Re: Ezekiel 3:2a

That's correct. I somehow have lots of modules in Accordance called LXX-something.... but I don't know the history of them and didn't realize there was a difference (in the Greek).

Why is this version different to the others?

Ezekiel 3:2a

How would you translate this? καὶ διήνοιξεν τὸ στόμα μου, ... NETS translates it: And I opened wide my mouth, ... Perhaps I am reading too late at night to concentrate but I read it as And my mouth opened, ... Where does the I come from? It's there in the Hebrew but I can't work out where it comes f...

Re: LXX Solomon 17:22

By the way, its an honour to meet someone who has done published translation of this text. I notice that you translate v26 "to crush all their support with an iron rod", in contrast to NETS which has a slightly less clear v24 "to shatter all their substance with an iron rod" Was there a reason you c...

Re: LXX Solomon 17:22

FWIW, my translation in the Lexham English Septuagint is "And undergird him with strength to shatter unrighteous rulers. " I was not aware of this resource. I have a few pulled up next to the greek in Accordance, however most of them are in fairly old English. It would be nice to have some more mod...

Re: Didache 12:1 and Commentary?

Just one quibble with the translation: ἕξετε is future.
Thanks, thats a silly mistake.

The left-hand toilet wiping thing is not something I had associated with biblical times! Interesting, I will have to look into that.

LXX Solomon 17:22

Im having trouble with the articular infinitive below, from verse 22: καὶ ὑπόζωσον αὐτὸν ἰσχὺν τοῦ θραῦσαι ἄρχοντας ἀδίκους, Duff seems to imply that τοῦ θραῦσαι becomes a noun of sorts, i.e. perhaps: And gird him (with) strength for smashing unrighteous rulers But Lightfoot translates it as an actu...

Didache 12:1 and Commentary?

Hi Everyone, First my specific question: 12:1 Πᾶς δὲ ὁ ἐρχόμενος ἐν ὀνόματι Κυρίου δεχθήτω. ἔπειτα δὲ δοκιμάσαντες αὐτὸν γνώσεσθε σύνεσιν γὰρ ἕξετε δεξιὰν καὶ ἀριστεράν. It seems that there are some interesting variations on how to translate certain passages in the Didache. Does this seem reasonable...

Translation notes included the LXX

I'm beginning my journey into the LXX.

Is there a resource for the LXX which is provides translation notes. Not so much the textual criticism (like Metzgers notes), but more translational issues?

Re: How to progress to patristics?

I don't know why I didn't think of that, but on a practical level, it's been true for me that if I know all the vocabulary the grammar starts to seem not difficult at all! I'll start with some Anki word lists preceding each chapter.

Thanks for the feedback and encouragement!

Re: They disciplined _us_ ?? (Heb 12:10)

Just to be perfectly pedantic, not elision (which is the omission of a final letter or syllable), but elipsis is the correct term. Does this mean an "us" is considered to be ellided? NASB doesn't indicate so with its special method of capitalising to indicate "added" text: Thanks Barry, my lecturer...
