Vocabulary of the Greek NT

μακάριος is used in the LXX for אַשִׁרֵי (Psalms 1:1, al.), ";Oh, the happiness of . . .!";, and in Hebrew thought denotes a state of true well-being : hence Matthew 5:3, al. In 1 Timothy 1:11; 1 Timothy 6:15, it is applied to God : with the latter passage cf. Philo de Sacrificiis Abelis et Caini, p. 147 περὶ θεοῦ τοῦ ἀγεννήτου καὶ ἀφθάρτου καὶ ἀτρέπτου καὶ ἁγίου καὶ μόνου μακαρίου (cited by White EGT ad l.), and the passages cited by Dibelius HZNT ad 1.11. The absence of early exx. of this common prose word is curious, but it is frequent in the New Comedy, and late exx. may be quoted from the papyri, as PSI III. 176.16 (v/A.D.) Φλα (ύιος) Μηνᾶς στρατηλατιανὸς υἱὸς τοῦ μακαρίου Δωροθέου ὑπέγραψα κτλ., and the Christian P Giss I. 55.6 (vi/A.D.) π ]αρὰ του ̣ͅ τῆς μ ̣[α ]καρίας μνη ̣μη ̣ς Φοιβαδίου ̣ τοῦ ἐπισκ [όπου. From the inscrr. we may cite Cagnat IV. 808.5 ( Hierapolis) εἰς τήν εὐτυχῆ καὶ μακαρίαν ὑπατ [ , OG1S 519.9 (c. A.D. 245) ἐν τοῖς μακαριωτάτοις ὑμῶν καιροῖς, and the Christian sepulchral inscr. from Akhmim (?) of Byzantine times, Preisigke 1442 ἐτελεύ <τη >σεν ἡ μακαρία Σεμεῦγα ἐπὶ μηνὶ Ἁθὺρ ι ̄θ ̄. For Μακαρία as a proper name cf. the Phrygian epitaph cited by Ramsay Exp T xxvi. p. 170 (cf. p. 172)—ἔτους τ ̄λ ̄γ ̄ (anno 333 of the Phrygian era =A.D. 247–8) Αὐρήλιος Φρουγιανὸς Μηνοκρίτου καὶ Αὐρ. Ἰουλιανὴ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ Μακαρίᾳ μητρὶ καὶ Ἀλεξανδρίᾳ θυγατρὶ γλυκυτάτῃ ζῶντες κατεσκεύασαν μνήμης χάριν.
