Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Like the simplex, καταξιόω denotes not ";make"; but ";count worthy"; : cf. BGU IV. 1080.15 (iii/A.D. ?) σπούδασον ἡμᾶς καταξιῶσαι τῶν ἴσ [ω ]ν γραμμάτων, OGIS 201.14 (vi/AD.) εἰ μὴ κατηξίωσάν με καὶ παρακαλοῦσιν. For the pass., as in Luke 20:35, Acts 5:41, cf. P Leid Wxvi. 11 (ii/iii A.D.) κατηξιώθης τῶν πρὸς δια (= )ρθωσιν βίου μελλώ (= )ντων σοι λέγεσθαι, P Amh II. 145.4 (iv/v A.D.) βούλο ]μαι μὲν καταξιωθῆναι ἀεὶ γράφειν [τῇ σῇ ] θεοσεβείᾳ, CIA III. 690.9 f. ἀνατροφῆς τῆς αὐτῆς καταξιωθείς. In late Greek the verb is common = ";be so good as,"; ";vouchsafe,"; e.g. P Heid 6.20 (iv/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 127) παρακαλῶ καταξίωσον δέξεσθαι τὸ μικρὸν ἐλέου, P Meyer 24.4 (vi/A.D.) καταξιώσῃ οὖν ἡ σὴ θεοσέβεια εὔξασθαι ὑπὲρ ἐμοῦ. It is condemned by the Atticists, cf. Thom. Mag. 9, 7 ἀξιῶ · τὸ ἄξιον κρίνω · οὐ καταξιῶ.

For the adj. see OGIS 763.24 (ii/B.C.) τὰς καταξίας τιμὰς τοῖς εὐεργέταις ἀπονέμοντες, and for the adv. BGU IV. 1138.22 (B.C. 19) καταξίως.
