:5, where it is used of ";a pestilent fellow,"; (cf. Lat. pestis) there is ample support in the LXX (e.g. Psalms 1:1, 1 Maccabees 15:21). Cf. also Acts 13:8, where for the ordinary reading Ἐλύμας Burkitt (JTS iv. p. 127 ff.) conjecturally restores ὁ λοιμός. The passage then runs : ἀνθίστατο δὲ αὐτοῖς ὁ λοιμός, ὁ μάγος, οὕτως γὰρ μεθερμηνεύεται τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ, ";now they were withstood by the pestilent fellow, the sorcerer I mean, for ‘pestilent fellow’ is the interpretation of his name";—an interpretation to which Bar Yeshu’, changed into ΒΑΡΙΗΣΟΥ א, would readily lend itself.
