Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the idea of ";logical proximity and immediateness"; (cf. Bäumlein Griech. Partikeln, p. 138 ff.) which underlies this word and is perhaps to be seen in 1 Corinthians 6:7 (cf. Ellicott ad l.), we may cite the common use of the adverb in magical incantations, e.g. P Par 574.1245 (iii/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 114) ἔξελθε, δαῖμον, . . . καὶ ἀπόστηθι ἀπὸ τοῦ δ (ε) (να) ἄρτι ἄρτι ἤδη, P Lond 121.873 (iii/A.D.) (= I. p. 96) ἐν [τ ]ῇ ἄρτι ὤρᾳ ἤδη ἤδη ταχὺ ταχύ : see also Deissmann BS, p. 289, Archiv i. p. 426. Other examples of the word are P Fay 109.4 (early i/A.D.) τοὺς τρεῖς στατῆρες (l. ας) οὓς εἴρηκέ σοι Σέλευκος δῶναί μοι ἤδη δὸς Κλέωνι, ";the three staters which S. told you to give me, now give to C.,"; P Ryl II. 77.46 (A.D. 192) κα [ ] ὀφείλει στεφῆναι, ἤδη γὰρ ἡ ἀρχὴ ἀδιάπτωτός ἐστιν τῇ πόλ (ει), ";and he ought to be crowned, for the office is now secured to the city"; (Edd.). For ἤδη οὖν see P Tebt II. 423.4 (early iii/A.D.) ε ̣̀μ ̣αθον εἰληφότα παρ᾽ Ἀματί [ο ]υ τὸν ἄρακα. ἤδη οὖν ὡς δι [ε ]τάγη χωρησάτω εἰς τὴν Τ ̣βεκλ ̣υ ̣̑τιν ̣ χορτάρακός τε καὶ ἄρακος μ [ο ]ν ̣α ̣χὸς ε ̣ἰς σπέρματα, ";I have learned that you have received the aracus from Amatius. Now therefore, as was ordered, let the grass-aracus and the aracus go alone to Tbeklutis for seed,"; and for ἤδη ποτέ, ";now at length,"; as in Romans 1:10 (";some near day at last,"; SH), Philippians 4:10, see the ostrakon from Thebes of A.D. 192 published in LAE, p. 186 (= Meyer Ostr 57.6) καὶ ἤδη ποτὲ δὸς τῇ ἐμῇ παιδίσκῃ τὰς τοῦ πυ (ροῦ), ";and now at length give my maid the (artabae) of wheat"; : cf. also Epict iii. 24. 9 οὐκ ἀπογαλακτίσομεν ἤδη ποθ᾽ ἑαυτούς;
