Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Lond 21.11 (B.C. 162) (= I. p. 13) σὺ δὲ ὢν πρὸς τὸ θεῖον ὁσίως διακείμενος καὶ οὐ βουλόμενος παραβῆναί τι τῶν ἐν τῶι ἱερῶι ἐπηγγελμένων. The combination with δικαίως, as in 1 Thessalonians 2:10, is common, e.g. P Par 63viii. 13 (B.C. 164) where the writer claims—ἐγὼ γὰρ πιστεύσας σοί τε καὶ τοῖς θεοῖς, πρὸς οὓς ὁσίως καὶ. . δικαίως [πολι ]τευσάμενος ἐμαυτὸν ἀμεμψιμοίρητον παρέσχημαι, and, from the inscrr., Priene 46.12 (i/B.C.) εὐ ̣σ ̣[ε ]β ̣ω ̣̑[ς μὲν πρὸς τοὺς πατρίους ] θεούς, ὁσίως δὲ καὶ δικαίως π ̣[ρὸς τοὺς ἀνθρώπους. See further Apol. Arist. xv. sub finem, and for the combination with ἀμέμπτως Clem. R. Cor. xliv. 4.
