Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the meaning ";make good"; in Acts 13:33, cf. an interesting letter from Petenephiës, apparently a priest, requesting the release of certain persons that they may be able to furnish the supplies of food for the sacred crocodiles, P Tebt I. 57.13 (B.C. 114) τὰς τῶν ἱερῶν ζώιων σειταγωγίας ἐκπληρῶσαι, cf. ib. 48.12 (c. B.C. 113) μεχρὶ τοῦ τὸ προκείμενον ἐκπληρῶσαι, ";until we make up the aforesaid amount,"; and P Ryl II. 66.8 (late ii/B.C.) ἵνα καὶ αὐτὸς ἀπροφασίστως ἐκπληρῶ τὰ πρόσλ ̣ο ̣ι ̣πα, ";so that I also may make up the residues in full without excuse for failure"; (Edd.). Other examples of the verb are P Par 62v. 4 (ii/B.C.) (cited s.v. ἀναπληρόω), BGU IV. 1053ii. 18 and 1055.45 (both B.C. 13), P Oxy I 104.18 (A.D. 96) ᾧ χορηγήσει ὁ αὐτὸς υἱὸς Ἀ. κατ᾽ ἔτος ἀργυρίου δρ [α ]χμὰς τεσσαράκοντα ὀκτὼ ἄχρι οὗ ἐκπληρώσωσι ἀργυρίου δραχμαὶ τριακόσιαι, where the verb is used intransitively, unless it is a mistake for ἐκπληρωθῶσι (see Herwerden Lex. s.v. ), cf. P Tebt I. 10.7 (B.C. 119) φρόντισον ὡς τὰ τῆς ὑποσχέσεως ἐκπληρωθήσεται, ";take care that the terms of his agreement are fulfilled"; (Edd.). From the inscrr. we may cite the honorary decree of Epaminondas Syll 376.54 (i/A.D.) ἵνα τούτων οὕτως τελεσθέντων καὶ ἡ ἡμετέρα πόλις φαίνηται πᾶσαν τειμὴν καὶ εὐσέβειαν ἐκπεπληρωκυῖα εἰς τὸν τοῦ κυρίου Σεβαστοῦ [Νέρωνος οἶκον.
