And I found one article that went somewhat farther, Carlson's The Accommodations of Joseph and Mary in Bethlehem: Κατάλυμα in Luke 2.7.

Re: Siebenthal - Ancient Greek Grammar

So far, I haven't persuaded myself to pay for BDAG in electronic form, since I have the hardbound book BDAG in olivetree is great as that is where I primarily do my NT reading. Just being able to click a word and get the lexical information is massively helpful. I also have a copy in Accordance - I...

Re: Siebenthal - Ancient Greek Grammar

Not into buying books. Still got some left but most have been given away. I am going the other way at the moment. Just moved to a new place and there is a lot more room - having a paper copy to hand is sometimes nicer than electronic. That said, for proper study the electronic versions are massivel...

Re: Rough or smooth breathing on hebrew names?

I think you have to look at this one name at a time.

For instance, take a look at this discussion of rough versus smooth breathing for Abraham's name in Greek.

With internet resources, of course, you also have to consider the possibility of errors.

Re: Siebenthal - Ancient Greek Grammar

“ Siebenthal’s grammar can fairly be called a research grammar: it certainly replaces Blass, Debrunner, and Rehkopf (and even more so Blass, Debrunner, and Funk, the English translation of an earlier Blass and Debrunner), and it is much more comprehensive than Wallace, Greek Grammar beyond the Basi...

Re: Siebenthal - Ancient Greek Grammar

Right now, I am using Siebenthal and the Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek as my two go-to grammars. You are using the Classical Greek one for Koine or for classical? For Koine, in much the same way that I use Smyth. Koine is close enough to Attic that you can learn a lot from a good classical g...

Re: Siebenthal - Ancient Greek Grammar

I have the German original, and have been very impressed with it. Right now, I am using Siebenthal and the Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek as my two go-to grammars. In German, Siebenthal's explanations are clear and precise, and he gives lots of excellent examples. I'm curious about how literal...

Re: Declension of foreign names --- Judith 2:24

The Zondervan Encyclopedia of the Bible confirms what Barry said, adding that other manuscripts use different names. Abron ay′bruhn (Αβρωνα; some MSS Χεβρων or Χευρων). A river of uncertain location mentioned in Jdt. 2:24 (KJV, “Arbonai”). Some identify it with the HABOR, a tributary of the EUPHRATE...
