I thought about becoming my own lexicographer. A worthy project for sure but .... Hmmm....
Serious linguists I have known read tons of primary sources. Don't rely on Lexicons.

Re: Why does apeiros take genitive

Best to try looking at samples before making judgements about semantics. Joannes Chrysostomus Sermons on Acts of the Apostles Ὁ τοιοῦτος καὶ δυνήσεται γενέσθαι βασιλεὺς, καὶ πάντα τὸν κόσμον λαβεῖν, καὶ ἐν τιμῇ εἶναι μεγίστῃ· ὁ ταύτην πλέων τὴν θάλασσαν οὐ- δέποτε ναυάγιον ὑποστήσεται, ἀλλὰ πάντα εἴ...

Re: The discursive use of και

I suspect that you are misunderstanding Levinsohn. In the future you should cite your reference books by page and section. Levinsohn DFNTG 2nd ed 2000, p124 §7.3 "conjunctive και 'is used to link items of equal status ' " a citation from Porter 1992:212. My reading of this: Equal status means that t...

Re: Translation of the Words ἓν, ἤρξαντο, ἀναφορὰν ἔχειν

You won't get past decoding if you're thinking in English while looking at Greek/Hebrew. Sounding like an echo chamber. The point has been made a thousand times on this forum. Who cares? The academic publishers including Oxford[1], Harvard, ... continue to crank-out diglots. All the bible software ...

What experience do you have the with Greek language? I have been reading the New Testament in the Koine Greek language, which is much easier than other ancient texts. There are many words which I do not know, but I still understand the Christian Greek Scriptures because of having already read them ...

Re: Books omitted from LXX

Occasionally while working in Athanasius I have searched for samples of some unfamiliar syntax pattern. After numerous searches I noted something peculiar. I would search both the GNT (NA27) and Rahlfs LXX. The pattern would show up nowhere except Maccabees[1]. This happened often enough that it cau...

Wow. I didn't understand a word either of you just said. Glad to see I'm not mad in thinking it's unusual though!

I took it to mean that idols in the shape of humans creates the false impression that they, or what they represent, have senses.
Yes, that is exactly what I expected it to say and that is why I posted the question. Apparently that isn't what it says.
