Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The original meaning of this adj. was ";hard,"; as in BGU III. 952.10 (ii/iii A.D.) τι ]μῆς μαρμάρου ξηροῦ σκλ [ηροῦ, and from the inscrr. Syll 540 (=.3972).96 (B.C. 175), which speaks of the working and building of the ";hard"; stone from Lebadeia, πέ ]τρας σκληρᾶς : so OGIS 194.28 (B.C. 42) ἐκ σκληροῦ λίθου. But in this last inscr. .14 σκληροτέρας καὶ [μείζονος συμφορᾶς τοῦ ἀέρος describes (with some doubt from hiatus) a pestilent miasma in the atmosphere. See also P Cairo Zen II. 59275.9 (B.C. 251) σκ ]ληρὰ κρέα, ";bitter (or pickled) meats."; BGU I. 140.14 (time of Hadrian) τ ]οῦτο οὐκ ἐδόκει σκληρὸν [εἶ ]ναι shows the metaph. sense which prevails in the NT : cf. Kaibel 942.2 (i/B.C.) θερμὸν πνεῦμα φέρων σκληρᾶς παῖς ἀπὸ πυγμαχίας, and Aristeas 289 where kings are described as ἀνήμεροί τε καὶ σκληροί, ";inhuman and harsh."; For σκληρουργός, ";a mason,"; cf. P Ryl II. 410 (ii/A.D.), BGU III. 952.6 (ii/iii A.D.). For the history of σκληρός see an elaborate note by Dieterich in Rheinisches Museum N.F. lx. (1905). P. 236 ff.
