Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Lond 357.8 (A.D. 14–5) (= II. p. 166) ]ρπάσαι τὰ ἐπιβάλλοντα. OGIS 665.18 (A.D. 49) ὅτι ἀναλίσκεταί τινα ἁρπαζόντων ἀδεῶς τῶν ἐπὶ ταῖς χρείαις. In P Par 68.8 f. (a document relating to the Jewish war of Trajan, ii/A.D.) we have τινὰς ἐπὶ κωστωδίαν ἥρπασαν καὶ [τοὺς ἁρπασθέντ ]ας ἐτραυμάτισαν : cf. BGU I. 341.3 which deals with the same events, ἐκ κωστω ]δίας ἥρπασαν. In l. .12 of the last papyrus ἡρπάγησαν is the true reading : see Berichtigungen p. 359. A common use may be illustrated by the petition BGU III. 759.23 (A.D. 125) ὅπως παραστήσω [σ ]ι τοὺς αἰτ [ίους καὶ ] ̣π ̣ο ̣τ ̣είσωσι τὰ ἡρπασμένα. According to Wilcken (Archiv i. p. 164) the verb is to be understood causatively in P Lond 408.11 (c. A.D. 346) (= II. p. 284) ἥρπαξας αὐτοὺς ὡς ἐν ἀνομίᾳ, ";du hast sie plündern lassen."; On this general tendency, cf. Hatzidakis Einl. p. 200 f. For ἁρπάζω, used of death, see the epitaph in BCH xxvii. p. 370, no. 101, ὑπὸ σκορπίου ἡρπά [σθ ]η. The compound ἀφαρπάζω is found P Oxy I. 37i. 17 (A.D. 49) τὸ σωμάτιον ἀφήρπασεν, ";carried the foundling off,"; P Strass I, 5.15 (A.D. 262) τὰ τετ ̣ρ ̣άπο ̣δ ̣α τα ̣̣ ἡμέτερα ἀφήρπα ̣σ [α ]ν, and often in petitions complaining of robbery. For the double conjugation of this and similar verbs—due to the fact that both dental and guttural before -γω will make -ζω —see Proleg. p. 56. The verb survives in MGr.
