Vocabulary of the Greek NT

παραγγέλλω is common in Ptolemaic papyri to describe the official summons before a court, e.g. P Par 4617 (B.C. 153) (= UPZ i. p. 338) γέγραφά σοι, ὅπω [ς ] Ἀπολλωνίωι παραγγείληις, P Grenf I. 40.6 (ii/B.C.) (= Chrest. II. p. 21) ἔκρινον γράψαι σοι ὅπως εἰδὼς παραγγείλης καὶ τ [οῖς ] ἄλλοις ἱερεῦσι ἑτοίμους εἶναι, and P Tebt I. 14.5 (B.C. 114) ἔγραψας ἡμῖν Ἡρᾶν (l. Ἡρᾶτι) . . . εὐθυνομένωι δὲ φόνωι καὶ ἄλλαις αἰτία <ι >ς παραγγεῖλαι ἀπαντᾶν ἐν ἡμέραι <ς > τρισὶν πρὸς τὴν περὶ τούτων ἐσομένην διεξαγωγήν, ";you wrote to me that I was to give notice to Heras who is arraigned for murder and other offences to appear in three days’ time for the decision to be made concerning these charges"; (Edd.).

Miscellaneous uses of the verb are—P Amh II. 30.40 (ii/B.C.) παρηγγείλαμεν τῆι Θεμβῶτος (l. Θεμβῶτι) ἐκχωρεῖν ἐκ τῆς οἰκίας, ";we ordered Thembos to depart out of the house,"; P Tebt II. 386.22 (B.C. 12) ἐν ἡμέραις τριάκοντα ἀφ᾽ ἧς ἐάν μοι παρανγίλῃ, ";within thirty days from the day on which you give me notice,"; with reference to the repayment of a dowry following on a deed of divorce, P Ryl II. 81.9 (c. A.D. 104) διὰ σοῦ αὐτοῖς παρανγείλας ἵν᾽ ὅσου ἐὰν χρείαν ἔχωσι ὑδάτους (l. ὕδατος) ἑαυ [τοῖς ἐ ]πιχαλῶσι, ";instructing them through you to draw off as much water as they need"; (Edd.), the illiterate ib. 435 (ii/A.D.) where we have twice the formula παρήγκελκά συ (l. παρήγγελκά σοι) ἄλλα ἅπαξ, ";I have instructed you several times"; (cf. Archiv vi. p. 379), and P Oxy VI. 937.8 (iii/A.D.) κἂν νῦν οὖν παραγγέλλω σοι, ὦ κυρία μου ἀδελφή, ἵνα παραβάλῃς πρὸς τῇ πλατείᾳ τοῦ θεάτρου, ";and for the present I bid you, my dear sister, go to the street of the theatre.";

For the aoristic present παραγγ ̣έλλω in Acts 16:18, see Proleg. p. 119. With παραγγέλλω in 1 Timothy 6:17 al. Ramsay (Exp T xiv. p. 159) compares the use in the inscrr. of Dionysopolis—παραγγέλλω πᾶσι μὴ καταφρονεῖν τοῦ θεοῦ. MGr παραγγέλνω.
