Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Preisigke 1046 (i/A.D.) Σεραπίων ἥκω πρὸς Σέραπι (ν) πατέρ (α) illustrates a common formula. Of greater importance is the use of the verb in relation to worship, as in John 6:37, in such a passage as OGIS 186.7 (B.C. 62) ἥκω πρὸς τὴν κ [υ ]ρίαν Ἶσιν : see Deissmann LAE, p. 356 n.6. The aor. ἧξα, as in Revelation 2:25, may be cited from P Oxy VI. 933.13 (late ii/A.D.) . . . μεγ ̣[ ]λην ἑορτὴν ἧ ̣ξ ̣α, ";I came to the great festival,"; and for the use of the perf. form owing to the perf. meaning, as ἥκασιν in Mark 8:3 אADN, cf. P Par 48.9 (B.C. 153) (= Witkowski, 2 p. 91) ἥκαμεν εἰς τὸ Σεραπιεῖον βολάμενοι συνμῖξαί σοι, P Grenf II, 36.18 (B.C. 95) καλῶς ἡμῖν ὧδε ἢ ἐν Διοσπόλει ἐὰν αἱρῆσθε πυρὸν ἀγοράσαι ἥκατε, also P Par 35.30 (B.C163) ἀπεκρίθησαν ἡμῖν φήσαντες ἐπ᾽ ἐνεχυρασίαν ἡκένα [ι : see further Mayser Gr. p. 372. For other instances of the verb it is sufficient to quote ib. 49.27 (B.C. 164–158) διὰ τοῦτο οὐκέτι ἥκει πρὸς ἐμὲ αἰσχυνθείς, P Oxy III. 531.8 (ii/A.D.) ἐὰν γὰρ θεοὶ θέλωσι τάχιον πρὸς σε ἥξω μετὰ τὸν Μεχεὶρ μῆνα, ib. VII. 1025.10 (late iii/A.D.) ἐξαυτῆς ἥκετε, ";come at once,"; and ib. X. 1252 recto .30 (A.D. 288–95) προσέταξεν. . . ἥκειν μετὰ τῶν ἀποδειξέων, ";gave orders to come with the proofs."; See also the striking invitation to celebrate the accession of Hadrian, P Giss I. 3.2 (A.D. 117) (= Chrest. l. p. 571), where the god Phoebus is represented as saying—

ἥκω σοι, ὦ δῆμ [ε,

οὐκ ἄγνωστος Φοῖβος θεὸς ἄνα -

κτα καινὸν Ἁδριανὸν ἀγγελῶ [ν.
