Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With θυσίαν δεκτήν in Philippians 4:18 Nägeli (p. 61) compares the sacred inscription of the Lycian Xanthos in ii/A.D. = Syll 633.8 ἐὰν δέ τις βιάσηται , ἀπρόσδεκτος ἡ θυσία παρὰ τοῦ θεοῦ . The adj. is very common in the LXX in a sacrificial sense. Grimm can quote nothing outside LXX till c. A.D. 300 (Jamblichus); but such a verbal could hardly be branded as coined, even if there were no parallels. It came into LXX vocabulary just because it was taken to represent a Hebrew term successfully.
