Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The common occurrence of this word after a signature, just as we write ";witness,"; e.g. P Oxy I. 105.13 (a will—A.D. 117–137) Σαραπίων Σαραπίωνος. . μαρτυρῶ, P Lond 1164 (f).35 (records of sales and receipts—A.D. 212) (= III. p. 162) Ἡλιό [δ ]ωρος. . . μαρτυρῶ, P Grenf II. 68.21 f. (deed of gift—A.D. 247) Αὐρήλιος Φιλοσάραπις. . μαρτ [υρ ]. Αὐρήλιος Ἀμμώνιος. . μαρτυρῶ, may be cited in illustration of the Pauline usage in 2 Corinthians 8:3. The verb has again a judicial sense in P Amh II. 66.35 (A.D. 124) Στοτοήτιος λέγοντος. . . παρεῖναι τοὺς μαρτυρῆσαι δυναμένους τὸ [ν ] φόν [ο ]ν, ";Stotoëtis Stated that there were present persons able to witness to the murder"; (Edd.), cf. .38. For the more general meaning, ";bear witness to,"; ";report,"; cf. PSI I. 94.3 (ii/A.D.) πρὸς τὸ μαρτυρῆσαι ὑμεῖν τὴν φιλανθρωπίαν μου, P Oxy VII. 1064.12 (iii/A.D.) γράφω σοι. . ὅπως συνλάβῃς τῷ Ἄπει. . ξενίαν δὲ αὐτῷ ποιήσῃς, πρὸς τὸ ἐπανελθόντα αὐτὸν μαρτυρῆσαί μοι, ";I write to you that you may assist Apis, and may show him hospitality, so that on his return he may bear witness of it to me"; (Ed,), similarly ib. 1068.19 (iii/A.D.), ib. XII, 1424.17 (c. A.D. 318) ἀλλ᾽ ἵνα μοι μαρτυρήσῃ τὰ ὑπὸ τῆς ἀγαθῆς σου προαιρέσεως αὐτῷ ὑπαρχθέντα, ";but let him testify to the benefits gained by your good will"; (Edd.) (for the construction cf. Mark 5:23, Ephesians 5:33, al.), and the early Christian letter P Grenf II. 73.16 (late iii/A.D.) (= Selections, p.118) ὅταν ἔλθῃ σὺν Θεῷ, μαρτυρήσι σοι περὶ ὧν αὐτὴν πεποιήκασιν, ";when he airives by the help of God, he will bear you witness of what they have done to her."; Another Christian example is P Oxy VIII. 1164.11 (vi/vii A.D.) where a minor local magnate writes to a comes μαρτυρεῖ μοι γὰρ ὁ θεὸς ὅτι σπουδάζω ἐν ἅπασιν τὰ κελευόμενά μοι παρ᾽ ὑμῶν ἁποπληρῶσαι, ";God is my witness that I am anxious in everything to perform your orders"; (Ed.). For μαρτυρέω, ";give a good report,"; as in Luke 4:22, cf. P Oxy VI. 930.16 (ii/iii A.D.), where a mother writes to her son that she had received a good report of his παιδαγωγός from his former teacher—ἐμαρτύρει δὲ πολλὰ περὶ τοῦ παιδαγωγοῦ σου : cf. Syll 197 (= .3374).37 (c. B.C. 287–6) πολλάκις μεμαρτύρηκεν αὐτῶν ὁ βασιλεύς. The corresponding use of the pass, with reference to ";the good name"; witnessed of a man, as in Acts 6:8; Acts 10:22, 1 Timothy 5:10, Hebrews 11:2, may be illustrated from BGU IV, 1141.15 (B.C. 14) ὡς καὶ μαρτυρηθήσεταί σοι ὑπὸ τῶν φίλων, ib. 1155.15 (B.C. 10) (= Chrest. II. p.75) πιττακ ̣ι ̣ου μεμαρτυρημένου δὲ δι᾽ ὧν ἀνήνενκεν ὁ Πρώταρχος συνχωρήσεων, and from the inscrr. Syll 366 (= .3799).28 (c.
