Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The ceremonial usage of this Hellenistic verb is illustrated by Deissmann BS p. 216 f., where reference is made to the Mystery inscription of Andania, Syll 653.87 (B.C. 93 or 91) ἀναγραψάντω δὲ καὶ ἀφ᾽ ὧν δεῖ καθαρίζειν καὶ ἃ μὴ δεῖ ἔχοντας εἰσπορεύεσθαι, and to ib. 633.3 (ii/A.D.) already cited s.v. ἀκάθαρτος sub fin., both of which show the construction with ἀπό as e.g. in 2 Corinthians 7:1, Hebrews 9:14. The word is used in connexion with plants in P Lond 131 recto.192 (accounts—A.D. 78–9) (= I. p. 175) καθαρίζ (ων) [τῶν ] νεοφύτ (ων) τοῦ χω (ρίου) τὰ περισσ () βλαστήματα, and ib. 131 *.83 (A.D. 78) (= I. p. 191) : see also P Strass I. 2.11 (A.D. 217) τοῦ σοῦ καθαρίζοντος καὶ μετροῦντος with reference to the ";cleansing"; of wheat, and P Lips I. 111.12 (iv/A.D.) καθαρίσομεν τὸ γεώργι [ο ]ν. In the iv/v A.D. BGU IV. 1024iv. 16 we have νὴ γὰρ Δία, ἦν τὰ κοσμήματα τὰ τῶν νόμων, ἦν ὑπὸ τῆς πόλ [ε ]ως ἦν δεδομένα τῶι νεκρῷ, ἦν κεκ [αθα ]ρισμένα. On the forms of the verb see Reinhold, p. 38 f., Moulton Gr. ii. §§ 33, 95.
