Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With this NT ἅπ. εἰρ. (1 Corinthians 16:7), cf. PSI IV. 354.8 (B.C. 254–3) ἐστὶν δὲ ἐν παρόδωι. See also OGIS 544.19 (ii/A.D.) ἐν τῆι τῶν ὄχλων παρόδωι, with Dittenberger’s note. The LXX use of the word ";passer-by,"; ";traveller"; (e.g. 2 Kings 12:4 [MT 2 Samuel 12:4]), is found in an epigram of the Imperial period cited by Deissmann LAE p. 296, where an old man Chrysogonus is represented as

παντὶ λέγων παρό -

δω · πεῖνε, βλέπις

τὸ τέλος,

";saying to each passer-by, ‘Drink, for thou seest the end’";.

Cf. also Kaibel 236.9 f. (ii/i B.C.)—

μᾶλλον δὲ κλαύσας, πάροδε, τὴν ἐμὴν τύχην

βαῖν᾽ οὗ φίλον σοι καὶ τύχοις ὅσων θέλεις,

";rather having bewailed, passer-by, my fate, go where it is pleasant for you, and may you obtain all that you wish!";

In an account of early ii/A.D. , P Amh II. 126.54, there are included παροδίων (δραχμαὶ) ρ ̄, and in P Lond 318.2 (A.D. 156–7), 330.5 (A.D. 164) (= II. p. 87 f.) παρόδιον (not in LS8) is understood by the editor as ";a pass or permit to travel."; For the adj. παρόδιος cf. P Tebt I. 45.22 (B.C. 113) τὴν παρόδιον θύραν, ";the street door,"; and so ib. 47.14, and for the verb παροδεύω (as in Sap 1:8) see Kaibel 810.11—

μή με μάτην, ξεῖνοι, παροδεύετε, γειτνιόωσαν

πόντῳ καὶ Νύμφαις Κύπριδα καὶ Βρομίωι,

i.e. subsistite viatores fruituri quae ab mari, ab fonte, a Baccho vobis bona parata sunt (Ed.).
