Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";quickly"; : P Oxy I. 116.9 (ii/A.D.) ταχέως αὐτὸν ἀπολύσατε, ";send him off quickly"; (Edd.), P Fay 126.7 (ii/iii A.D.) ἄνελθε οὖν ταχέως ὅτι ἐπίγι, ";do you therefore come back quickly, for it is pressing,"; and P Tebt II. 423.22 (early iii/A.D.) δή [λω ]σόν μοι ταχ ̣[έως, ";tell me at once"; (Edd.).

The compve. τάχ (ε)ιον is always used with an elative force in the NT, except in John 20:4 : cf. P Lond Inv. No. 1561.5 (end i/A.D.) (= Olsson Papyrusbriefe, p. 210) πρὸ μὲν παντὸς εὔχομαί σε ὐγιαίνειν καὶ τάχειον ἀπολαβεῖν, ";above all I pray that you may be in health and that I should receive you as soon as possible"; (cf. Luke 15:27), P Oxy III. 531.8 (ii/A.D.) ἐὰν γὰρ θεοὶ θέλωσι, τάχιον πρὸς σὲ ἥξω, and BGU II. 417.28 (ii/iii A.D.) τάχειον δὲ καὶ σὺ παραγένου ἐπὶ τὸ τῶν Ταυρικῶν. See further Blass Gr. pp. 33, 141 f.

The compve. ταχύτερον occurs in P Tebt II. 410.11 (A.D. 16) ἐρωτῶ σε ταχύτερον συσχεῖν τ ̣[ ] πρᾶγμα, ";I beg you to close the matter with all speed"; (Edd.), BGU II. 615.28 (ii/A.D.) δήλωσόν μ [ο ]ι ταχύτερον, and P Michigan Inv. No. 4527.8 (c. A.D. 200) σύ μοι ταχύτερον (";at once,"; Ed.) δήλωσον περὶ τῆς ἀπροσκοπίας (";well-being"; : not in LS9) σου καὶ τῆς τῶν ἀδελφῶν μου. In MGr (Naxos) ταχυτέρου is used for ";later"; (adv.) (Thumb Handbook § 123, n..2).

For τάχιστα, as in Acts 17:15, we may cite PSI IV. 360.12 (B.C. 252–1) ὡς ἂν τάχιστα λικμήσωμεν, ";in order that we may winnow (the grain) as quickly as possible,"; ib. VII. 792.10 (A.D. 136) ὡς [τ ]άχιστά μοι δηλώσατε, and P Giss I. 27.11 (ii/A.D.) (= Chrest. I. p. 29) καλῶς οὖν ποιήσεις, τει ̣μι ̣ώτατε, τάχιστά μοι δηλώσας. Cf. also the formula τὴν ταχίστην in 1 Maccabees 11:22.
