Vocabulary of the Greek NT

OGIS 735.10 (ii/B.C.) ἐν τοῖς νῦν περιστᾶσι και [ροῖς, ";in present circumstances,"; as contrasted with ἔν τε τοῖς πρότερον χρόνοις mentioned just before. See also P Oxy VI. 899.14 (A.D. 200) where a woman complains of having been reduced to extreme poverty—εἰς ἔνδειά ]ν ̣ με οὐ τὴν τυχοῦσαν περιστῆναι, and ib. 902.12 (c. A.D. 465) εἰς τελείαν γὰρ ἀνατροπὴν καὶ εἰς αἰχάτην πεινεν (l. ἐσχάτην πεῖναν) περιέστην, ";I have been reduced to complete ruin and the extremity of hunger"; (Edd.) : cf. Vett. Val. p. 285.33 εἰς μεγίστας ἀτυχίας περιιστάνουσιν.

The late use of the mid. = ";turn oneself about"; to avoid, ";shun,"; c. acc., as in 2 Timothy 2:16, Titus 3:9, may perhaps be illustrated from Chrest. II. 88iv. 30 (ii/A.D.) τῆς δὲ [ ]ν ̣τίας Δρουσίλλας περιισταμένης τὴν λογο [θ ]εσίαν. Other exx. of the mid. are BGU IV. 1019.8 (mid. ii/A.D.) περι [ε ]σταμένης δ᾽ αὐτῆς, and the florilegium PSI II. 120.37 (iv/A.D. ?) μηδὲ εἰς πρᾶγμα περιίστασο ὅ σοι μὴ προσῆκε.
