Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the mid. ";make my own,"; ";acquire for oneself,"; as in 1 Timothy 3:13, see P Tor II. 8.70 (B.C. 119) (ἑαυτ)ῶι μεγάλην ἐξουσίαν περι (ποιούμενος), and cf. P Amh II. 34 (d).2 (c. B.C. 157) πλεῖόν τι περιποιούμενοι τῶι βασιλεῖ, ";gaining more for the king."; For the corresponding use of the act. cf. P Oxy II. 279.3 (A.D. 44–5) βο ]υ ̣λ ̣όμ (ενος) πλεῖον περιποιῆσαι τοῖς δη [μοσ ]ίοις, ib, I. 58.9 (A.D. 288) ὄφελος μὲν οὐδὲν περιποιοῦσιν τῷ ταμείῳ, ";they secure no advantage to the treasury"; (Edd.), ib. XVI. 1892.34 (A.D. 581) τὸ ἱκανὸν [το ]ῦ αὐτοῦ χρέους περι ̣π ̣[οιῆ ]σαι, ";to make up the equivalent of the said debt"; (Edd.), P Flor III. 295.5 (vi/A.D.) ̣ζωτίαν ἑαυτοῖς περιποιοῦντες, and from the inscrr. Syll 226 (=.8495).134 (B.C. 230) οὐκ ὀλίγα χρήματα περιεποίησε τῆι πόλει. Cf. also Pelagia-Legenden p. 12.8. In P Fay 111.8 (A.D. 95–6) (= Selections, p. 66) τὼ (l. τὸ) αἰτίωμα (cf. Acts 25:7) περιεπύ (= οι)ησε is rendered by the editors ";shifted the blame,"; in accordance with what seems to be the natural meaning of the context. In support of this unusual meaning for περιποιέω Dr. Hunt thinks that σοι must be understood, and refers us to the somewhat similar passage in Isocr. p. 150 E, where the common reading is μεγάλην αἰσχύνην τῇ πόλει περιποιοῦσιν (ποιοῦσιν Blass, περιαπτοῦσιν Cobet), and to Polyb. v. 58. 5 χωρὶς τῆς αἰσχύνης, ἣν περιποιεῖ νῦν τῇ βασιλείᾳ.
