Vocabulary of the Greek NT

An instance of this word, which in the NT is confined to 2 Peter 2:7; 2 Peter 3:17, may be quoted from the late P Oxy I. 129.7 (vi/A.D.) where a man breaks off the engagement of his daughter to a certain Phoebammon, because it had come to his ears that the latter was giving himself over to ";lawless"; deeds—ἀκηκοέναι σε παρεμβάλλοντα ἑαυτὸν ἐν τοῖς αὐτοῖς ἀθέσμοις πράγμασιν.
