Re: Rev 2:13 ο μαρτυς μου, ο πιστος [μου]?

Hi Stirling, You may want to read the following by Raija Sollamo: Repetition of the Possessive Pronouns in the Septuagint Essentially, Raija showed that in normal idiomatic Greek writing, the possessive pronoun would either be omitted (as the relation between the subject/object and the possessor was...

Re: Daniel 11:35

There is no major difficulty in construing εις ωρας with καιρος, as per the LES: 'an appointed time for a season'. As Biblical Hebrew doesn't have a specific word that means 'hour', the use of the Greek ωρα to translate the Hebrew מועד would be therefore using ωρα as meaning 'time-period, season, ag...

Re: Short and long [i]

There's an interesting blog post in Evangelical Textual Criticism blog. Peter Williams says there was a distinction between short and long [ i ]. http://evangelicaltextualcriticism.blogspot.fi/2017/10/not-in-luke.html What do you say? I would certainly agree. There's also the interesting 'correctio...

Re: Psalm 75:11

Vice-versa. The LALS "is specifically based on The Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint: H.B. Swete Edition (Swete LXX)." Ah, as stated in the preface (which I've only just now read) :) I'll admit that I'm not all that thrilled that a lot seems to have been based on an interlinear. Thought w...

Re: Psalm 75:11

The LES is designed to be transparent to the Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint, which has "inward thought" there. Was it also set to more or less use word-meanings given in the Lexham Analytical Lexicon of the Septuagint, which also has 'inward thought' as the meaning of ἐνθύμιος? Or vice...

Re: Logged out every time

Out of curiosity, are you including the www. when you access the site? Well I'll be darned, that works! As soon as I went to www.ibiblio.org, I was logged in! Went to ibiblio.org, I was logged back out again. Thanks for the tip, Jason! I shall amend my bookmark. Why on earth would it be doing that?...

Re: Ezekiel 3:2a

Yes, it's definitely 'he opened' (διήνοιξεν being 3rd person, singular). 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). Think most of Accordance's (and Logos') LXX mo...

Re: Evidence for the use of ὁμόθεν in Koine times?

Suffice to say, there is very little usage of it by any author from the looks of things. Just checked through the rest of the Perseus list, and most are either pre-koine, or essentially Athenaeus (4th cent CE) uses more than just once. At 17 recorded uses, certainly one of the least used adverbs. Be...

Re: 1 Kings 5:4 ἀμφότερα τὰ ἴχνη χειρῶν αὐτοῦ Hebraism or clarification

Unfortunately 1 Sam 5:4 isn't in 4QSama, which has extant 5:8 and onwards. I would say we have have some sort of conflation of translations in the LXX, as both the two phrases: καὶ ἀμφότερα τὰ ἴχνη χειρῶν αὐτοῦ ἀφῃρημένα ἐπὶ τὰ ἐμπρόσθια ἁμαφὲθ ἕκαστοι καὶ ἀμφότεροι οἱ καρποὶ τῶν χειρῶν αὐτοῦ πεπτωκ...
