Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In a private letter of the time of Augustus the writer remarks κἀγὼ τὴ [ς ] φιλίαν σου [θ ̣ε ̣λ ̣ω ̣ι ̣] ἄμεμπτ [ον ] ἐματὸν ἐτήρησα (BGU IV. 114125). For the adjective in a marriage contract see CPR I. 2713 (A.D. 190) αὐτῆς δὲ τῆς Θ . ἄμεμπτον καὶ ἀκατηγόρη [τον ἑαυτὴν παρ ]εχομένην (sic). It is common in sepulchral epitaphs in conjunction with χρηστός . OGIS 4439 (i/B.C.) has τήν τε τῶν . . . νεανίσκων ἐνδημίαν εὔτ [ακτ ]ον π [αρέχεται καὶ ἄμεμπ ]τον —Dittenberger’s supplement is at least plausible. For the adverb see P Giss I. 985 (ii/A.D.) τὰ τέσσερα οὖν κολοφώνια τὰ ἐπιβάλλοντά μοι δότε αὐτῇ ἀμέμπτως , ἀλλ᾽ ἐν τάχει , P Lond 9246 (A.D. 187–8) (= III. p. 134) . πληρουμένων —little more than ";duly paid,"; P Oxy III. 4734 (A.D. 138–60), ib. 4968 (A.D. 127) συμβιούτωσαν οὖν ἀλλή [λο ]ις ἀμέμπτω [ς οἱ γ ]αμοῦντες , and IV. 72410 (A.D. 155), a contract of apprenticeship to a shorthand writer, where provision is made that the pupil shall be taught not only to write fluently, but to read what he has written ἀμέμπτως . From the inscriptions cf. OGIS 48513 f. τὰς λοιπὰς δὲ φιλοτειμίας τελιάσαντα ἁγνῶς καὶ ἀμέμπτως .
