Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A good ex. of the metaphorical use of πλαστός, ";made up,"; ";feigned,"; in 2 Peter 2:3 is afforded by P Oxy II. 237viii. 14 (A.D. 186) μὴ παραυτίκα πλαστὰ εἶναι τὰ γράμματα ε ̣ι ̣̔̓π ̣ών, ";not having immediately declared that the contract is forged"; : cf. Musonius p. 41.16 πλαστοὶ καὶ οὐκ ἀληθινοὶ φίλοι. The more literal sense is seen in P Oxy IV. 729.30 (A.D. 137) τὴν ἐντὸς πλαστῶν χερσάμπε [λον, ";the vineyard enclosed by a mud wall"; (Edd.). For subst. πλάστης cf. P Giss I. 31ii. 17 (end ii/A.D.).
