Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the ordinary sense ";bear,"; ";give birth to,"; cf. P Oxy IV. 744.9 (B.C. 1) (= Selections, p. 33) ἐὰν πολλαπολλῶν τέκῃς. . ., ";if—good luck to you!—you bear children . . .,"; BGU I. 261.5 (ii/iii A.D.) ἐὰν Ἡροὶς τέκῃ εὐχόμεθα ἐλθεῖν πρός σε, P Oxy VII. 1069.21 (iii/A.D.) ἐὰν γὰρ τέκῃ ἡ Ταμοῦν, ἀνάγκασον αὐτὴν τὸ βρέφος φειλοπονῆσε (l. φιλοπονῆσαι), ";if Tamun bear a child, make her be assiduous with it"; (Ed.), ib. VIII. 1151.12 (Christian amulet—v/A.D.?) ἐξελοῦ τὴν δούλην σου Ἰωαννίαν, ἣν ἔτεκεν Ἀναστασία. . . ἀπὸ παντὸς κακοῦ, ";deliver from every evil thy servant Joannia whom Anastasia bare,"; and similarly.30. See also BGU II. 665ii. 14 (i/A.D.) ἵνα ᾧδε καταφθάσῃ τεκεῖν τὸ ἀνανκαῖον καὶ διὰ τὸ σὸν ο ̣̔̓ψώνι [ο ]ν.

The present participle ἡ τίκτουσα in Galatians 4:27 LXX denotes a continuous relationship, practically equivalent to ἡ μήτηρ, see Proleg. p. 127; for the future middle τέξομαι in active sense (cf. Matthew 1:23), see ib. p. 155; and for the late 1st aor. pass. ἐτέχθην (for Att. ἐγενόμην) in Matthew 2:2, Luke 2:11, see Blass Gr. p. 44.
