Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The verb, which is used of Divine ";guiding"; in Wisdom of Solomon 14:6, is applied to the management of a household in the inscr. quoted s.v. ἀνέγκλητος ad fin. : cf. 1 Corinthians 12:28. The compd. διακυβερνάω is used of a woman ";piloting"; herself and her child out of a time of crisis—ἐκ τοῦ το [ιού ]του καιροῦ ἐμαυτή [ν ] τε καὶ τὸ παιδί [ον σ ]ου διακεκυβερνηκυῖα (P Lond 42.16 (B.C. 168) (= I. p. 30, Selections, p. 10)). For a new literary citation for κυβερνάω see Herodas ii. 99 f. ταῦτα σκοπεῦντες πάντα τὴν δίκην ὀρθῇ | γνώμῃ κυβερνᾶτε.
