Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the metaph meaning ";aim,"; ";object,"; as in Philippians 3:14, we may cite the last Will and Testament of Bishop Abraham, P Lond 77.8 (end of vi/A.D.) (= I. p. 232, Chrest. II. p. 370), where the Bishop declares that he acts ἐξ οἰκεία [ς ] προθέσεως καὶ σκοπῷ αὐθαιρέτῳ, and adds .48 συνήρηκεν τῷ ἐμῷ ἀγαθῷ σκοπῷ : cf. P Lips I. 38i. 17 (A.D. 390) σκοπὸν ἔχ ̣ων, τὸν ἔνδικον. . . συντρῖψαι, and Aristeas 251 κατορθοῦται γὰρ βίος, ὅταν ὁ κυβερνῶν εἰδῇ, πρὸς τίνα σκοπὸν δεῖ τὴν διέξοδον ποιεῖσθαι, ";for life is then guided aright, when the steersman knows the port to which he must direct his course"; (Thackeray).

For the lit. sense a ";mark"; to be aimed at, cf. Syll 670 (= .3 1059 I.).16 (i/A.D.) σκοπῷ ἱππέων, 671 (= .3 1059 II.).41 (c. A.D. 1) σκοπῷ πεζῶν.
