Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";act contrary to the law"; (Acts 23:3), is not so common as we might have expected, but see OGIS 765.9 (iii/B.C.) οὐ μόνον δὲ ἐν τῆι χώραι εἰς το [ὺς π ]ο [λί ]τας παρε [ν ] [μουν. Cf. also PSI IV. 330.9 (B.C. 258–7) ἀδίκως μετὰ βίας παρανομηθείς, and the late P Oxy VIII. 1106.9 (vi/A.D.) where certain lawbreakers are warned that a troop of soldiers may hand them over πρὸς τιμωρίαν ὧν ἂν παρανομῆσαι τολμήσειεν, ";to be punished for any lawlessness upon which they may venture.";
