II Samuel 7:10-14

10 καὶ θήσομαι τόπον τῷ λαῷ μου τῷ Ισραηλ καὶ καταφυτεύσω αὐτόν, καὶ κατασκηνώσει καθ᾽ ἑαυτὸν καὶ οὐ μεριμνήσει οὐκέτι, καὶ οὐ προσθήσει υἱὸς ἀδικίας τοῦ ταπεινῶσαι αὐτὸν καθὼς ἀπ᾽ ἀρχῆς 11 ἀπὸ τῶν ἡμερῶν, ὧν ἔταξα κριτὰς ἐπὶ τὸν λαόν μου Ισραηλ, καὶ ἀναπαύσω σε ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν ἐχθρῶν σου, καὶ ἀπαγγε...

Re: Heb 1.14

Point taken. With the accusative this preposition usually indicates some form of cause or reason often translated with "because of" or "for the sake of". It also enables a meaning of "for" in passages like Mk. 2:27 (BDF for passage citation). In addition to this, it rarely occurs with a spacial mean...

Re: Heb 1.14

I don't see anything here that suggests an answer for when the angels are sent out. It seems to me the natural answer would be when they are needed. This could be all the time, but there nothing in the text that demands it. In terms of agency, the angels follow God's agenda in helping His people. Th...

Re: James 2:18: my works, my faith, or both?

Are there any general rules for determining which phrase the pronoun most likely belongs to? I've looked in BDF, Wallace, Black, and Robertson, and they do not treat this verse specifically. I also checked to see if they mentioned any guidelines for making a decision in these types of instances in t...

Re: James 2:18: my works, my faith, or both?

My fault on this. I actually meant that I second your request for him to elaborate. I get your meaning though, and I chuckled. From what I have read, I surmise that you and I are probably near the same proficiency level. Regardless, on this we would be in the same boat. :)

I am with Jonathan. Would you please elaborate on the data that supports the possible interpretations? It would help me understand the language better. Thanks!

Re: James 2:18: my works, my faith, or both?

I lean toward putting the possessive pronoun with works. I understand the term faith to refer here to the common principles of faith that find unique expression in practice and devotion by each different Christian. Or "works". That being said it could go with either faith or works. The rules involve...

Re: 1 Tim 2:15 they - children

Stanley Porter gives a brief treatment of this passage in the Journal for the Study of the New Testament. It is reprinted in the series Studies in the Greek New Testament. The title is "What Does it Mean to be 'Saved by Childbirth.'" I am not saying I agree with the article. I just thought you may b...
