Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";who?"; ";what?"; (1) Exx. of this common interrog. pron. are—P Petr II. 40a.24 (iii/B.C.) γράψατέ μοι, τί [ς παρ᾽ ὑ ]μῖν τιμὴ ἐγένετο τοῦ σίτου, P Par 44.4 (B.C. 153) τί κελεύε [ι ]ς ὑπὲρ τούτων; BGU IV. 1078.7 (A.D. 39) ὄψομαι, τί με δεῖ ποιεῖν, P Grenf I. 53.33 (iv/A.D.) τίνος εὐγενό (= ε)στερός ἐστι; and P Oxy I. 120.2 (iv/A.D.) λοιπὸν τί σοι γράψω οὐκ οἶδα.

(2) The use of τίς for ὅς, ὅστις, as in Mark 14:36, Luke 17:8, 1 Timothy 1:7, and in LXX Genesis 38:25, Leviticus 21:17, is fairly common in the papyri, e.g. BGU II. 665iii. 13 (i/A.D.) ο ]ὐκ ἔχομεν δ ̣ιὰ τίνες (l. τίνος) πέμπωμεν, P Oxy VIII. 1155.13 (A.D. 104) αὐτὸ τὸ πρόγραμ <μ >α τοῦ ἡγεμόνος ἔπενψά σοι ἵνα ἐπίγοις πρὸς τί σοί ᾽στι, ";I send you the actual proclamation of the praefect in order that you may hasten to do what concerns you"; (Ed.), ib. 1119.22 (A.D. 254) τίνα μοι ἐπέστειλαν, BGU III. 822.5 (iii/A.D.) (cited s.v. ἑλκύω), and P Lond 239.10 (c. A.D. 346) (= II. p. 297) τίνος ἐὰν χρίαν ἔχῃς. See also Mayser Gr. II. i. p. 80.

(3) Occasionally τίς Is used in the NT = πότερος, of two only (e.g. Matthew 21:31; Matthew 27:17, Luke 22:27). In the LXX it has completely displaced πότερος which, it may be noted, hardly occurs at all in the papyri (see Proleg. p. 77 n..1). In MGr τίς, τίνος, τίνα are rare : in their place the invariable τί is used (Thumb Handb. § 152).
