Vocabulary of the Greek NT

(1) ";burden,"; ";load"; : P Oxy VII. 1049.3 (account of transportlate ii/A.D.) ὄνο (ι)`q φο (ρτία) η ̄, ";9 donkeys, 8 loads"; (see the editor’s note). (2) ";freight,"; ";cargo,"; as in Act. 27:10 (TR φόρτος) : P Oxy VIII. 1153.9 (i/A.D.) payment by Heraclas the boatman (ὁ ναυτικός) of 600 drachmae (ὑπὲρ) τῶν φορτίων αὐτοῦ, ";for his freights,"; P Lond 948.7 (A.D. 236) (= III. p. 220), the shipmaster is to receive 100 drachmae for freightage, 40 paid in advance and the remaining 60 on the safe delivery of the cargo—ἅπερ φορτία παραδώσει σῷα καὶ ἀκακούργητα. The hitherto rare form φόρετρον is found =";freight"; in P Petr II. 30 (a).13 (Ptol.), P Ryl II. 209.5, .24, (early iii/A.D.), P Oxy XII. 1589.18 (early iv/A.D.), and numerous exx. in Preisigke III. Index p. 341, and the new verb φορετρίζω in P Oxy VII. 1069.16 (iii/A.D.), and ib. XII. 1589.16 (early iv/A.D.).

(5) The word is used metaph., as in Mat. 11:30, al, in P Oxy XVI. 1874.7 (vi/A.D.), a Christian letter of condolence, in which reference is made to to, τὰ τριάντα πέντε φορτία, ";the thirty-five burdens,"; apparently a proverbial expression (see the editors’ note).
