Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἄξιος appears with infin. in BGU IV. 1141.15 (B.C. 14) ἐγὼ μἐν οὺ δοκῶι ἄξιος εἶναι ὑβρίζεσθαι. For the absolute use (as Matthew 10:11; Matthew 10:13) see P Petr II. 15 (3).8 (B.C. 241–39) τοῦτο δὲ ποιήσας εὐχαριστήσεις ἡμῖν κ [αὶ ?] ἄξιος γάρ ἐστιν ὁ ἄνθρωπος ἐν χρείαι [ . . . where the editor translates, ";By doing this you will oblige us, [. .] for the man is worthy of it, [but] in need—."; The sense of ";worth,"; ";value,"; is illustrated by P Lille I. 6.9 (iii/B.C.), where a certain Petesuchos complains that robbers ἐξέδυσαν χιτῶνα ἄχιον (δραχμὰς) ς ̄ ";a tunic worth six drachmas."; So the fem. became a noun = ";value"; : BGU IV. 1118.40 (B.C. 22) πείθεσθαι περὶ τῆς τούτω ̣ν ̣ ἀξίας, ib. 1126.14 (B.C. 8) ἐκτίνιν τὴν ἑκάστου ἀξίαν πλὴν συμφανοῦς ἀπ [ωλείας ]. For ἀξίως τοῦ θεοῦ (as in 1 Thessalonians 2:12, 3 John 1:6 etc.) see Deissmann BS p. 248 f., who shows that ";the formula was a very popular one in Pergamus (and doubtless also in other localities)."; He cites five inscrr., as Perg I. 248.7 ff. (ii/B.C.), where Athenaios, a priest of Dionysios and Sabazius, is extolled as συ [ν ]τετελεκότος τὰ ἱερὰ. . . εὐσεβῶς [μ ]ὲγ καὶ ἀξίως τοῦ θεοῦ. We may add Magn 33.30 (Gounos in Thessaly, iii/B.C.) ἀξίως [τ ] [ς ] θ [ε ]ᾶς, ib. 85.10 f. (Tralles) ἀξίως τῆς τε Ἀρτέμιδος. . . καὶ [τοῦ ] . . δήμου, and Priene 119.15 (end of i/B.C.) πομπεύσας τῇ προστάτιδι τῆς ] πόλεως Ἀθηνᾶι τῆς θεᾶς ἀξί [ως ]. So P Petr II. 13 (19).4 (c. B.C. 252) (= Witkowski,.2 p. 18) οὐ ] μὴν οὐδὲν ἐμοὶ [ἔσται με ]ῖζον ἢ σοῦ προστατῆσα [ι τὸν ] [π ]ίλοιπον βίον, ἀξίως [μὲ ]ν σοῦ, ἀξίως δ᾽ ἐμοῦ, where the dependent gen. is neither divine nor a community, but has the dignity characteristic of the pietas of this charming letter. A combination may be seen in the letter of Aline to her husband, P Giss I. 20.24 (ii/A.D.), following the citation under ἀξιόω below, ι ̣̓́να ἀξίως σοῦ καὶ τῶν θεῶν ἀόκνως προσέλθῃ. The word survives in MGr.
