Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The bad sense of this word, ";craftiness,"; ";cunning,"; which prevails in its NT occurrences (cf. Armitage Robinson on Ephesians 4:14), is well illustrated by P Oxy II. 237viii. 12 (A.D. 186) παραγγέλλω τῆς τοιαύτης πανουργίας ἀπέ íσ ýχεσθαι, ";I proclaim that such persons shall abstain from this form of knavery"; (Edd.), where the reference is to threatening an action which will make creditors renounce their claims. Note also the conjunction in OGIS 515.47 (iii/ A.D.) ἐκ κακουργίας καὶ πανουργίας : cf. Artem. p. 240.19 πανουργίαν καὶ κακοτροπίαν. The subst. πανούργευμα is found in a good sense in Judith 11:8.
