Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ὑπερβαίνω is found in the NT only in 1 Thessalonians 4:6, where it is best taken absolutely = ";transgress."; For the literal use cf. BGU III. 1007.10 (iii/B.C.) πάντ [ες ] ὑπερέβησαν εἰς τὴν αὐλήν μου, and for the trans. sense cf. PSI VI. 685.6 (iv/A.D.) ὑπερβὰς τὰ ἑξ ̣ [κοντα ἔτη, P Lond 113. 1.23 (vi/A.D.) ( = I. p. 201) ἔννομον ὑπ [ερβὰς ] ἡιλικίαν κατὰ τ [ὸν αὐτ ]οῦ λόγον, and ib. V. 1711.76 (A.D. 566–573) εἰ ὑπερβήσωμαι ταῦτα τὰ ἐγγεγραμμένα. Also Aristeas 122 νομίζειν ὑπερφρονεῖν ἑτέρους ὑπερβεβηκότες, ";the assuming of an air of superiority over others"; (Thackeray). In one of the interesting letters belonging to the Gemellus correspondence, P Fay 110.9 (A.D. 94), Gemellus gives instructions that a deep trench be dug round the oil-press, ἵνα μὴ εὖ ὑπερβατὸν ἦι τὸ ἐλαιουργῖον, ";so that it may not be easy to walk into the oil-press"; (Edd.) : cf. P Ryl II. 138.16 (A.D. 34) of a robber springing into a homestead ἐξ ὑπερβατῶν, ";at a point where ingress was possible"; (Edd.).
