Vocabulary of the Greek NT

OGIS 765.10 (iii/B.C.) τὸ θεῖον ἠσέβουγ , with external accus., as in Aeschylus Eum. 270 : the more regular construction occurs a few lines further down—εἰς τὸ θεῖον ἀσ [ε ]βοῦντα [ς ]. So Syll 190.4 (see above) τ ]οὺς ἀσεβήσαντας εἰς τὸ ἱερόγ , al. A iv/B.C. inscription in Boeotian dialect, Syll 120.3 π ]οττὼς ἀσεβίοντας τὸ ἱαρό [ν ] may be added for the accus. construction, also a late inscription from Lyttus, Syll 889.2 τῷ ἀσεβήσαντι τοὺς δαίμονας . The internal accus. appears in Syll 887 ἀσεβήσ (ει ) τὰ περὶ τοὺς θεούς , as in Judges 1:15, the only NT occurrence of the verb (according to WH).
