Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";envy"; : cf. P Ryl II. 144.21 (A.D. 38) ἔτι δὲ καὶ ἐτόλμησεν πθόνους (l. φθόνου) μοι ἐπαγαγεῖν αἰτίας τοῦ μὴ ὄντος, ";moreover he had the audacity to bring baseless accusations of malice against me"; (Edd.), P Oxy II. 237vi. 21 (A.D. 186) ἐπὶ φθ ̣όνῳ μο ̣ν ̣ο ̣ν ̣ [λο ]ιδορούμενος, ";but malice was the root of his abuse"; (Edd. : but see their note ad l.), ib. III. 533.14 (ii/iii A.D.) [ν ]α μὴ ἔχωμεν στομάχου [ς ] ηδὲ φθόνον, ";that we may not be caused vexation and annoyance"; (Edd.), P Thead 14.34 (iv/A.D.) οὐδὲν βεβάστακτα · ονιοι φθόνῳ περὶ κλ ̣η ̣ι ̣δ ̣ι ̣ο ̣υ ̣ κατα [γουεύουσι ̣ν, ";nothing has been taken. These accuse us from jealousy."; Hort (Jas. p. 93 f.) thinks that the difficult πρὸς φθόονον in Jas. 4:5 must be understood as = ";jealously"; or ";with jealousy"; (cf. the RV marginal renderings) : see also the elaborate note in the Revue Biblique xii. (1915), p. 35 ff., and for a suggestion to read φόνον for θόνον, see J. A. Findlay in Exp T xxxvii. (1926), p. 381 f. For Phil I.15 the commentators cite by way of illustration the comic poet Philemon. (Meineke iv. p. 55) πολλά με διδάσκεις ἀφθόνως διὰ φθόνον.
