Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The older form of this word was ἱερεωσύνη (from ἱερεύς), e.g. OGIS 56.23 (B.C. 237) τὴν ἱερεωσύνην τῶν Εὐεργετῶν θεῶν, see Dittenberger’s note and cf. Mayser Gr. pp. 15, 154. For ἱερωσύνη = ";the priestly office,"; as in Hebrews 7:11 al. cf. Priene 174.2 (ii/B.C.) ἐπὶ τοῖσδε πωλοῦμεν τὴν ἱε ̣ρ ̣ω ̣σύνην τοῦ Διονυσίου τοῦ Φλέου, ib. 205.2 (iii/A.D.) ἔλαχε τὴν ἱερωσύν [ην ] Ἀναξίδημος Ἀπολλων [ίου, Michel 704.15 (ii/B.C.) ἐπρίατο τὴν ἱερωσύνην Τίμ [αιος, ib. 977.13 (B.C. 298–7) τὴν ἱερωσύνην ἀξίως ἱερεώσατο τοῦ θεοῦ, ib. 981.7 (B.C. 219–8) καλῶς καὶ εὐσεβῶς τὴν ἱερωσύνην ἐξήγαγεν. See also s.v. ἱερατεία, and for the abstract suffix—σύνη see s.v. ἀγαθωσύνη.
