Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Par 63i. 27 (B.C. 164) (= P Petrie III. p. 20) a complaint is made that certain people left in their homes are harassed—τῶν πρὸς ταῖς ̣ πραγματείαις οὐ κατὰ τὸ βέλτιστον ἐγδεχομένων τὸν τοῦ περὶ τῆς γεωργίας προστάγματος νοῦν, ";because the officials do not put the best interpretation on the meaning of the decree concerning agriculture"; (Mahaffy). For the wider meaning ";thought,"; ";mind,"; cf. P Tebt II. 334 (A.D. 200–1), a curious petition in which a woman complains that she has been robbed and deserted by her husband, and adds—.8 f. ἐξ οὗ καὶ παι (l. ἐπαι)δο [ποιησάμην πα ]ιδία δύο, μ [ ] ε ̣̀χουσα κατὰ νοῦν ἄλλον, ";I have also had two children by him and have no thought of another man (?)"; (Edd.). Cf. also P Oxy XIV. 1665.27 (iii/A.D.) ἐρρῶσθαί σε εὔχομαι κατὰ νοῦ (l. νοῦν) διάγοντα, ";I pray for your health and success"; (Edd.). The dat. νόῳ is found in BGU II. 385.5 (ii/iii A.D.) ἐν νόῳ ἔχῃς ὅτι ἡ θυγά [τ ]ηρ μου ἰς Ἀλεξάνδρειαν ἔσσι (l. εἶσι ?) and the acc. νόον in Preisigke 287.5 ]ταν ἦλθεν ὑπὸ νόον τινός. On the declension of the word see Moulton Gr. ii. pp. 127, 142, Winer–Schmiedel Gr. p. 84, and cf. Thumb Handbook, § 63 n..2 for the forms in MGr, which also (ib. p. 343) shows such phrases as ἔρχεται στὸ νοῦ μου, ";it occurs to me,"; and χάνω τὸ νοῦ μου, ";lose my reason."; For νοῦς denoting the being of God cf. Epict. ii. 8. 2 τίς οὖν οὐσία θεοῦ; . . . νοῦς, ἐπιστήμη, λόγος ὀρθός.
