Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The Pauline use of this verb in connexion with a will in Galatians 3:15 may be illustrated from the occurrence of διατάσσεσθαι, διάταξις, etc., in inscrr. from Asia Minor with the specialized meaning of ";determine by testamentary disposition"; : see W. Judeich Altertümer von Hierapolis, p. 110, cited by Deissmann LAE, p. 87 n.5.
