Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The wide sense attaching to this verb with its corresponding subst. in late Greek is fully illustrated from Polybius by Dean Armitage Robinson on Ephesians 1:10. We may add a few citations from the papyri. In PSI VI. 584.17 (iii/B.C.) Agesilaus writes to Zeno asking him to ";make arrangements";for the transport of certain quantities of barley and wheat in order that he may receive them—εἰ δύνη <ι > οὖν μοι αὐτὰς οἰκονομήσασθ ̣α ̣ι ἵν [α ] α ̣ὐτὰς ἀπεν ̣ένκωμαι : cf. ib. 597.8 (iii/B.C.) καλῶς ποιήσεις. . . οἰκονομησάμενος περὶ τῆς εἰσόδου, and BGU IV. 1209.19 (B.C. 23) τοῖς ὑφ᾽ ἡμῶν οἰκονομηθησομένοις. In P Eleph 9.5 (B.C. 223–22) an official summons a subordinate to appear before him bringing with him all his writings and official documents—κομίζων [π ]α ̣ντα τὰ γράμματα καὶ [εἴ τι ἄλ ]λ ̣ο ̣ ὠικονόμηκ [ας ] κ ̣αὶ ὧν ̣ πεποίησαι δ ̣ι ̣αγραφῶν τὰ ἀντίγραφα, and in P Oxy IX. 1203.27 (late i/A.D.) certain petitioners ask that their positions should be communicated to the collector of external debts in order that he ";may take no step against us . . before the trial of the case"; (Ed.)—μηδὲν καθ᾽ ἡμῶν οἰκονομήσῃ μέχρι κρίσεως. In P Petr II. 11 (2).2 (mid. iii/B.C.) (= Witkowski.2, p. 6) the verb is used for the administration of a sacred office or priesthood, γίνωσκέ με τὴν ἱεροποΐαν ὠικονομημέ [νον, and in ib. 38 (c).60 (iii/B.C.) of the management of the details in some matter relating apparently to cowherds—περὶ βούτων ὃν ἂν [τρό ]πον οἰκονομήθ [ηι. See also Preisigke 3925.5 (ii/B.C.) τὰ πρὸς τ [ὴν ] κατάστασιν δικαιώματα καὶ ὃ [ν ] ἂν τρόπον οἰκονομήσαμεν.
