Vocabulary of the Greek NT

νήφω is found along with ἁγνεύω to mark the proper state 01 intending worshippers in Syll 790 (= .3 1157).41 (c. B.C. 100) ἁγνεύοντες καὶ νήφοντες : cf. ib. 564.1 (ii/B.C.) ἀπ᾽ οἴνου μὴ προσιέναι. For the metaphorical application, as in 1 Thessalonians 5:6; 1 Thessalonians 5:8 al., see Aristeas 209 where νήφειν τὸ πλεῖον μέρος τοῦ βίου, ";to be sober for the greater part of one’s life,"; is laid down as one of the qualities of a ruler, and the exx. in Hort’s note ad 1 Peter 1:18. See also BGU III. 1011iii. 9 (ii/B.C.) ν ̣η ̣ϕ ̣[ει ]ν ἀναγκ [αζέσθ ]ω, and P Oxy VII. 1062.13 (ii/A.D.) αυ ̣̓[τ ]ὴν δέ σοι τὴν ἐπιστολὴν πέμψω διὰ Σύρου ἵνα αὐτὴν ἀναγνοῖς νήφων καὶ σαυτοῦ καταγνοῖς, ";I will send you the very letter by Syrus in order that you may read it in a sober mood and be self-condemned"; (Ed.). For the compound ἐννήφω, see M. Anton, i. 16. 9.
