Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this adj. = ";perfect,"; ";complete,"; which in the NT is confined to 1 Thessalonians 5:23 (but cf. Arist. Plant, i. 2. 20, Plut. ii. 909 B). we can now cite the decree of Epaminondas attached to Nero’s pompous declaration of the freedom of all Greeks at the Isthmian games of A.D. 67, Syll 376 (= .3814).45 ἀνεισφορίαν, ἣν οὐδεὶς τῶν πρότερον Σεβαστῶν ὁλοτελῆ ἔδωκεν, where the adj. has the same adverbial force as in 1 Thess l.c. For the adv. ὁλοτελῶς, by which Suidas defines the common ὁλοσχερῶς, cf. Aq. Deuteronomy 13:16 (17).
