Vocabulary of the Greek NT

πολυμερῶς (= πολυσχέδως, Hesych.) denotes ";in many portions"; as distinguished from πολυτρόπως, ";in many manners"; (Hebrews 1:1). For the adj., as in Sap 7:22, cf. P Leid Wvii. 41 (ii/iii A.D.) (= II. p. 105) where the god Fire is described as ἀόρατον καὶ πολυμερῆ. Both adj. and adv. are common in Vett. Val., e.g. p. 257.19 ἐπεὶ οὖν τὸ συνεκτικώτατον κεφάλαιόν ἐστι τὸ περὶ χρόνων ζωῆς, πολυμερῶς [τε ] οὕτως ἐν τοῖς ἔμπροσθεν συντέτακται.
