Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ὁλόκληρος is common of material or physical soundness and completeness, e.g. P Lond 935.7 (A.D. 216 or 217) (= III. p. 30) ὁλοκλήρου οἰκίας, P Oxy I. 57.13 (iii/A.D.) ὑπὲρ τοῦ ὁλόκληρον (ποιῆσαι) τὴν ἐπίσκεψιν τῶν χωμάτων καὶ διωρύχων, ";towards the completion of the survey of the dykes and canals"; (Edd.), ib. XIV. 1772.3 (late iii/A.D.) μεθ᾽ ὧν εὔχομαί σε ὁλόκληρον ἀπολαβεῖν, and from the inscrr. OGIS 519.14 (c. A.D. 245) χωρίον ὑμέτερόν ἐσμεν ἱερώτατ [ον καὶ ὡσπερεὶ δῆ ]μος ὁλόκληρος. An interesting parallel to 1 Thessalonians 5:23 is afforded by the magic P Lond 121.590 (iii/A.D.) (=1. p. 103) διαφύλασσέ μου τὸ σῶμα τὴν ψυχὴν ὁλόκληρον : cf. Epict. iv. i. 151 ἔτι τιμῶ τὸ σωμάτιον, ὁλόκληρον αὐτὸ ἔχειν ἀντὶ πολλοῦ ποιοῦμαι, ";I still pay regard to my body, I set a great value on keeping it whole"; (cited by Sharp, p. 54). The Biblical use is discussed by Milligan, Thess. P. 78. MGr ὁλάκερος has lost the second λ through dissimilation (Thumb, Handbook, p. 23).
