Just translate it 'in'.
When I read it as "in" it does not communicate any meaning to me, at least not an unambiguous meaning. What does "in" communicate to you in this context?

By the way, I find it fascinating that Matthew 4:4 uses yet another preposition to link with ζήσεται !

Re: What is the function of ἐν in Galatians 3:12?

Okay, I see it. So it is "shall live by/because of/on account of [doing?] them".
Mat 4:4 MGNT - ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν γέγραπται οὐκ ἐπ᾽ ἄρτῳ μόνῳ ζήσεται ὁ ἄνθρωπος ἀλλ᾽ ἐπὶ παντὶ ῥήματι ἐκπορευομένῳ διὰ στόματος θεοῦ
Thanks Jonathon; makes sense.

Okay, so "live according to their guidance"? Or " by means of obeying them, gain life"?

What does "by" suggest in that context?

Thanks.

What is the function of ἐν in Galatians 3:12?

What is the function of ἐν in Galatians 3:12? Gal 3:12 MGNT - ὁ δὲ νόμος οὐκ ἔστιν ἐκ πίστεως ἀλλ᾽ ὁ ποιήσας αὐτὰ ζήσεται ἐν αὐτοῖς He's obviously quoting the OT: Lev 18:5 LXX - καὶ φυλάξεσθε πάντα τὰ προστάγματά μου καὶ πάντα τὰ κρίματά μου καὶ ποιήσετε αὐτά ἃ ποιήσας ἄνθρωπος ζήσεται ἐν αὐτοῗς ἐγὼ...

Wow! That is an awesome tool. That would absolutely be exactly what I'm seeking, but for koine.

Has anyone tried to group NT texts by a commonality of writing style among disparate NT authors? Yes, I have seen that analysis done in a couple of different ways, but I do not have any reference handy. The last one I remember seeing at SBL a few years ago was done based on syntax patterns.

Re: In Romans 1:7, "called to be saints" or "invited, holy"?

For myself, at this point, think Jonathon's caveat is probably the most important consideration. The question probably cannot be settled grammatically. It is more settled by how one understands the thrust of what Paul is saying. I'm happy to leave it at that for this context. Thanks for the input.

Sorry, I meant to post a different post, more relevant. I'm not posting it now, though, because it is way too technical.
