Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For ὁρκίζω, ";adjure,"; with a double acc., as in Mark 5:7, Acts 19:13, we may cite the imprecatory tablet from Hadrumetum, written in iii/A.D. but composed not later than ii/A.D. which Deissmann reproduces in BS p. 274 ff., e.g. ὁρκίζω σε, δαιμόνιον πνεῦμα τὸ ἐνθάδε κείμενον, . . . τὸν θεὸν τοῦ Ἀβρααν κτλ., ";I adjure thee, demonic spirit, who dost rest here, by the God of Abraan,"; etc. : cf. OGIS 229.27 (B.C. 246–226) ὁρκισάτωσαν αὐτοὺς οἱ ἀποδειχθησόμενοι πρεσβευταὶ τὸν ὅρκον τὸν ἐν τῆι ὁμολογίαι γεγραμμένον. For ὁρκίζω τινά followed by κατά with gen., as in 3 Kingd 2.42, cf. the magic papyrus P Lond 121242 (iii/A.D.) (= I. p. 92) ὁρκίζω σε δαίμων κατὰ τῶν βοηθημάτων σου, al. See also s.vv. ἐνορκίζω, ἐξορκίζω. Ὁρκίζω is still used in MGr.
