Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The word is perpetually recurring at the end of petitions. P Par 35.38 (B.C. 163) τούτου δὲ γενομένου ἔσομαι τετευχὼς τῆς παρ᾽ ὑμῶν βοηθείας , BGU I. 226.23 (A.D. 99) πρὸς τὸ τυχῖν με τῆς ἀπὸ σοῦ βοηθείας , ib. 340.27 (A.D. 148–9) ἀναγκέως ἐπὶ τὴ ̣ ν σὴν βοήθιαν κατέφυγον , P Gen I. 6.16 (A.D. 146) ἵνα δυνηθῶ ἐκ τῆς σῆς βοηθείας κομίσασθαι τὸ ἴδιον , and P Oxy X. 1272.22 (A.D. 144) ἵνα δυνηθῶ τῇ σῇ βοηθείᾳ ἀνευρεῖν τὰ ἡμέτερα . A slightly different technical meaning is found in a restoration by Mitteis of P Oxy VII. 1020.5 (A.D. 198–201) εἰ τὴν ἐκ τῆς ἡλικίας ἔχεις β ̣[οήθιαν , ";if you can claim the assistance due to immature age,"; = aetatis auxilium, for which the code of Justinian is quoted (Ed.). More ordinary, though still in a petition, is BGU IV. 1201.12 (A.D. 2) καὶ ἡμῶν ἀνακράξαντες (for -άντων ) εἰς τὴν κώμην πρὸς βοήθηαν . On the phrase βοηθείαις ἐχρῶντο in Acts 27:17 see a note by Nestle in ZNTW viii. p. 75 f., where for β . = ";supports"; he quotes Philo De Josepho § 33 (ed. Cohn = II. 46 M.) ὥσπερ γὰρ κυβερνήτης ταῖς τῶν πνευμάτων μεταβολαῖς συμμεταβάλλει τὰς πρὸς εὔπλοιαν βοηθείας = ";verwendetcn Stützen."; For the interchange of ο and οι in this and similar words, see Mayser Gr. p. 110.
