Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";I love the chief place,"; ";I desire to be first"; (3Jn. 1:9) The instance of this verb cited by Deissmann (BS p. 178) from Blass Gr p. 68 is now stated to be erroneous (LAE2, p. 76, n..1), but we can give one or two exx. of the corresponding φιλοπονέω, ";I love labour,"; ";I am industrious";—P Oxy VII. 1069.20 (iii/A.D.) τὴν πεδείσκην μου δὲ πρὸ λόγον ἀνάγκασον φιλοπονεῖστε (l. φιλοπονεῖσθαι), and 23, ib. X. 1296.7 (a son to his father—iii/A.D.) φιλοπονοῦμεν καὶ ἀναψύχομεν, καλῶς ἡμε ̣[ ]ν ἔσ ̣τ ̣α ̣ι, ";I am industrious and take relaxation : all will be well with me"; (Edd.), and P Lond 130.5 (i/ii A.D.) (= I. p. 133), where a master of astrology, writing to his pupil, recalls that the ancient Egyptians laboriously devoted themselves to the art—γ ]νησίως τε περ [ ]τὰ αὐράνια φιλοπονήσαντες.
