Vocabulary of the Greek NT

συνχαίρω, generally in the NT = ";rejoice with"; : cf. P Lond 43.3 (ii/B.C.) (= I. p. 48, UPZ i. p. 635), where a mother writes to her son, πυνθανομένη μανθάνειν σε Αἰγύπτια γράμματα συνεχάρην σοι καὶ ἐμαυτῆι, ";having ascertained that you are learning the Egyptian script, I rejoiced for you and for myself,"; and Syll 807 (= .3 1173).5 (after A.D. 138) ὀρθὸν ἀνέβλεψε τοῦ δήμου παρεστῶτος καὶ συνχαιρομένου, which the editor describes as ";medii vel passivi usus barbarus,"; but cites the simplex in Aristoph. Pax 291 ὡς ἥδομαι καὶ χαίρομαι κεὐφραίνομαι, and ib..10 ἐσώθη καὶ δημοσίᾳ ηὐχαρίστησεν τῷ θεῷ καὶ ὁ δῆμος συνεχάρη αὐτῷ. See also Proleg. p. 161, and Hatzidakis Gr. p. 200.

For the sense of ";congratulate,"; which Lightfoot gives the verb in Philippians 2:17 f, we may cite the ironical P Tebt II. 424.5 (late iii/A.D.) εἰ μὲν ἐπιμένι (= ει)ς σου τῇ ἀπονοίᾳ, συνχέ (= αί)ρω σοι, ";if you persist in your folly, I congratulate you"; (Edd.). Similarly EGU IV. 1080.2 (iii/A.D.) (= Chrest. I. p. 564), where a father congratulates his son on his happy marriage, ἀσπάζομαί σε συνχαίρων ἐπὶ τῇ ὑπαρχθείσῃ σοι ἀγαθῇ [ ]σ ̣ευβεῖ (l. εὐσεβεῖ) καὶ εὐτυχῇ (l. εὐτυχεῖ) [σ ]υμβιώσι.
