Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With 1 Corinthians 13:1 cf. P Hib I. 54.18 (c. B.C. 245) (= Wit-kowski.2, p. 34), where in preparation for a domestic festival Demophon sends for a certain Zenobius—ἔχοντα τύμπανον καὶ κύμβαλα καὶ κρόταλα, ";with tabret, and cymbals, and rattles"; : cf. Deissmann LAE.2 p. 150 ff. The word is frequent in the LXX, e.g. 1 Kings 18:6 : for the verb κυμβαλίζω see Nehemiah 12:27.
