Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Tebt I. 19.10 (B.C. 1 14) μόλις ἕως τῆς κ ̄ε ̄ χωρισθήσονται, ";they will hardly depart until the 25th"; (Edd.), P Ryl II. 113.27 (A.D. 133) μόλις πάντα τὰ ἐμαυτοῦ πωλήσας ἐδυνήθην πληρῶσαι, ";I was with difficulty able to complete this by selling all my property"; (Edd.), P Oxy VIII. 1117.19 (c. A.D. 178) μέτρια κεκτήμεθα ἐξ ὧν καὶ μόλις ζῶμεν, and Kaibel 531.1 μόλις ποτὲ ηὗρον δεσπότ [ην ] εὐνούστατον.

In MGr μόλις may have a temporal sense, ";just now,"; ";as soon as."; The word is perhaps related to μῶλος, Lat. moles, just as μόγις comes from μόγος (Boisacq, p. 643).
