Vocabulary of the Greek NT

From its classical sense ";talkativeness,"; ";chatter,"; λαλιά comes to be used in the NT simply for ";speech,"; ";talk"; : cf. Joseph.B.J. ii. 8. 5 οὐδὲ κραυγή ποτε τὸν οἶκον, οὔτε θόρυβος μολύνει, τὰς δὲ λαλιὰς ἐν τάξει παραχωροῦσιν ἀλλήλοις. As showing however the danger accompanying much ";talking"; we may cite the early Christian letter, P Heid 6.13 (iv/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 126) ἵνα οὖν μὴ πολλὰ γράφω καὶ φλυραρήσω (l. φλυαρήσω), ἐν γὰρ [πο ]λλῇ λαλιᾷ (cf. Sirach 20:5) οὐκ ἐκφεύξοντ [αι ] (τ) (ν) ἁμαρτίη ̄ (cf. Proverbs 10:19), παρακαλ () [ο ]ὖν, δέσποτα, ἵνα μνημον [ε ]ύῃς μοι εἰς τὰς ἁγίας σου εὐχάς, ";in order that I may not by much writing prove myself an idle babbler, for ‘in the multitude of words they shall not escape sin,’ I beseech you, master, to remember me in your holy prayers."; For a new literary reference for the adj. λάλος, see the fragment of an anthology, P Tebt I. 1.9 (c. B.C. 100) φιλέρημος δὲ νάπαισιν λάλος ἀνταμείβετ᾽ ἀχώ, ";chattering Echo, lover of solitude, answers in the dells"; (Edd.).
