Thayer's Expanded Definition

Ὀζίας (L T Tr WH Ὀζείας (cf. Tdf. Proleg., p. 84; WHs Appendix, p. 155, and see εἰ, )), Οζιου (but cf. Buttmann, 18 (16)), , (עֻזִּיָה and עֻזִּיָהוּ, strength of Jehovah, or my strength is Jehovah), Ozias or Uzziah, son of Amaziah, king of Judah (circa) (2 Kings 15:30ff): Matthew 1:8f, where the Evangelist ought to have preserved this order: Ιωραμ, Οχοζιας, Ιωας, Ἀμαζιας, Ὀζίας. He seems therefore to have confounded Οχοζιας and Ὀζίας; see another example of (apparent) confusion under Ιεχονιας. (But Matthew has simply omitted three links; such omissions were not uncommon, cf. e. g. 1 Chronicles 6:3ff and Ezra 7:1ff See the commentators.)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

(1) An interesting use of ὅπως, in which it is virtually a conjunction = ";in which case,"; is seen in such passages as P Tebt II. 414.32 (ii/A.D.) ἡ ληνὲ (= )ς τοῦ Ἀγαθανγέλου ἐστίν, ὅπως τοῖς παιδίο <ι >ς δοθῇ, ";the trough belongs to Agathangelus, so let it be given to the children"; (Edd.). See further Proleg. p. 177 n.1. (2) For ὅπως, like πῶς, used in the sense of ὡς, ὅτι (cf. Blass Gr. p. 230 f.), we may recall the letter of the prodigal BGU III. 846.16 (ii/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 95) οὐκ οἶδες, ὅτι θέλω πη ̣ρο ̣̣ς γενέσται, εἰ γνοῦναι, ο ̣̓́π ̣ως ἀνθρόπῳ [ ]τ [ι ] ὀφείλω ὀβολόν; ";do you not know that I would rather be a cripple than be conscious that I am still owing anyone an obolus?"; Deissmann (LAE, p. 179 n..28) finds a beginning of this usage in Luke 24:20, the only place in the NT where ὅπως is construed with the ind. (but cf. Matthew 26:59 A). A good ex. of ὅπως c. ind. from the papyri is BGU III. 830.4 (i/A.D.) δ [ιε ]πεμψάμην σ [οι τὸ ]ν ἐμὸν ἄνθρωπον, ὅπ [ως ] καλῶς ποιήσι (= ει)ς, συμβαλὼν χάρ [ακα ] περὶ τοῦ ἐ ̣[λαιῶν ]ος ἠ (= )δίου αὐτοῦ τοῦ ἐνθάδε. (3) Ὅπως, ";in order that,"; is seen c. subj. with ἄν in PSI V. 512.8 (B.C. 253–2) ἐγὼ δὲ προ ̣̣ς τοὺς μελισσοργοὺς ἐπορεύθην ὅπως ἂν εἰδήσω ὡς πωλῖται, ";I went to the bee-keepers that I might know how it is sold,"; and without ἄν in such passages as P Par 46.16 (B.C. 153) γέγραφά σοι ὅπω [ς ] Ἀπολλωνίῳ παραγγείλῃς, P Ryl II. 139.19 (A.D. 34) διὸ ἀξιῶι γράψαι τῶι τῆς κώιμης ἀρχεφόδῳ ὅπως ἀναζήτησιν ποιήσηται, and P Tebt II. 419.4 (iii/A.D.) πέμψον τὴν ὄνον ὅπως σφραγισθῇ. On the relative use of ὅπως and ὅπως ἄν in the Attic inscrr. see Meisterhans Gr. § 91.30. (4) For ὅπως after ἐρωτάω and similar verbs of asking, exhorting, etc. (as in Luke 11:37 al.) cf. P Tebt II. 409.4 ff. (A.D. 5) ἐπὶ τῆς πόλεώς σε ἠρώτησα δούς σοι (δραχμὰς) ι ̄β ̄ ὅπως Λυσιμάχῳ δοῖς καὶ ἐρωτήσῃς αὐτὸν οι ̣̔(= )πὲρ ἐμοῦ ὅπως γ ̄ τελήους μοίκλ ̣ε ̣α ̣ς (l. μύκλους) συντόμως πέμψηι, ";at the metropolis I gave you 12 drachmae and asked you to give them to Lysimachus and ask him on my behalf to send me at once 3 he-asses without blemish"; (Edd.), P Amh II. 131.8 (early ii/A.D.) μελησάτω σοι ὅπως ἀγορασθῇ τὰ κενώματα, ";see that the empty jars are bought"; (Edd.), and P Oxy I. 67.6 (A.D. 338) ἐπιδίδωμί σοι ὅπως εἰς ἔργον προαγάγοις τὰ κεκελευσμένα, ";I petition you to carry his orders into effect."; An apparent ex. of ὅπως c. inf., where we would have expected ὥστε, is to be found in P Tebt II. 315.30 (ii/A.D.) ἔχι γὰρ συστατικὰς ̣ [ ]π ̣ως τὸν ἀπιθοῦντα μετὰ φρουρᾶς τῷ ἀρχιερῖ πέμπιν, ";he has instructions to send recalcitrants under guard to the high-priest"; (Edd.). MGr ὅπως κι ἄν, ";however.";
