Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With μεμψίμοιροι, ";complainers,"; in Judges 1:16, cf. the querulosi of Assumption of Moses vii. 7, occurring in a passage which seems largely to have influenced Jude’s language (see James’ Second Peter and Jude p. xlv. (in CGT)). The word is found in the sense of ";censorious,"; in Vett. Val. p. 17.12, where it is joined with κολαστικός For ἀμεμψιμοίρητος, ";blameless,"; see P Par 63viii. 14 (B.C. 164) δικαίως [πολι ]τευσάμενος ἐμαυτὸν ἀμεμψιμοίρητον παρέσχημαι, and Cagnat IV. 288.8 (mid. ii/B.C. ?) ἀμεμψιμοίρητ [ος δὲ ] ἐν πᾶσιν γεγενημένος, and for the adverb see P Ryl II. 154.19 (a contract of marriage—A.D. 66) ἥ τε Θαισάριον καὶ ὁ Χα [ι ]ρήμων ἀμεμψιμοιρήτως καθότι π ̣[ρότ ]ε ̣ρο ̣ν ̣ [συ ]νεβίουν. Teles p. 56.2 (ed. Hense) unites ἀπερίεργος and ἀμεμψίμοιρος. The verb μεμψιμοιρέω is found from the time of Polybius, e.g. xviii. 31. 7.
