Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";hard,"; ";difficult,"; : cf. P Oxy X. 1242.36 (early iii/A.D.), an account of an audience granted by Trajan to certain Greek and Jewish envoys from Alexandria, when the Emperor does not return the salute of the Alexandrian envoys but exclaims—χαιρετίζετέ με ὡς ἄξειοι τυγχάνοντ [ες ] τοῦ χαίρειν, τοιαῦτα χαλεπὰ τολμήσαντε [ς ] Ἰουδαίοις; ";do you give me greeting like men deserving to receive one, when you are guilty of such outrages to the Jews?"; (Edd.) : see also Syll 356 (=.3 780).31 (c. B.C. 6) αὐτοῖς ἐδόξ [ατε ] χαλεποὶ γεγονέναι, where the adj. = ";harsh,"; ";fierce,"; as in Mat. 8:28.
