Re: Infinitive Subjects of ἐγένετο

Those following this thread might be interested in the 2018 tesina by Sarah Gildea, " The Ἐγένετο Phrases and ἐν ταῖς ἡµέραις in the Gospel of Luke " From the conclusion: What had been overlooked was the connection between the Ἐγένετο forms and the ἡµέρα phrases. Confusion also arose when comparing ...

Re: In Jeremiah 31:21 LXX what is the sense of τιμωρίαν?

The NETS instead takes the words as transliterations of the Hebrew: הַצִּ֧יבִי לָ֣ךְ צִיֻּנִ֗ים שִׂ֤מִי לָךְ֙ תַּמְרוּרִ֔ים And reflects that in the English glossing the words with footnotes. Ken Penner or other LXX gurus can perhaps explain a little better about this? Perhaps a reference to the Go...

Re: The Testament of Asher, Concerning Two Faces of Vice and Virtue

OK, thanks for clarifying. I was only able to find one Greek text for this, although I expect that there may be others, since there are several manuscripts that R.H. Charles used. Regards. Charles (1908), The Greek versions of the Testaments of the twelve Patriarchs but of course the 1978 text by d...

I am interested in your comments, if any, when comparing the Greek with the two translations.
That’s not what this forum is for. We discuss the Greek text rather than translations.

Re: Today (2/8) is International LXX Day...

However, I've yet to find a good "Reader's" environment for LXX reading online. Has anyone found a solution for this? Everything I've tried so far doesn't handle words which occur in the LXX but not the GNT (i.e. precisely when I would need glosses!). I'd also point to the free resources from Faith...

Re: Deuteronomy 5:30

I think I'm beginning to understand what you are doing. Is this right: You are translating from Hebrew into Greek, then translating that Greek into English. If so: This is an interesting exercise, but I'm not sure why you are doing it. One summer when I was a grad student I translated the book of Ru...

Re: Deuteronomy 5:30

I'm confused about what you are asking or trying to accomplish. Are you wondering why the dual is not used? It had fallen out of use by the Koine period. Sure, you might find it in the Sibylline Oracles and other imitations of epic poetry. But it would have seemed really archaic. So the dual (not "c...
