Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";mourn."; The conjunction of πενθέω and κλαίω, as in Mark 16:10 al., is found in a very illiterate letter addressed by a man to his wife, P Oxy III. 528.9 (ii/A.D.) γινόσκειν σε θέλω ἀφ᾽ ὡς ἐ íκ ýξῆλθες ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ πένθος ἡγούμην νυκτὸς κλέ (= αί)ων, ήμέρας δὲ πενθω ̣<ν >, ";I wish you to know that ever since you left me I have been in mourning, weeping by night and mourning by day."; See also P Par 22.24 (B.C. 163) (= UPZ i. p. 193) ἐπιγενηθέντος δὲ τοῦ πένθους τοῦ Ἄπιος κατάγουσιν ἡμᾶς πενθεῖν τῶι θεῶι. In Syll 879 (= .3 1219).5 (iii/B.C.) it is laid down τἀς πενθούσας ἔχειν φαιὰν ἐσθῆτα μὴ κατερρυπωμένην, ";that the mourning women should wear dark raiment, not soiled.";
