Vocabulary of the Greek NT

in the participle is common = ";set forth,"; ";aforesaid,"; e.g. P Lond 44.10 (B.C. 161) (= I. p. 34, UPZ i. p. 140) τυγχάνω ἐν τῆι κατοχῆι γεγονὼς τὰ προκείμενα ἔτη, P Tebt II. 294.8 f. (A.D. 146) β [ούλομα ]ι ὠνήσασθαι τὴν τοῦ προκιμένου ἱεροῦ προφη [τ ]εία [ν ] εἰς π [ρ ]ᾶσιν π [ρ ]οκιμένην ἔτι πάλαι, ";I wish to purchase the office of prophet in the aforesaid temple which has been for a long time offered for sale"; (Edd.), ib. 293.23 (c. A.D. 187) ὤμοσα τὸν προκείμενον ὅρκον κ [α ]θὼς πρόκειται, ";I have sworn the above oath as aforesaid"; (Edd.), and the Gnostic charm P Oxy XII. 1478.4 (iii/iv A.D.) δὸς νείκην. . . τῷ προκειμένῳ Σαραπάμμωνι, ";give victory to the aforesaid Sarapammon"; : cf. also the letter regarding funeral expenses P Grenf II. 77.28 (iii/iv A.D.) (= Selections, p. 121) μισθοῦ ὡς πρόκ (ειται)(δραχμαι) τ ̄μ ̄, ";cost (for the transport of the body) as set forth above 340 drachmae.";

Πρόκειμαι passes readily into the meaning ";am present,"; ";am there,"; as in 2 Corinthians 8:12 : ct. P Lond 1201.2 (B.C. 161) (= III. p. 4) διὰ τῆς προκειμένης συγγραφῆς, and P Oxy II. 255.17 (A.D. 48) (= Selections, p. 47) τὴ [ν π ]ροκειμένην [γρα ]φήν —with reference to a census.
