Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";prepare,"; ";make ready."; The verb is used in a causative sense in P Amh II. 145.11 (iv/v A.D.) οὐδὲν ἕτε [ρον ] παρασκευάζει πολλοὺς εἰδότας τὸ [σὸν ] ε ̣ἰς ἡμᾶς ἐνδιάθετον προσφεύγειν [μοι, ";no other reason causes many who know your feelings for me to come to me for help"; (Edd.), PSI I. 50.3 (iv/v A.D.) σοι ἐδήλωσα ἵνα παρασκευάσῃς τοὺς σκυτέας (";the leather workers";) τοῦ Ἀμμωνίου παρασχεῖν τῷ ταυρελάτῃ (";the bull driver";) τὸ δέρμα, and the late BGU I. 103.5 (vi/vii A.D.) (= Chrest. I. p. 160) καταξήωσον τούτους παρασκευάσε ἀμφοτέρους ἐλθῆν ἐνταῦθ [α.

Other exx. of the verb are BGU IV. 1159.9 (time of Augustus) ἐργατήαν παρεσσκευακω ̣̣ς (l. παρεσκευακὼς) με ̣γ ̣α ̣λ ̣η ̣ν ̣, and from the inscrr. Syll 721 (= .3 662).17 (B.C. 165–4) εὔχρηστον ἑαυτὸν παρασκευάζ [ειν, ib. 545 (= .3 707).16 (ii/B.C.) τὰ πρὸς τὸν καιρὸν ἐμπείρως καὶ προθύμως παρεσκεύασεν. In 1 Corinthians 14:8 the mid. παρασκευάσεται is better understood intransitively ";prepare,"; ";make preparations,"; than reflexively ";prepare himself"; (AV, RV) : see Proleg. p. 156. Cf. also P Cairo Zen 59096.4 (B.C. 257) ὅπως τὰ πρὸς τὴ ̣ν ̣ [παρουσίαν αὐτοῦ ] π ̣α ̣ρ ̣α ̣σ ̣κευασώμεθα.
