Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The adj. is common. Thus P Grenf. I. 11ii. 3 (B.C. 157) τούτου δὲ γενομένου καὶ ἀπερίσπαστος ὢν δυνήσομαι ἀπροφασίστως εἰς τὸ βασιλικὸν τὰ ἐκφόρια ἀπομετρῆσαι. P Oxy II. 286.17 (A.D. 82) ὅπως παρέχωνται ἡμᾶς ἀπερισπάστους [καὶ ] ἀπαρενοχλήτους ὑπὲρ τῆς προκειμένης ὀφειλῆς καὶ ἀποδώσειν ταῦτα, ";in order that they may secure us against any liability or trouble in connexion with the aforesaid debt, and may repay it"; (Edd.). In P Oxy VI. 898.15 (A.D. 123) ὑποθέσθαι ὅσα ἔχω ἐν τῇ Ὀάσε ̣[ι ] κτήματα [λα ]βόντα τοῦ Διοσκόρο [υ ] γράμματα ἀπερ [ισπ ]άστου, the editors translate ";to mortgage all my property in the Oasis in return for a deed of release received from Dioscorus,"; and explain γράμματα ἀπερισπάστου as a deed of indemnification, distinguished by the formula ἀπερίσπαστον παρέξεσθαι or some equivalent phrase. In l. 18 of this same papyrus the deed is called ἡ ἀπερίσπαστος simply. The development of meaning is exactly like that of our ";security,"; in the commercial sense. Other examples of the word are P Rein 18.40 (B.C. 108), BGU IV. 1057.22 (Aug.), P Lond 932.9 (A.D. 211) (= III. p. 149), and P Amh II. 101.10 (early iii/A.D.), etc.
