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...

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

Only checked one of these out over at Perseus - http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/wordfreq?lookup=o(mo/qen&lang=greek&sort=name Apollonius Rhodius has used it once in Argonautica - that's more or less around the start of the koine period: http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/text?doc=Perseus:text:1...

Re: Restrictive Adjectives

The Rev 19:9 one is probably more Hebrew influenced than Greek (in Hebrew, the adjective does usually follow the noun rather than precede, though it can precede in several cases).

Rev is well known for not really caring about Greek grammar-rules :)

Re: Abbreviations “Al.” and “Quint.” in Hatch and Redpath’s Concordance to the Septuagint

Well, 'Quint.' refers to the Quinta, that is yet another Greek translation that Origen apparently used in extra columns, expanding the Hexapla in certain books - Psalms, Canticles, Job, and Minor Prophets. 'Quinta' is therefore the reference to this 5th Greek translation of the Tanakh (Aquila being ...

Re: Differences Between Da 11:13 in Field's Hexapla and Rahlfs' Version of the Septuagint

Well, I'm either tired or stupid to have got the singular ἄλλος and the plural ἄλλοι mixed up, especially as the last αλλοι is back in Dan 7:9. I'm settling on 'tired' :) Also received the English translation of Field's Hexapla - should certainly consider getting it, Vlad. Gives a lot of information...
