Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In support of the view that in Acts 17:25 προσδέομαι means ";need in addition"; as against the AV, RV rendering ";need,"; the following exx. of the verb may be cited : —P Petr II. 37ii. 18 (iii/B.C.) (= p. [119]) ὁ γὰρ καιρὸς οὐδεμιᾶς ὑπερβολῆς προσδεῖται, ";for the time allows of no further delay,"; P Lille I. 5.13 (B.C. 260–59) διὰ τὸ προσδεῖσθαι μέρος τ ̣ι ̣ τῆς γῆς αὐτοῦ πωολογίας, ";because a part of his land has still need of poologia,"; P Flor I. 1.6 (A.D. 153) μὴ προσδεομένοις ἀνανεώσεως, ";needing no renewal,"; and ib. 56.18 (A.D. 234) καὶ ἐν οἷς ἄλλοις αὐτοῦ προσδ [έομ ]α ̣ι ̣ π ̣ε ̣ρ ̣ὶ τούτων. Cf. P Ryl II. 155.16 (A.D. 138–161) κ ̣α ̣ι ̣̣ μ ̣ὴ προσδεομένη íς ý ἑτέρου [τινὸς αὐτῇ συναπογραφομένο ]υ, ";having no need of the concurrence of any other person"; (Edd.), P Oxy IX. 1200.35 (A.D. 266) οὐ προσδεόμενος ἑτέρας μου εὐδοκήσεως ἢ μεταλήμψεως, ";without requiring any further consent or concurrence from me"; (Ed.). See also Field Notes, p. 127 f.

In other passages the force of προσ —, though not so obvious, is not excluded, e.g. P Par 63.154 (B.C. 154) (= P Petr III. p. 30) τῶν προσδεομένων κωμῶν, ";the needy villages,"; i.e. ";villages needing more than they have,"; P Tebt I. 59.8 (B.C. 99) ἐν οἶς ἐὰν προσδεῆσθέ μου ἐπιτάσσοντές μοι προθυμότερον, ";so, whatever you may require, do not hesitate to command my services"; (Edd.), and P Oxy IV. 743.33 (B.C. 2) ἐν οἷς ἐὰν σοῦ προσδεῆται συνπροσγενέσθαι αὐτῶι, ";whatever service he may require from you, stand by him"; (Edd.). The subst. προσδέησις in Epicurea p. 28.5 (ed. Usener) ἐν ἀσθενείᾳ καὶ φόβῳ καὶ προσδεήσει τῶν πλησίον ταῦτα γίνεται has the meaning ";need,"; ";want,"; the προσ —being apparently otiose.
