Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The usage of this word in 1 Timothy 2:1; 1 Timothy 4:5, is readily explained by its constant recurrence in the papyri and inscriptions as a kind of ";vox sollemnis"; for a ";petition"; of any kind : cf. Deissmann BS pp. 121, 146, Laqueur Quaestiones, p. 8. Thus in the Ptolemaic papyri it is constantly used of any writing addressed to the King, e.g. in P Par 26.5 (B.C. 163–2) (= Selections, p. 13) the Serapeum Twins remind Ptolemy Philometor and Cleopatra II.—ἐνετύχομεν, καὶ ἐπεδώκαμεν ἔντευξιν : cf. P Amh II. 33.21 (c. B.C. 157), a petition from five cultivators of domain lands to the same Royalties—δεόμεθ᾽ ὑμῶν τῶν μεγίστων θεῶν εἰ ὑμῖν δοκεῖ ἀποστεῖλαι ἡμῶν τὴν ἔντευξιν ἐπὶ τοὺς αὐτοὺς χρηματιστάς, P Fay 12.26 (to Cleopatra III. and Ptolemy Alexander—B.C. 103) δέομαι ἐπιστεῖλαί μου τὴν ἔντευξιν ἐπὶ τοὺς ἀ ̣ποτεταγμένους τῆι κατοικίᾳ χρηματιστάς. In Roman times the word occurs, but rarely, of petitions addressed to the Strategus, e.g. P Flor I. 55.18 (A.D. 88) τ ̣ ̣ δ ̣ιὰ τῆς ἐν ̣τεύξεως δεδηλωμε ̣ν ̣α, ib. 56.9 (A.D. 234) : see further Mitteis Papyruskunde, p. 13 ff., and the editor’s note to P Hamb I. 29.16. For ἐντυχία = ";intercession,"; ";petition,"; as in 3 Maccabees 6:40, cf. P Lond 44.26 (B.C. 161) (= I. p. 34) τὸν τὴν ἐντυχίαν ποιησόμενον, and for a new subst. παράτευξις see P Amh I. 3(a)iii. 22 quoted under παρατυγχάνω.
