Vocabulary of the Greek NT

μαγία, μαγεία, found in Acts 8:11, may be illustrated from Wünsch AF p. 16.14 (iii/A.D.) ὁρκίζω σε τὸν θεὸν τὸν πάσης μαγείας τὴν ἐω ̣γ ̣σιν ἀνθρωπίνην σειυπν ̣ . . ., where the editor understands the last words as equivalent to something like—τὸν πάσης μαγείας τὴν γνῶσιν ἀνθρωπίνην πορίσαντα, and remarks that ";magic is originally something divine, holy (ἱερᾶς μαγείας pap. Parth. 1 127).";
