Re: Isaiah Chapter 2

I found it interesting that ἀνίημι in verse six means almost the exact opposite of what it means in verse 9. I've noticed that the Greeks had no problem using the same word in very different, even opposite senses, in the same passage, with no sense of punning. I don't think we do that as much in En...

Οἱ ἐβασίλευσαν τῆς Ιουδαίας.
Shouldn't this be Οἳ ἐβασίλευσαν instead of Οἱ ἐβασίλευσαν? It's the relative pronoun, isn't it?

Re: What does this text mean? Romans 3:23

" This passage simply states that everybody fails, everybody misses it." It sounds really good to me. So, do you think the translation of "can't receive" for "ὑστεροῦνται" could be missing the point? If I may respond to this, yes - I feel this misses the essence of what the Greek is saying. It is s...

Re: Kai

Yes, καί means "even" at times, when we can take the two things joined as the same thing, the second being a restatement of the first. I wouldn't necessarily translate Luke 1:35 that way. Not saying that it couldn't be done, but I wouldn't read it that way. I think that the two things are different ...

Re: Dewayne Dulaney-Devenios Doulenios

Welcome to the forum, Dewayne. ?מתי נשוב לכתוב איש לרעהו (Then, I remember how much easier it is to type in modern Hebrew! ?מתי נתחיל להתכתב מחדש) I hope you're doing well. I didn't realize that we had a semi-similar background. I was introduced to Koine at the age of 17 by my pastor at the Lockwood...

Re: κατεγνωσμένος in Gal. 2:11

Paul makes no sense. Not generally the best assumption to make. ;) Why not assume that a native speaker wrote correctly and that we just need to adjust how we think of it in order to understand it? That's probably the better way of approaching it. God seems like a stretch in the context. Certainly ...

Re: Vinegar at the Cross

βιβρώσκω also appears earlier in the chapter (6:13). I think that what's happened in the Koine is that τρώγω has become the standard colloquial verb for "eat" while ἐσθίω is a more formal word. For what it's worth, there's a parallel shift in Latin, where the etymological equivalent of ἐσθίω, edo ,...

Re: Vinegar at the Cross

Thank you. I have since noticed that the NKJV and the NRSV both translate it as 'sour wine'. But, Frank, did you catch Carl's point about not comparing translations, but rather getting acquainted with the Greek itself? Our goal here isn't to compare translations and see who did a better job. Our go...

Re: Having problems viewing fonts? (Call for Guinea Pigs!)

Hi David, Preferring Gentium without limiting it to just the Greek characters has already been shown to diminish readability for other readers. Could you tell me if the following process works on your system. 1. Create a new bookmark (I called mine 'Gentrify') 2. Paste the following text into the '...
