Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Leid Wxii. 31 (ii/iii A.D.) (= II. p. 123) ὁ δὲ θεὸς ἔφη · πάντα κεινήσεις (l. κινήσεις) , καὶ πάντα ἱλαρυνθήσεται, Ἑρμοῦ σε ὁδηγοῦντος. With the use of the verb in John 16:13 we may compare from the hermetic literature Hermes (ed. Parthey) p. 81.12 εἰς δὲ τὴν εὐσεβῆ ψυχὴν ὁ νοῦς ἐμβὰς ὁδηγεῖ αὐτὴν ἐπὶ τὸ τῆς γνώσεως φῶς : cf. the oracular Kaibel 1041.1 νῦν τοι πάντα τελεῖ δαίμων, νῦν ἐς ὀρθ [ ]ν ὁδηγεῖ. See also Test. xii. patr. Judges 1:19 ἡ φιλαργυρία πρὸς εἰδωλολατρείαν ὁδηγεῖ. For the form ὁδαγέω, which occurs sporadically, see Moulton Gr. ii. p. 71.
