Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this verb in its original meaning cf. P Leid W vi. 25 (ii/iii A.D.) ἐπιλέγων τὸ ὄνομα, ";insuper pronuntians nomen."; The sense of ";choose,"; as in Acts 15:40, appears in P Petr II. 40(a).16 (iii/B.C.) (= Witkowski.2, p. 41) καὶ οἱ [κ ]υνηγοὶ ἐπιλελεγμένοι εἰ [σὶν οἱ ] μέλ [λο ]ντες παραγενέσθ [αι με ]τὰ τοῦ στρατηγοῦ, P Hib I. 78.12 (B.C. 244–3) ἐὰν ἐκ τοῦ Ὀξυρυγ [χ ]ίτου ἐπιλέγωνται, ";if people are being chosen from the Oxyrhynchite nome,"; P Oxy IX. 1210.4 (i/B.C.—i/A.D.) ἐπιλελεγμένων ὑπὸ τῶν γονέων εἰς γηροβοσκίαν ἀφ᾽ ὧν ἔχουσι υἱῶν, ";men chosen by the parents from their sons to support them in old age"; (Ed.). See also OGIS 383.70 (mid. i/B.C.) θεραπείαν τε ἀνέγλειπτον καὶ ἱερεῖς ἐπιλέξας σὺν πρεπούσαις ἐσθῆσι Περσικῶι γένει κατέστησα, and for ἐπίλεκτος, which is fairly frequent in the LXX, cf. ib. 48.14 (iii/B.C.) εἶτα ] καὶ ἐψηφίσαν [το ] ἐξ ἐπιλέκτων ἀνδρῶν τὴν βουλὴν [καὶ τὰ ] δικαστή [ρια αἱρεῖσ ]θαι, and P Par 63.21, .196 (B.C. 165) with reference to ";picked"; troops.
