Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";at all times,"; ";always,"; used by late writers for διαπαντός (cf. Rutherford NP, p. 183 f.), may be illustrated by P Giss I. 17.4 (a slave to her master—time of Hadrian) (= Chrest. I. 481) εὔχομαι πάντοτε περὶ τῆς ὑγιείας σου, and P Oxy XIV. 1759.4 (letter to an athlete—ii/A.D.) εὔχομαί σε ὑγιαίνειν [κ ]αὶ νικᾶν πάντοτε. See also Syll 376 (= .3 814).37 (A.D. 67), where Nero is described as—εὐσεβῶν τοὺς θεοὺς ἡμῶν παριστανομένους αὐτῷ πάντοτε ἐπὶ προνοίᾳ καὶ σωτηρίᾳ. For an earlier ex., from time of Augustus, see BGU IV. 1123.8.
