Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This late Greek word, which is condemned by the Atticists (Lob. Phryn. pp. 487 ff., 421), but is found in Aristotle (Eth. Nic. v. 14. 7), occurs in the literal sense of ";building"; in the Κοινή, e.g. P Grenf I. 21.17 (B.C. 126) εἰς οἰκ ]οδομὴν περιστερῶνος, BGU III. 894.2 (A.D. 109) λόγ (ος) οἰτομῆς (l. οἰκοδομῆς) τέκτω (νες) β ̄, P Flor II. 200.4 (A.D. 259) εἰς οἰκοδομὴν κρήνης, and from the inscrr. OGIS 655.2 (B.C. 25) ἡ οἰκοδομὴ τοῦ περιβόλου τῷ θεῶι καὶ κυρίῳ Σοκνοπαίωι. In Ephesians 4:29 πρὸς οἰκοδομὴν τῆς χρείας Field (Notes, p. 192) suggests that perhaps the meaning is ";for the improvement of the occasion."; The word is a shortened form of οἰκοδόμημα : see s.vv. ἀγάπη, γλωσσόκομον.
