Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Like some others of its class, δέομαι tends in the Κοινή to let its uncontracted forms set the model of its flexion : hence δέεται and the like. See Proleg. p. 54 f., Thackeray Gr. i. p. 243. Δέομαι is very common both in original and derived meanings, to have a need and to express it. (Cf. on δέησις above). For the former cf. P Giss I. 7.15 (Hadrian) τοιούτου ὄντος τοῦ βάρους καὶ τῆς σῆς χρηστότητος δεομένου , P Flor I. 6.16 (A.D. 210) δ [εό ]μεθα πλείονος χρόνου εἰς τὴν συντελείωσιν , ib. II. 154.9 (A.D. 268) καὶ εἴ τι δέονται ἔχειν ὑμῶν , καὶ τοῦτο δήλωσον , Michel 206.3 (mid. ii/B.C.) τοῖς ἀεὶ δεομένοις χρείας , ";those in need,"; P Oxy VI. 896.6 (A.D. 316) τὴν σύνοψιν τῶν δεομένων τόπων ζωγραφιάς , ";an inspection of the places requiring painting"; (Edd.). Some of these passages show the verb already half way towards the expression of need. For this cf. P Petr II. 45i. 16 (B.C. 246) δεη [θ ]έντων μηθέν , BGU I. 361ii. 20 (A.D. 184) ἐδεήθη αὐτοῦ ταύτην [sc. διαθήκην ] ἔχειν παρ᾽ ἑαυτῷ : as in earlier Greek, there is no passive sense attached to any of the forms. The verb has a regular use in petitions addressed to ruling sovereigns, as distinguished from those addressed to magistrates, to whom ἀξιῶ ";claim"; (see s.v.) was used as appropriately as δέομαι ";entreat"; to the former. Thus P Par 26.38 (B.C. 163–2) (= Selections, p. 17) δεόμεθα οὖν ὑμῶν . . . ἀποστεῖλαι ἡμῶν τὴν ἔντευξιν ἐπὶ Διονύσιον , P Lond 45.26 (B.C. 160–59) (= I. p. 36) δέομαι ὑμῶν ἀποστεῖλαι μου τὴν ἔντευξιν ἐπὶ Κυδίαν —both petitions addressed to King Ptolemy and Queen Cleopatra. See further Laqueur Quaestiones, p. 3 ff. In P Tebt II. 315.4 (ii/A.D.) ἕτερα γράμ [ματα δι᾽ ὧν σου ἐδεόμην περὶ [τῶν Πύ ]ρρου [ ]ματίων ̓ϛ ̣̄ . . ὅπως μοι [πέμψῃς ] ὅσου [ ]ὰν ᾖ , ";telling you to send them to me at any cost"; (Edd.), entreaty has developed into demand—a still stronger ";expression of need."; In Wünsch AF 5.22 (iii/A.D.) (= Deissmann BS, p. 276) ἀγαγεῖν καὶ ζεῦξαι σύμβιον τὸν Οὐρβανὸν . . πρὸς τὴν Δομιτιανὰν . . ἐρῶντα καὶ δεόμενον αὐτῆς , we may fairly render ";wooing.";
