Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἀσεβής is found in P Tor I. 1iii. 8 (B.C. 116)(= Chrest II. p. 33) τὴν γεγενημένην μοι καταφθορὰν ὑπὸ ἀσεβῶν ἀνθρώπων , and in the magical P Lond 121.604 (iii/A.D.) (= I. p. 103). It occurs also in Syll 789.52 (iv/B.C.) ὅπ ]ως ἂ [ν ] . . . μ [ηδ ]ὲν ἀσεβὲς γένηται , and twice in OGIS 90.23, .26 (Rosetta stone, B.C. 196) τοῖς ἐπισυναχθεῖσιν εἰς αὐτὴν ἀσεβέσιν . . . τοὺς ἐν αὐτῆι ἀσεβεῖς πάντας διέφθειρεν of those who had created sedition, involving the majesty of the θεός on the throne, as Dittenberger explains. Several exx. of the adjective in Josephus are put together by Schmidt Ios. p. 357. For the adverb, see P Oxy II. 237vi. 13 (A.D. 186) ἀσεβῶς καὶ παρανόμως .
