Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The weaker sense of . is illustrated by P Tebt II. 276.34 (an astrological fragment—ii/iii A.D.), where one who has acquired certain possessions ἐξωδιασμὸν αὐτῶν [ποιήσ ]ε ̣ται καὶ ἀπώλειαν, ";will spend and lose them"; (Edd.). Similarly in a series of nursing-contracts of the time of Augustus in BGU IV. we find the phrase ἐκτίνειν τὴν ἑκάστον ἀξίαν πλὴν συμφανοῦς ἀπωλείας, e.g. 1058.35 (= Chrest. II. 170), 1106.33, al. For the stronger meaning which we associate with NT usage, cf. the close of an ancient Coptic spell from the iii/A.D. Paris magical papyrus .1245 ff (= Selections, p. 114) ἔξελθε δαῖμον, ἐπεί σε δεσμεύω δεσμοῖς ἀδαμαντίνοις ἀλύτοις, καὶ παραδίδωμί σε εἰς τὸ μέλαν χάος ἐν ταῖς ἀπωλίαις, ";give you over to black chaos in utter destruction.";
