Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this verb, which is found in the NT only in 1 Corinthians 3:19, where it is substituted for the less vivid καταλαμβάνων of the LXX Job 5:13, cf. P Oxy X. 1298.10 (iv/A.D.) σὲ γὰρ μόνον ἔχω μάρτυρα πῶς ὁ Γοῦνθος δραξάμενός μου —";laid hands on me."; An otherwise unknown active is doubtfully restored in P Lond 1170 verso.113 (A.D. 258–9) (= III. p. 196) ὁμοί (ως) δ [ρά ]ττοντες χόρτον ἐν τῷ α ̄ κλήρ (). For the constr. with the acc. in the NT passage see Proleg. p. 65. For the subst. δράγμα = ";handful,"; then ";sheaf,"; as Genesis 37:7, Ruth 2:7, cf. P Fay 120.9 (c. A.D. 100) θέρισον τὸν ὤ [γ ]μ ̣ον τῆς Ἀπιάδος καὶ λύσις εὐθέω εἰς Ἀ. [. .] τὰ δράγματα, ";reap the field at Apias and let the sheaves go off immediately to A. ."; (Edd.). From a series of farm-accounts, P Fay 102 (c. A.D. 105), it appears that the wages paid to workmen were coupled with accounts of γόμοι and δράγμ (ατα) of wheat and barley : see the editors’ introduction, and cf. P Cairo Preis 44.8 (ii/iii A.D.), where a payment is made εἰς δράγμα χόρτ ̣ου. The compounds δραγματηγεία and δραγματηγέω are found P Flor II. 185.5, .17 (A.D. 254), and in P Petr III. 28 verso (b ).6 (B.C. 260) we have ἐδραγματοκλέπτει, ";stole sheaves in gleaning.";
