Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this distinctively Jeieish title of the ";most high"; God, we may cite from the inscrr. OGIS 96.7 (iii/ii B.C.) οἱ ἐν Ἀθρίβει Ἰουδαῖοι τὴν προσευχὴν θεῷ Ὑψίστῳ, Archiv v. p. 163, No. 10.2 (B.C. 29) Θεῶι μεγάλω <ι > μεγάλω <ι > ὑψίστω <ι >, where Rubensohn thinks that the reference is again to Jehovah, JHS xxii. (1902), p. 124, No. 58.3 ἦεν ἐν ἀνθρώποις ἱερεὺς θεοῦ ὑψίστου, and C. and B. ii. p. 652, No. 563 ἐὰν δέ τις ἕτερον σῶμα εἰσενέγκῃ ἔσ ]ται αὐτῷ πρὸς τὸν θεὸν τὸν ὕψιστον (see the editor’s note). Other references will be found in Herwerden Lex. s.v.

The Christian use of the word appears in the following exx. selected from Ghedini’s Letters Christians—P Lips I. 111.3 (iv/A.D.) πρὸ μὲν [πά ]ντων εὔχομαι τῷ ὑψίστῳ θε [ ] περὶ τῆς σῆς ὑγίας, P Lond 1244.3 (iv/A.D.) (=III. p. 244) π ]ροσαγορεύω νυκτὸς [κ ]αὶ ἡμέραις τῷ ὑψίστῳ θεῷ, and P Iand I. 14.3 (iv/A.D.) πρὸ μ [ὲν ] πάντων [εὔ ]χομαι τῷ ἐν ὑψίσ [τ ]ῳ θεῷ (cf. Luke 2:14).

See also the magical P Lond 46.46 (1v/A.D.) (= I. p. 66) διατήρησόν με καὶ τὸν παῖδα τοῦτον ἀπημάντους ἐν ὀνόματι τοῦ ὑψίστου θεοῦ. the Pagan prayer for vengeance in Preisigke 1323 (ii/A.D.) Θεῷ ὑψίστῳ καὶ πάντων ἐπόπτῃ καὶ Ἡλίῳ καὶ Νεμέσεσι αἴρει Ἀρσεινόη ἄωρος τὰς χεῖρας, and OGIS 755, 756, two stones from a sanctuary at Miletus τοῦ ἁγιωτάτου Θεοῦ Ὑψίστου, which were afterwards built into a Christian church in the beginning of the Byzantine age.
