I'm new to this mailing list, and this is my first posting. I was hoping
you could help me.

I have been having a study with a group of elders at our church on the
topic of divorce. We have been looking at 1 Cor. 7 where "divorce by
desertion of unbelieving spouse" is discussed. The crux of the argument
revolves around the meaning of two terms in that passage:

7:15 dedoulotai from douloo "bound"

7:39 dedetai from deo "bound"

Can anyone point my to some good references that discuss the meanings of
these two terms? Are they synonyms? How are they similar? ...different?
I don't have a good library available to me right now. Does anybody out
there have Kittel in an electronic form, that they could post a small

Any help that can be provided would be appreciated. Thanks!
