Re: The expression: "ἐντεῦθεν καὶ ἐντεῦθεν"

It would seem pretty obvious, I think. You've answered it perfectly well. :)

Re: Luke 6:27 εχθρους

What I know about Gothic can be engraved in large Gothic script on my thumbnail... :lol: But, in Greek, a military enemy is usually ὁ πολέμιος (not a NT word), a personal enemy ὁ ἐχθρός, the hostis/inimīcus distinction in Latin. Touché. Yes, οἱ πολέμιοι is indeed military enemies. I was thinking mo...

Re: Luke 6:27 εχθρους

"expertise"??? Well I'm trying to become one ... Good luck in your endeavors! The problem her is, that all other occurrences of ο εχθρος are rendered with the Gothic noun "fiand" (German "Feind", Dutch "vijand", English "enemy"), just her in Luke 6:27 the Gothic translator has chosen a participle c...

Re: Luke 6:27 εχθρους

I am so used to use this terminus as designation of the translator, that I forget, that not everybody knows what it means. Thanks for that, Jean. :) Do you read the Gothic language yourself? Is that your area of expertise? I'm not at all aware of that language. Would you then take οἱ ἐχθροὶ ὑμῶν to...

Re: Why is αρχή plural in Genesis 1:16?

Hi, Brandon. As a matter of housekeeping, please contact a moderator so that we can get your username to conform to the forum police . I'm not sure why it would read εἰς ἀρχάς instead of εἰς ἀρχήν . I had never really thought of it. I've asked in another group, too, to put out feelers for opinions. ...

Re: John 17:5 and Existence in God's Plan

Reading the thread again, I guess what you meant to say was that although Barry might understand the text without recourse to English translation, you yourself need it to be translated into English. This isn't how I understood your message initially. Is that what you meant? We do kinda assume on th...

Re: John 17:5 and Existence in God's Plan

Okay, I think we need a quick paradigm review (at least I do). I composed without thinking, and then thought about it and realized that I had written written the aorist middle wrongly. But my instinct was correct, because I defaulted to the perfect middle/passive form, προώρισαι, which uses the pri...

Re: John 17:5 and Existence in God's Plan

I think it'd be προώρισας ("you predestined") rather than προώρισαι ("you were predestined"). Perhaps change the whole phrase to the aorist passive participle: τῇ δόξῃ τῇ προορισθείσῃ μοι πρὸ τοῦ τὸν κόσμον εἶναι . Middle voice. Passive would be προωρίσθης. However, I think the form should probably...
