Sample text

He means simply that hymns address deity (prayer) and are marked by their musicality (“sung”). Even within the studies of these authors, the word prayer appears with varied meanings, which creates confu‐ sion when seeking to understand Greek praise vis‐à‐vis petition.  He must mean gratitude offered in plain speech. As one reviewer notes, Pulleyn “varies between the technical use of the word ‘prayer’ and the more common modern definition,” F. Hickson Hahn, review of Simon Pulleyn, Prayer in Greek Religion, AJP 120 (1999): 632‒6, 633.

36 Euthyphro responds in the affirmative. 37 Given such definitions, along with the numerical data presented above and the findings of Pulleyn and Versnel, it is reasonable to proceed under the assumption that εὐχή and related words mean petition, lacking evidence to the contrary. 2. Praise and Petition in Classical Greek Texts With this point of vocabulary clarified, it becomes clear that just as petition and praise comprise two poles of human interaction with the gods in He‐ brew texts, so too in Greek texts.

Not only does the narrative context suggest peti‐ tion, but the content of the people’s cry is a plea for help that opens with praise. However, the word προσευχή refers not to the speech of the crowd but to their nor‐ mal place of worship. 131. 15. 30 In the Gospels, προσεύχομαι refers to Jesus’ exemplary speech to God, combining praise and petition (Mt 6:9; par. Lk 11:2) and to a Pharisee’s praise speech (Lk 18:10‒11).  Besides the nine examples listed in Table 1, the εὐχή word family in the NT either clearly denotes petition or the content of the εὐχή is unspecified.
