ESV shows only exclamation points (!). N-A1904 shows only colons (:). Berry's Interlinear GNT and N-A28 show commas (,) and co...

Re: Mark 4:29 παραδῷ allow, or ripen

I agree in part with Carl. The earlier B/03 (c. 325-375 CE) shows ΟΤΑΝΔΕΠΑΡΑΔΟΙΟΚΑΡΠΟΣ (οταν δε παραδοι ο καρπος, or whenever is ripe the crop ). Later, in ℵ/01 (which initially read as B/03), ΠΑΡΑΔΟΙ (παραδοι) was changed to read ΠΑΡΑΔΩ (παραδω). A/02 and later mss appear, IMO, to be based on the r...

Re: Jn 17:5 position of παρὰ σοί

cwconrad asked, "Am I alone in finding the position of παρὰ σοί here strange?" Information available at, inter alia , newadvent.org, indicates you're not alone. In several English translations of patristic allusions related to John 17:5, Irenaeus, Novatian, and Origen put παρὰ σοί in front of πρὸ το...

Re: rough breathing on αὐτοὺς Rev. 8:6 ?

Perhaps a comparison of the Greek verb seen at Rev. 8:6 in P115, 01 and 02 might be helpful?

Re: Philippians 1.3-5

[D]oes Philippians mean 'horse lover,' and if so, what's the origin of this name? The gen. sing. masc. noun Philippi at, e.g., Matt. 16:13 KJV was rendered from a compound Greek word: φίλος (philos = friend of, fond of) + ἵππος (hippos = horse). The origin of ἵππος is uncertain. (Cp., e.g., Strong'...

Hi, Alan. You wrote: Yielding a translation then like, If anyone's work shall be consumed, it/the reward shall be forfeited. Any thoughts? According to some Greek Lexicons, forfeit is an acceptable alternate rendering of ζημιωθησεται . But my English dictionaries indicate that when someone has or wi...

Re: Ephesians 5:5 ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ τοῦ Χριστοῦ καὶ θεοῦ

I haven't located any other occurrences of του χριστου και θεου in the BMT, TR, or KJV. Vulgate has "in regno Christi et Dei" ( in the kingdom of Christ and God ) also. Earlier, the words for "in the kingdom of Christ and God" were penned by Clement of Alexandria ( The Instructor III-48, ca. 175-220...
