Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In the version of the Lord’s Prayer which forms part of the vi/A.D. Christian amulet, BGU III. 954.23 (= Selection, p. 134), we find—ῥῦ [σαι ἡ ]μᾶς ἀπὸ τῆς πο [ν ]ηρ [ίας, in accordance with the AV interpretation of Matthew 6:13. Cf., however, the inscr. on a very old church in central Phrygia—Ἀρχάνγελε Μιχαήλ, ἐλέησον τὴν πόλι σου κ [α ]ὶ ῥύση αὐτὴν ἀπὸ τοῦ πονηρ (οῦ) (C. and B. ii. p. 741 No. 678). As exx. of the verb we may add P Lond 413.4 (c. A.D. 346) (= II. p. 301) ε [ὔχομ ]αι σ ̣[.]ω τῷ θεῷ περὶ [τῆ ]ς σ [ωτ ]ηρίας ἵνα ῥύσει σαι ἀπὸ., and the inscr. on a statue in honour of Hadrian erected A.D. 125, Syll 383 (= .3835 A).2 Αὐτοκράτορι Ἁδριανῷ σωτῆρι, ῥυσαμένῳ καὶ θρέψαντι τὴν ἑαυτοῦ Ἑλλάδα. The verb and its constructions are fully illustrated by Chase The Lord’s Prayer p. 71 ff. (in Texts and Studies i. 3), and Anz Subsidia p. 275 f.

For the subst. ῥῦσις cf. Kaibel 200.4 (Roman age) τοῦ πικροῦ ῥῦσιν ἔχω θανάτου.
