The enclitic με at Luke 5:12

Κύριε, ἐὰν θέλῃς δύνασαί με καθαρίσαι. Since an enclitic, on losing its accent, forms a part of the preceding word it seems strange to me to see με with δύνασαι. It may be in part due to my desire to fit it to a Spanish reflexive pronoun, but it seems like it would be better if it followed καθαρίσαι...

Ἐπίκτητος...φίλος ἀθανάτοις.

Δοῦλος Ἐπίκτητος γενόμην καὶ σῶμ' ἀνάπηρος καὶ πενίην Ἶρος καὶ φίλος ἀθανάτοις. Slave, poor as Irus, halting as I trod, I, Epictetus, was the friend of God. An anonymous epigram translated by H Macnaghten. I was perusing Louis Sorenson’s “Let’s Read Greek” website and came across the above epigram. ...

Re: επὶ [τῳ] παροργισμῳ Eph. 4:26

BDAG under παροργισμός indicates that it is the state of being intensely provoked, angry mood, angry. The footnote on Ephesians 4:26 in the NET Bible says in part: “33tn The word παροργισμός (parorgismo"), typically translated “anger” in most versions is used almost exclusively of the source of ange...

Re: επὶ [τῳ] παροργισμῳ Eph. 4:26

1) The presence or absence of an article rarely is decisive for the sense 2) How could 'anger' be a location? If it's 'locative' that would have to be figurative 3) The sense of the command is pretty transparent, so does it really matter which 'function of the dative' this is? 1) Really? 2) It's th...

επὶ [τῷ] παροργισμῷ Eph. 4:26

ὁ ἥλιος μὴ επιδυέτω επὶ παροργισμῷ ὑμῶν. Do not let the sun set while you are angry. Under επί 18 (b) BDAG indicates that επί with the dative can be a marker of temporal association; time at or during which. BDAG specifically references Ephesians 4:26 with παροργισμῷ anarthrous. By making παροργισμῷ...

Re: Main Verbs

Carl, It was brought to my attention that the main verbs of the compound subjects at 1 Thess. 3:11 and 2 Thess. 2:16, 17 are optative 3rd person singular rather than plural as one might expect. This of course raised the questions why and what could it mean. At first glance I took the verbs to be inf...

Re: σημερον and Wackernagel's Law

While it is true that I am interested in ultimately divining whether σημερον modifies λεγω or εση I would first like to start by eliminating or at least finding any factors that may have limited the author from positioning σημερον earlier in the sentence for greater focus. 1.) και ειπεν αυτω Αμην ση...
