Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Early examples of this verb are afforded by P Petr III. 42 I.5 (iii/B.C.) εἰμὶ γὰρ πρὸς τῶι ἀποδημεῖν, ";for I am on the point of departure"; (Edd.), and P Par 46.8 (B.C. 153) ἐνκατελελοίπει με ἀποδημήσας. An antithesis which verbally resembles 2 Corinthians 5:9 may be seen in P Tebt I. 104.17 (B.C. 92) ἐνδημῶν καὶ ἀποδημῶν, in a marriage contract : similarly BGU I. 183.7 (A.D. 85), P. Giss I. 2i. 19 (B.C. 173), and cf. P Par 69 (iii/A.D.) where the arrivals and departures of a strategus are recorded in his day-book by ἐπι - and ἀποδημέω respectively (cf. Archiv iv. p. 374) On P CattV. 20 (ii/A.D.) (= Chrest. II. p. 422) ἐὰν γένηταί με ἀποδημεῖν, P. M. Meyer observes (Archiv iii. p. 84) that the verb is the antithesis of ἐνδημεῖν, as especially in marriage contracts. Add P Oxy I. 44.18 (late i/A.D.) ἀποδημοῦντός σου, ";in your absence,"; ib. II. 326.7 (c. A.D. 45) οὐκ ἔλαβον ἀργύριον παρὰ [τῶν πρ ]οπόλων ἀφ᾽ οὗ ἀπεδήμη [σα ], ib. III. 471.8 (ii/A.D.) ἀποδη [μοῦντ ]ες ἠγνοήσατε τὰς [π ]ερὶ τούτων γεγραμμένας ὑμ [εῖ ]ν ἐπιστολάς, P Tebt II. 333.7 (A.D. 216) τοῦ πατρός μου. . . ἀποδημήσαντος. . . πρὸς κυνηγίαν λαγοῶν, ";my father set off to hunt hares,"; and P Amh II. 145.16 (iv/v A.D.) ]λυπήθην διότι ἀπεδήμησας ἀλόγως, ";I am grieved because you went away without cause"; (Edd.). In Syll 633.13 (Rom.) ἐὰν δέ τινα ἀνθρώπινα πάσχῃ ἢ ἀσθενήσῃ ἢ ἀποδημήσῃ που gives us a good combination. For the subst. cf. P Oxy III. 471.134 (ii/A.D.) τάς τε ἀποδημίας, P Tebt II. 330.3 (ii/A.D.) ἐμοῦ ἐν ἀποδημίᾳ ὄντος, and P Giss I. 41ii. 3 (Hadrian) ὑπὸ τ ̣ ̣ς ̣μακρᾶς ἀποδημίας τὰ ἡμέτε [ρα ] πα [ντ ]α ̣πασιν ἀμεληθέντα τυγχ [άνει ].
