Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this verb = ";bear witness to,"; which is found in the NT only in 1 Peter 5:12, cf. P Leid W xxiv. 1 (ii/iii A.D.) ἐπιμαρτυροῦντος μηδενὸς κακοποιοῦ Κρόνου. The stronger form ἐπιμαρτύρομαι (cf. 1 Maccabees 2:56) occurs e.g. in P Petr II. 17 (3).11 οὐδ᾽ ἐπεμαρτύρατό με ᾽Α ";neither did A. appeal to me,"; P Grenf I. 38.15 (ii/i B.C.) περὶ ὧν (particulars of an assault) τοὺς παρόντας ἐπεμαρτυράμην, ";I called those present to witness.";
