Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This word (ter in NT), which, according to Grimm-Thayer, is ";found neither in the Grk. OT nor in prof. auth.";, occurs frequently in the papyri in the literal sense of ";debt."; To Deissmann’s exx. in BS p. 221 we may add such passages as BGU IV. 1158.18 (B.C. 9) μενεῖ δὲ ἡ ὀφιλὴ ἀ [κ ]ίνδυνο (ς) παντὸ (ς) κινδύν (ου), P Oxy II. 286.18 (A.D. 82) ὑπὲρ τῆς προκειμένης ὀφειλῆς, P Fay 247 (c.

It may be noted that BGU IV. 1055.31 (B.C. 13) τὸ ἐν ο ̣̔̓φι ̣λ ̣ῇ θησόμενον, cited by Moulton Proleg. p. 161 n..2, should be read τὸ ἐνο ̣φι ̣λ ̣ηθησόμενον, and similarly ib. 1053i. 35 : cf. p Tebt I. 17.6 (B.C. 114) πάντα τὰ ἐνοφειλόμενα περὶ τὴν κώμην, ";all arrears owing from the neighbourhood"; (Edd.).
