Liddell-Scott-Jones Definitions

κληρονομ-ία, ἡ,

1. inheritance, Isoc. 19.43, etc.; ἡ κ. κατὰ τὴν ἀγχιστείαν inheritance as heir-at-law, D. 43.3; κ. μὴκατὰδόσιν, ἀλλὰκατὰ γένος Arist. Pol. 1309a23: metaph., εἰλήφασι τὴν τοῦ ὀνόματος κ. αἱ σωματικαὶ ἡδοναί have taken possession of.., Id. EN 1153b33.

2. property, possession, ἀνέζευξεν ἕκαστος εἰς τὴν κ. αὐτοῦ LXX Ju. 16.21(25), cf. 1 Maccabees 2:56; 1 Maccabees 6:24.

Thayer's Expanded Definition
 κληρονομία, κληρονομίας, (κληρονόμος), the Sept. time and again for נַחֲלָה, several times for יְרֵשָׁה, מורָשָׁה, etc.;

1. an inheritance, property received (or to be received) by inheritance, ( Isocrates, Demosthenes, Aristotle): Matthew 21:38; Mark 12:7; Luke 12:13; Luke 20:14.

2. what is given to one as a possession ((cf. English inheritance); see κληρονομέω, 2): διδόναι τί τίνι κληρονομίαν, Acts 7:5; λαμβάνειν τί εἰς κληρονομίαν, Hebrews 11:8 ((cf. Aristotle, eth. Nic. 7,14, p. 1153b, 33)). Agreeably to the O. T. usage, which employs נַחֲלָה now of the portion of the holy land allotted to each of the several tribes ( Joshua 13:23,28, etc.), now of the whole territory given to Israel for a possession ( Deuteronomy 4:38; Deuteronomy 15:4, etc. — and nothing appeared to the Israelites more desirable than the quiet, prosperous, permanent possession of this land, see κληρονομέω, 2), the noun κληρονομία, lifted to a loftier sense in the N. T., is used to denote a. "the eternal blessedness in the consummated kingdom of God which is to be expected after the visible return of Christ": Galatians 3:18; Colossians 3:24 (τῆς κληρονομίας, genitive of apposition ( Winer's Grammar, § 59,8a.)); Hebrews 9:15; 1 Peter 1:4; ἡμῶν, destined for us, Ephesians 1:14; τοῦ Θεοῦ, given by God, 18.

b. the share which an individual will have in that eternal blessedness: Acts 20:32; Ephesians 5:5.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A registration of property of the year A.D. 110–111, P Ryl II. 108.9, runs—ἀπογραφόμεθα ἐπὶ τοῦ παρόντος εἰς τὸ ἐνεστὸς ι ̄δ ̄ (ἔτος) Τραιανοῦ Καίσαρος τοῦ κυρίου ἀπὸ κληρον [ο ]μίας τῆς μετηλλαχυίης ἡμῶν μη (τρὸς) Εὐδαιμονίδ (ος) . . . κατοικικὰς ἀρούρας δύο, ";we register now for the current 14th year of Trajanus Caesar the lord two arurae of catoecic land forming part of the inheritance of our deceased mother Eudaemonis"; (Edd.) : cf. P Oxy I. 76 (A.D. 179), where a certain Apia writes to the strategus with reference to property that would come to her from her father who was dangerously ill—.21 ff. οὐκ οὖσα ́ δὲ προαιρέσεως προσέρχεσθαι τῃ τούτου κληρονομίᾳ ἀναγκαίως ἐντεῦθεν δηλῶ σοι ὅπως κελεύσῃ τὸ ἀκόλουθον γενέσθαι, πρὸς τὸ μετὰ τελευτὴν αὐτοῦ ἀνεύθυνόν με εἶναι, ";as I have no intention of entering on his inheritance, I am obliged to send you notice, that you may give instructions about the next step to be taken, in order to free me from responsibility after his death"; (Edd.), and P Tebt II. 319 (A.D. 248) which, after describing how the property jointly held by two men is to be divided, proceeds—.28 ff. μένοντος δὲ αὐτοῖς λόγου περὶ ὧν ἂν ἑτέρων εὑρίσκωσιν τῆς κλ [η ]ρονομίας ὑπαρχόντων, ";and further settlement shall be made by them about whatever other property they find to appertain to the estate"; (Edd,). See also from the inscrr. Michel 546.19 (i/B.C.) περιεποίησεν τῶι δήμωι κατὰ ἀπόφασιν τὴν κληρονομίαν.
