Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This strong verb, which is found in the NT only in Acts 16:29, may be illustrated by P Oxy I. 37i. 16 (A.D. 49) (= Selections, p. 50) εἰσεπήδησεν εἰς τὴν τοῦ ἡμετέρου [ο ]ἰκίαν καὶ τὸ σωμάτιον ἀφήρπασεν, ";burst into my client’s house and carried off the foundling,"; ib. VIII. 1120.14 (early iii/A.D.) εἰσεπήδησεν εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν μου καὶ ἐτόλμησεν ἀποσπάσαι δούλην μου, and P Tebt II. 304.10 (A.D. 167–8) μετὰ ξύλων ἰσπηδῆσαι, ";rush in with staves."; See also Syll 190.9 (B.C. 306–281) εἰσ ]πηδήσαντας νύκτωρ ἐπ᾽ ἀδικίαι [καὶ ] ἀσεβείαι τοῦ ἱεροῦ. A new literary citation (Menandrea, p. 54.219) shows a close parallel to the absolute use in Acts 16:29, and well illustrates the ";violent"; connotation of the verb—οὑτοσὶ μελαγχολᾷ. εἰσπεπήδηκεν.
