Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This Heb. word = ";hosts,"; ";armies"; (Romans 9:29 LXX, James 5:4) occurs as an invocation in the great Paris magical papyrus P Par 574.1235 (iii/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 113) Ιαω Σαβαωθ, and in the amulet printed in Archiv i. p. 427 belonging to iii–v A.D.—

Κύριε Σαβαώθ, ἀπόστρεψον

ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ. οτον (?) νόσον τῆς

κεφαλ [ῆς

where Wilcken thinks that it cannot be determined with certainty whether it is the work of a Christian or a Jew or a Greek or an Egyptian. Cf. P Oxy VIII. 1152.2 (v/vi A.D.) with its magical, Jewish, and Christian elements—

Ωρωρ φωρ ἐλωεί,

ἀδωναεί, Ἰαὼ σα -

βαώθ, Μιχαήλ, Ἰεσοῦ

Χριστέ, βοήθι ἡμῖν

καὶ τούτῳ οἴκῳ. -

μήν.

and ib. VII. 1060.4 (vi/A.D.), a Gnostic charm against reptiles and other ills—

Ἰαὼ σαβαὼθ ἀδονὲ. . . .

ἀπάλλαξον τὸν οἶκον τοῦτον

ἀπὸ παντὸς κακοῦ ἑρπετοῦ.

Also the leaden tablet, Wünsch AF No. 2 (ii/iii A.D.), on which is depicted an altar inscribed—Σε ̣ω ̣θη | Σαβαωθ | Σαβαωθ, the thrice repeated name of the Jewish God. See further Deissmann Urgeschichte p. 23, and Cheyne’s note on ";Lord Sabaoth"; in Exp III. i. p. 318f.
