Vocabulary of the Greek NT

PSI III. 184.7 (notice of a fire—A.D. 292) χθὲς περὶ ἕκτην ὥραν ἐξαίφνης καύματος ἐνόντος πῦρ ἐν σκυβάλοις χόρτου. . . ̣ν ̣ε ̣φάν [η. In P Oxy VI. 903.6 (iv/A.D.) a wife amongst other charges against her husband alleges—πῦρ προσήνεγκεν ταῖς τροφίμαις μου γυμνώσας αὐ [τὰ ]ς παντελῶς ἃ οὐ ποιοῦσι οἱ νόμοι, ";he applied fire to my foster-daughters, having stripped them quite naked, which is contrary to the laws"; (Edd.).

With τὸ πῦρ τὸ αἰώνιον (Matthew 18:8 : cf. Dalman Words, p. 161) we may compare the magical papyrus P Lond 46.147 (iv/A.D.) (= I. p. 70) where the enchanter, to impress the evil powers he desires to overcome, declares—ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ ἀκέφαλος δαίμων, ἐν τοῖς ποσὶν ἔχων τὴν ὅρασιν, ἰσχυρός, τὸ πῦρ τὸ ἀθάνατον, ";I am the headless demon, having eyes in my feet, the strong one, the deathless fire"; : cf. Deissmann LAE p. 139. For the ";fire of love"; see P Leid Wvii. 40 (ii/iii A.D.) (=II. p. 105) ἐξορκίζω σε, πῦρ, δαίμων αἴρωτος ἁγείου (l. ἔρωτος ἁγίου), and P Osl I. 1.140 (iv/A.D.), with the editor’s note (p. 65). With Revelation 8:7 cf. Orac. Sib. v. 376 f. πῦρ γὰρ ἀπ᾽ οὐρανίων δαπέδων βρέξει. . πῦρ καὶ αἷμα, and for Romans 12:20 see Exp T xxxvi. p. 478.
