Dear Scholars,

Could someone help me translate the first five words of this passage from
the Septuagint? I have no problem with the word meanings, but there is
something about the grammatical construction that I do not understand.

I hope the transliteration here is acceptable. It is from the Logos
Bible Software Greek text.

5 hJmavrtosan oujk aujtw'/ tevkna mwmhtav, genea; skolia; kai;
Septuaginta, (Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft Stuttgart) 1979.

Any help would be appreciated.
