Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ὁρίζω in its primary sense of ";divide,"; ";separate from,"; is well seen in OGIS 335.112 (ii/i B.C.) εἰ ]ς τὴν ὁδὸν τὴν ὁρίζουσαν [τ ]ήν τε Πιταναίαν καὶ [τὴν. . . . . . : cf. P Fay 126.6 (ii/iii A.D.) ἐπὶ μέλι (l. μέλλει) ὁρίζεσθαι, ";since the boundaries (of a piece of land) are to be fixed"; (Edd.). From this it is an easy transition to ";fix a limit to,"; ";set apart,"; as in Acts 11:29 (cf. Field Notes, p. 119). The verb is construed with an acc. of time, as in Hebrews 4:7, in P Flor I. 61.45 (A.D. 85) (as amended Chrest. II. p. 89) ἡγεμόνες πεν [τ ]αετίαν ὥρισαν περὶ τοῦ πολυχρον [ ]ων : cf. Aristeas 157. For the pass. of what has been appointed, decreed, as in Luke 22:22, cf. P Par 63.92 (B.C. 164) (= P Petr III. p. 26) τοῦ διὰ τοῦ προστάγματος ὡρισμένου κε [φ ]αλαίου, ";the assessment defined in the decree"; (Mahaffy), P Lond 1168.13 (A.D. 18) (= III. p. 136) μετὰ τὴν ὡρισμένην ἀπόδοσιν. Similarly of time, P Fay 11.16 (c. B.C. 115) ἐν τοῖς διὰ τῶν συμβολαίω [ν ] ὁρισθεῖσιν χρόνοις, ";within the periods fixed by the contracts"; (Edd.), P Amh II. 50.15 (B.C. 106) ἐν τῶι ὡρισμένωι χρόνωι, P Tebt II. 327.12 (late ii/A.D.) μετὰ τὸν [ ]ρισμένον χρόνον τῆς [ ]πιτηρήσεως, ";after the appointed term of his office"; (Edd.). For the subst. ὁρισμός, ";boundary,"; cf. BGU II. 599.2 (ii/A.D.) ἕως ὁρισμοῦ καρπῶν, ib. IV. 1091.25 (A.D. 212–3) (φόρου) τ [ο ]ῦ δι᾽ ἐπισ ̣[κέ ]ψεως ὁρισ ̣μοῦ φα [ι ]νομένου, P Amh II. 97.11 (A.D. 180–192), where certain properties are set forth as—γίτονες καθὼς διὰ τῆς τοῦ ὁρισμοῦ πορείας δηλοῦ [τ ]αι νότου καὶ λιβὸς οἰκόπ (εδα) Εὐνοίδια λεγόμ (ενα), ";adjoined, as is set forth in the survey, on the south and west by the plots called Eunoidia"; (Edd.), and the introd. to P Strass I. 31. Note the curious use of the word in Exodus 8:12 περὶ τοῦ ὁρισμοῦ τῶν β ̣ατράχων, ";about the limitation of the frogs (to the river)."; In MGr ὁρισμός = ";order,"; ";command,"; cf. ὁρισμός σου φιρμάνι, ";thy order is an imperial decree (firman).";
