Vocabulary of the Greek NT

No example of this word in profane sources is as yet forthcoming. With its use in Sirach Prolog. 10, διὰ τῆς ἐννόμου βιώσεως as a summary of the practical aim of teachers of the law, we may compare a Jewish inscription of A.D. 60–80 in Ramsay C. and B. ii. p. 650, οὕστινας κ [αὶ ] ἡ συναγωγὴ ἐτείμησεν ὅπλῳ ἐπιχρύσῳ διά τε τὴν ἐνάρετον αὐτῶν [βί ]ωσιν καὶ τὴν π [ρ ]ὸς τὴν συναγωγὴν εὔνοιάν τε καὶ σπουδήν . For the poetic βίοτος , see the sepulchral inscription of B.C. 145–16 in Archiv i. p. 220.11 ὧι γενόμην εὔνους βίοτον διάγουσ᾽ ἅμα , 221.20 σαυτὸν μὴ τρύχειν μνησάμενον βιότου .
