Re: Lu 1:58

(4) "congratulated her" is wrong because "αυτη" is not accusative and hence cannot be the direct object of "συνεχαιρον" (5) "συνεχαιρον" means "were rejoicing with" (LSJ) If you have a look at the usages in both LSJ and BDAG, both "rejoice with" and "congratulate/wish one joy" take the dative case.

Re: Ephesians 5:25

See my comments on translation in the other thread you started. The quick answer is yes. In context, the semantic range of both ἄνδρες and γυναῖκας must be restricted to "husbands and wives." Unless you had some other issue about the text in mind?

Re: Galatians 2:20

First of all, Mario, thanks for obeying all the rules, posting in the beginners' forum and quoting the entire Greek text! Note that normally we do not discuss so much translation issues as issues related to understanding the Greek, translation only in so far as it might help us better with the Greek...

Re: Are there any Greek online TV programs?

Glenn, such a program would help you with modern Greek, but not with ancient Greek. A number of people recently have posted ancient and especially Koine Greek videos to youtube of late where they are speaking Koine, some of them members of B-Greek.

Re: Lu 1:58

Let me add that "congratulate" and "rejoice with" are both part of the semantic range of the verb, the difference being simply one of nuance. I personally think "rejoice with" captures the force a bit better in the context of Lu 1:58. Now, Roy, the warning you were given in the other thread counts f...

Re: Mat 6:13 Who is addressed?

May I commend the moderators for their patience! You may indeed, and the moderators will receive and appreciate any and all commendation. However, our patience is not limitless, and here I have to issue a final warning to Roy Frederick: Roy, you admit that you are a novice. You quote online materia...

Re: 1 Peter 5:3

I think personally that the most important thing is Barry's last sentence: "It's clear what it means." Understanding the meaning of a standard formulation like τύποι τοῦ ποιμνίου precedes the endeavor to explain how such a construction actually works. I wouldn't call this an "objective genitive" be...

Re: Parsing resources and "next steps"

In addition to Randall's always excellent comments, let me add that you don't practice the English alphabet every day. You use it. Randall is giving you a major way of using what you've learned. Another way (both/and not either/or) is to read as much ancient Greek every day as you can fit into your ...

Re: 1 Peter 5:3

May the Lord protect us from the multiplication of genitives! :D But if someone put a sword to my throat and made me choose, I would say some type (!) of objective genitive, since it really means examples that the flock are to look toward or emulate. Thanks for the reply. So, τύποι ... τοῦ ποιμνίου...
