Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In the royal ordinance P Tebt I. 5.91 (B.C. 118) it is laid down that the measures used by revenue officers shall be tested, and that they must not exceed the government measure by more than the two [. . .] allowed for errors, τῶν εἰς τὰ παραπτώματα ἐ [π ]ικεχωρημε ̣ν ̣ω ̣[ν ̣ . . β ̄ : the editors suggest two hundredths of a χοῖνιξ. A ";slip"; or ";lapse"; rather than a wilful ";sin"; is the connotation suggested, and the same weakened sense may be found in P Lond 1917.14 (c. A.D. 330–340) where the writer speaks of a παράπτωμα διαβολικη ̣ (sic) into which he had fallen, but which, as Bell suggests, may not mean more than that he had stayed too long in the κηπολάχανον (";vegetable garden";) mentioned just before. Needless to say, we do not propose to define the word in its NT occurrences from these instances : see Field Notes, p. 160 f.
