Vocabulary of the Greek NT

On the difference between the Biblical ";declaration of blessedness"; (Romans 4:6, Galatians 4:15) and the ordinary Greek and Latin gratulatory expressions see Norden Agonostos Theos, p. 100 f. , the monograph De veterum macarismis by G. L. Dirichlet in Religionsgeschichtlichc Versuche und Vorarbeiten xiv. 4 (Giessen, 1914), and W. M. Ramsay CR xxxiii. p. 6, where it is pointed out that μακάριος, as distinguished from μακαρίτης, tended to become characteristically Christian. See also Stob. Flor. T. I. 72 γίνεται δ᾽ ὁ μὲν ἔπαινος ἐπ᾽ ἀρετᾷ, ὁ δὲ μακαρισμὸς ἐπ᾽ εὐτυχίᾳ (cited by Field Notes, p. 154). The verbal μακαριστός occurs ter in the rescript of Antiochus I., OGIS 383.16 .39, .108 (mid. i/B.C.).
