Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A corresponding verb μακροψυχέω, not found in LS, occurs in the (probably Christian) letter PSI IV. 299.11 (iii/A.D.) μακροψ [ ]χ ̣[ει ] οὖν, ἀδελφή, ἄχρεις οὗ ἄν με θεὸς εὐοδώσῃ [πρὸς ] ὑμᾶς, ";have patience, therefore, sister, until God shall give me a successful journey to you."; For an interesting note on the translation of μακροθυμεῖ in Luke 18:7, ";is it His way to delay in giving them help?"; see Exp T xxv. p. 71 n..6, and cf. Field Notes, p. 72. The verb is found in Plutarch, and belongs to the common vocabulary of late Greek : see Deissmann LAE, p. 72.
