Vocabulary of the Greek NT

κατοικέω, in the general sense of ";dwell in,"; ";inhabit,"; is found in such passages as P Fay 98.14 (A.D. 123) τὰ ἐνοίκια. . ἧς κατοικῖ αὐτῶν κοινωνικῆς ο [ἰκίας ] ἐν κώμῃ Εὐημερείᾳ, ";the rent of the house at Euhemeria jointly owned by them at which she lives"; (Edd.), P Oxy VIII. 1102.12 (c. A.D. 146) ὁ τοῦ νομ ]οῦ στρατηγὸς ἀκρειβέστερον ἐξετάσει ᾗ κατοι ̣κ ̣ι ̣ͅ, ";the strategus of the nome shall hold a more exact inquiry in the place where he lives"; (Ed.). More technically used, the verb refers to the permanent ";residents"; of a town or village, as distinguished from those ";dwelling as strangers"; or ";sojourners"; (παροικοῦντες) : cf. Genesis 37:1. See further Hohlwein L’Égypte Romaine, p. 35.1 f., Jouguet Vie municifale, p. 57 f.
