Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For πλεονεκτέω, ";take advantage of,"; ";overreach,"; which in the NT is confined to Paul, cf. P Amh II. 78.13 (A.D. 184) (see Berichtigungen, p. 3) ἐν τοῖς κοινοῖς ἡμῶν ὑ [π ]άρχουσι παντοδαπῶς μ [ου ] πλεονεκτῖ ἄνθρωπος α [ ]θα ̣δ ̣ης, ";in regard to our common property he, a self-willed man, takes all sorts of advantages over me"; : see also Aristeas 270. In late Greek, as in 1 Thessalonians 4:6, the verb is often followed by a direct object in the acc. (see Proleg. p. 65) : for the pass., as in 2 Corinthians 2:11, cf. OGIS 484.27 (ii/A.D.) πλεονεκτεῖσθαι γὰρ καὶ τοὺς ὀλίγους (qui humili condicione essent) ὑπ᾽ αὐτῶν ἀνθρώπους δ (ῆλ)ον ἦν.
