Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἐπαγγέλλομαι = ";promise,"; as in Hebrews 10:23; Hebrews 11:11, may be illustrated by P Petr I. 29.12 (iii/B.C.) (= Witkowski.2, p. 31) ἐχρησάμην δὲ καὶ παρὰ Δύνεως ἀρτάβας δ ̄ κριθοπύρων αὐτοῦ ἐπαγγελομένου καὶ φιλοτίμου ὄντος, P Tebt II. 411.9 (ii/A.D.) εἰ μὴ ἐπηγγειλάμην σήμερόν σε παρέσασθαι, ";had I not promised that you would be present to-day,"; P Oxy I. 71i. 8 (A.D. 303) ἅπερ διὰ τῶν αὐτῶν γραμματίων ἐπηγγίλατο ἀποδώσειν ἄνευ δίκης κτλ. Ramsay (Exp VII. viii. p. 19) draws attention to the use of the verb in 1 Timothy 6:21 where it is applied to ";volunteers, who set up as teachers with the intention to make a business and a means of livelihood out of the Word of God,"; and notes its application ";to candidates for municipal favours and votes in the Greek cities, who publicly announced what they intended to do for the general benefit, if they gained popular support";—cf. Cagnat IV. 766 (Mossyna in Phrygia—A.D. 80–100) (= C. and B. i. p. 146) τὰ δὲ λοιπὰ οἱ ἐπανγειλάμενοι καθὼς ὑπογέγραπται —the names of the promisers being appended. The verb is also a kind of term. tech. in the inscrr. for the announcement of public sacrifices, e. g. Syll 258.39 (iii/B.C.) τοῖς ἐπαγγέλλοσι τὰν θυσίαν καὶ ἐκεχηρίαν τᾶς Ἀρτέμιδος : cf. 1 Timothy 2:10 and Philo de Human. 1 (= II. p. 384 ed. Mangey) ἐπαγγέλλεται θεοῦ θεραπείαν.
