Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";pass on"; occurs in P Ryl II. 77.44 (A.D. 192) ὀφείλει εἰς τὴν κατεπείγο [υσα ]ν ἀρχὴν παραβαίνειν, ";he ought to pass on to the office immediately required"; (Edd.). For the definitely metaphorical meaning ";transgress,"; which alone is found in the NT (unless Acts 1:25), we may cite the following exx. : P Par 46.12 (B.C. 152) (= UPZ i. p. 338) παραβέβηκεν τοὺν ὅρκους, P Amh II. 35.30 (B.C. 132) παραβεβηκότος τὰ τῆς χειρογραφίας, P Bad 35.3 (A.D. 87) πα [ρ ]αβάς σου τὴν συνταγή [ν, BGU II. 638.16 (A.D. 143) μὴ ἐξεῖναι δὲ μηθὲν τῶν προγεγρ (αμμένων) παραβῆν [α ]ι, and P Oxy III. 526.10 (ii/A.D.) εἰ καὶ μὴ ἀ [νέ ]βενε ἐγὼ τὸν λόγον μου οὐ παρέβενον, ";even if he were not going I should not have broken my word"; (Edd.). [For the omission of ἄν in this last sentence in the apodosis of unfulfilled condition, see s.v. ἄν, and contra Robertson, Gr. p. 920 f.]

Παραβαίνω is frequent in connexion with wills, e.g. P Oxy III. 494.28 (A.D. 156) where provision is made that anyone who shall disobey (τὸν παραβησόμενον) the conditions of a will shall forfeit to the party abiding by it (τῷ ἐμμένοντι) the damages and other sums. On the legal usages of παραβαίνω and ἐμμένω see Berger Strafklauseln, p. 3. For παραβαίνω used in a religious connexion, cf. Syll 574 (=.3989).3 (ii/B.C.) ὃς δ᾽ ἄν παραβαίνηι, αὐτὸς [αὑτὸν αἰτιάσεται, with reference to the temple of Artemis at Ephesus, and OGIS 569.19 (iv/A.D.) μηδεμιᾷ σκαιᾷ τινι και [νουργίᾳ τὴν τιμὴν ] τὴν τοῖς θεοῖς ὀφειλομένην παραβαίνειν.
