Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the sense ";haughtiness,"; ";arrogance,"; as in Mark 7:22, cf. Aristeas 262 πῶς ἂν μὴ τραπείη τις εἰς ὑπερηφανίαν; ";how should one keep oneself from pride?";, and ib. 269. The verb is similarly used in P Flor III. 367.12 (iii/A.D.) πλούτῳ γαυρωθεὶς [καὶ ] πολλῇ χρημάτων περιουσίᾳ ὑπ [ερη ]φανεῖς τοὺς φίλους, but has a weakened sense in P Oxy XIV. 1676.16 (iii/A.D.) ἀλλὰ πάντως κρείττονα εἶχες · διὰ τοῦτο ὑπερηφάνηκας ἡμᾶς, ";but you doubtless had better things to do; that was why you neglected us"; (Edd.). See also the intrans. use of the verb in BGU I. 48.19 (iii/A.D.) ἐὰν ἀναβῇς τῃ ἑορτῇ, ἵνα ὁμόσε γενώμεθα, καὶ μὴ ὑπερηφανήσῃς.
