Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";prudence"; leading to right action, as compared with the more theoretical σοφία : cf. Eph. 1:8, See further Lightfoot ad Col. 1:9, and Notes p. 317 f., also OGIS 332.25 (B.C. 138–2) ἀρετῆς ἕνεκεν καὶ φρονήσεως τῆς συναυξούσης τὰ πρά [γμα ]τα, and Wünsch AF, p. 6.1 (i/ii A.D.) ψ [υ ]χὴν [δι ]άνοιαν φρόνησιν αἴσθησιν ζοὴν [καρδ ]ίαν.

In the trimeter PSI IV. 280 (iv/v A.D.) φρόνησις is contrasted with τύχη

ὅστις νομίζει διὰ φρόνησιν εὐτυχεῖν

μάταιός ἐστι · πάντα γὰρ τὰ τοῦ βίο ̣υ ̣

οὐ διὰ φρόνη [σ ]ιν, διὰ τύχην δὲ γείνεται.

For a subst. φρονιμότης see ib. I.94.2 (ii/A.D.) ἐξαιτ ̣[εῖ ?]τ ̣αι δέ με πλέον ἡ φρονιμότης αὐτ [ο ]ῦ πρὸς τὸ μαρτυρῆσαι ὑμεῖν τὴν φιλανθρωπίαν μου.
