Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In the NT confined to the Pastorals, but quotable from iii/B.C.. Thus Syll 239.3 (B.C. 214) εἴπερ οὖν ἐγεγόνει τοῦτο , ἠστοχήκεισαν οἱ συνβουλεύσαντες ὑμῖν καὶ τοῦ συμφέροντος τῆι πατρίδι καὶ τῆς ἐμῆς κρίσεως , and P Par 35.26 (B.C. 163) ἀστοχήσαντες τοῦ καλῶς ἔχοντος —a close parallel to 1 Timothy 1:6. (For the gen. constr. cf. also Sirach 7:19.) From a later date we may quote the ill-spelt BGU II. 531ii. 19 (ii/A.D.) ἐὰν δὲ ἀστοχήσῃς [αἰω ]ν ̣ίαν μοι λοίπην (l. λύπην ) [π ]αρέχιν μέλλις , where the meaning seems to be ";fail"; or ";forget";. This the verb retains in MGr : so the Klepht ballad in Abbott’s Songs, p. 34.

Μὴν ἀστοχᾷς τὴν ὁρμηνεία , τῆς γυναικὸς τὰ λόγια ,

Forget not thy wife’s advice, forget not her words.

From the literary side we may quote P Oxy II. 219 (a).21 (i/A.D.), where in extravagant terms a man bewails the loss of a pet fighting-cock, ψυχομαχῶν , ὁ γὰρ ἀ [λ ]έκτωρ ἠστόχηκε , ";I am distraught, for my cock has failed me"; (Edd.), and the adverb in the philosophical P Fay 337 (ii/A.D.) δεῖ τῶν [ἀν ]θρώπων ἄρχειν [τῶν ] πράξεων ἐκεί [νου ]ς δὲ εὐθὺς ἐφέπεσθαι , οὐκ ἀτάκτως μέντοι ἀλλ᾽ εἱμα [ρ ]μέ [νως ]. τοῦ γὰρ ἀστόχως [ . . .
