Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";heavenly,"; is seen in P Eud 24.3 (before B.C. 165) οὐράνια διδασκαλέα, and in P Thead 49.3 (A.D. 307–324?) ἰς γνῶσιν τῆς οὐρανίου αὐτοῦ π ̣ρ ̣[ο ]μηθείας [ ]φῖκται. In both these instances it is an adj. of two terminations as in Luke 2:13 στρατιᾶς οὐρανίου (but subst. οὐρανοῦ in B* D*), and Acts 26:19 τῇ οὐρανίῳ ὀπτασίᾳ. The fem. in –α, as in class. Greek, is restored by the editor in PSI I. 86.3 (A.D. 367–375) ὁμολ [ογῶ ὀμνὺς τὴν θεί ]αν καὶ οὐραν ̣ι ̣[αν τύ ]χην κτλ. The adj. is naturally common in the magic papyri, e.g. P Lond 46.166 (iv/A.D.) (= I. p. 70) πᾶς δαίμων οὐράνιος καὶ αἰθέριος καὶ ἐπίγειος καὶ ὑπόγειος : cf. also the horoscope ib. 130.4 (i/ii A.D.) (= I. p. 133), where a master of astrology urges his pupil to be very exact in the application of the rules which the ancient Egyptians had discovered and handed down with such care—τ ]ῶν Αὶγυπτίων οἱ τὸ παλαιὸν ἄ [νδρ ]ες γενόμενοι [γ ]νησίως τὰ περ [ ] τὰ οὐράνια φιλοπονήσαντες. . . ἀπέλειπον τὴν περὶ αὐτῶν γνῶσιν, and the imprecation Wünsch AF p.17.22 (iii/A.D.) ὁρκίζω σε τὸν θεὸν τὸν τῶν οὐρανίων στερεωμάτων (cf. Genesis 1:8) δεσπόζοντα Ἰάω ιβοηα.
