Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ὀρθός is used of ";standing"; hay in P Lond 1165.2 (ii/A.D.) (= III. p. 191) [χόρτ ] ᵒ χλωροῦ ὀρθοῦ : cf. ib. 755 verso .2 (iv/A.D.) (= III. p. 221) where ";standing"; columns (ἑστῶτες corrected from ὀρθοί) are contrasted with those that have fallen (χαμαὶ κείμενοι). In Syll 540.18 (B.C. 175–1) ποιῶν ὀρθὰ πάντα πρὸς κανόνα διηνεκῆ, we have the meaning ";straight."; The metaphorical use of the adj. is seen in PSI V. 549.8 (B.C. 42–1) ὀρθὴ στήσομαι ἀπέναντί σου, with reference to the attitude of a servant to her mistress, and BGU I. 248.9 (i/A.D. : see ib. II. 594 note) διὰ γὰρ τὴν [σ ] [ν ] πρόν [ο ]ια [ν ] ἐν ὀρθῶι μέλλει γείνεσθαι (l. γίνεσθαι) : cf. P Oxy III. 490.16 (A.D. 124) καὶ ἔστιν μου ἡ σφραγὶς Ἁρποχράτου ὀρθοῦ, the signature of a witness, Kaibel 397.1 μαρτύριον ὀρθοῦ βίου, and OGIS 329.10 (mid. ii/B.C.) ἀπ᾽ ὀρθῆς, ";from the right"; (way) : Hebrews 12:13. MGr ὀρθός (ὀρτός in Eastern dialects : Thumb Handbook p. 18), ";straight,"; ";correct";; ";steep."; The last meaning recalls the cognate Lat. arduus : ὀρθός, however, had originally an initial, and probably also a medial, digamma (* Ϝ ορθός, * Ϝ ορθ Ϝ ός) (Boisacq, p. 711).
