Re: κατέχω ("repair") in LXX 2 Esdras 13:4-32 (Nehemiah 3)

For the Hebrew, I think it is using this sense (taken from SDBH): הֶחֱזִיק חזק (ḥzq) 3 causative action whereby humans or deities cause humans and objects to be strong in a physical, political, or military sense. (73)Glosses: to strengthen; to give strength, to fortify; to repair; to let prevail For...

Re: In Acts 5:3, what is the function of σε?

Siebenthal is in German, but it is being translated, I hope the translation is good. The translation is finished. Here is the English version: https://www.amazon.com/Ancient-Greek-Grammar-Study-Testament/dp/1789975867 . According to the preface, it is basically a slightly-edited and slightly-expand...

Re: 1 Pet 1:8 which verb does ἄρτι construe with?

Have you considered the alternative interpretation of άγαλλιᾶσθε as a futural present, which was apparently popular in the past although not in the modern translations? According to this ἄρτι can be construed with the whole of μὴ ὁρῶντες πιστεύοντες, and in contrast with the ex hypothesi future tim...

Re: In Acts 5:3, what is the function of σε?

I often find myself using the Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek instead of Smyth these days. I often find myself using Siebenthal instead of A.T. Robertson these days. They are easier to read, with great examples. Siebenthal is in German, but it is being translated, I hope the translation is good...

As far as grammars go, I lost my entire library in a fire of sorts some years ago and now rely on the internet.
I think you will need a good grammar. Increasingly, I am using Kindle editions instead of or in addition to my paper books, which provide better insulation for the walls.

Re: In Acts 5:3, what is the function of σε?

No, the subject of the main verb in the English example provide by Michael is "I" and the subject of the infinitive is "her." If the subject were the same it would be something like "I wanted to eat an apple." As in English, so in Greek, if the subjects are the same the subject of the infinitive is...

Re: In Acts 5:3, what is the function of σε?

Here's the phrase it is part of:
ψεύσασθαί σε τὸ πνεῦμα τὸ ἅγιον
σε is the accusative subject of the infinitive ψεύσασθαί.

Re: 1 Pet 1:8 which verb does ἄρτι construe with?

... εἰς ὃν ἄρτι μὴ ὁρῶντες πιστεύοντες δὲ άγαλλιᾶσθε ... Normally ἄρτι is construed with ὁρῶντες, despite the placement of the negative μή and the redundancy of the present tense. Does it make any sense to construe ἄρτι with ἀγαλλιᾶσθε (i.e., you exult right now)? This would treat the circumstantia...
