Re: 2 Cor 1:3 articulation within a Granville-Sharp construction

It's the feminine part of your response that surprised me. I can't think of a reason why masculine abstracts would be exempt. Good observation. I've noticed it with feminine abstracts, never really paid attention to masculine. Even still, abstracts sometimes do have the article, so it's not really ...

Re: 2 Cor 1:3 articulation within a Granville-Sharp construction

In your first example, I think because it's not unusual for feminine abstract nouns to omit the article, and particularly in the oblique cases. Never heard of this rule. In the second, ἀδελφός is clearly appositional to the already articular ὁ υἱός, so no need to repeat the article. Talking about t...

Re: Meanings of the Word ἄφιξις

BDAG looks quite clear to me. Of course it can't mean "arrival" and "departure" at the same time -- you've answered your own question about that. Context determines which it means. ἄφιξις -εως, ἡ [ἀπό, ἵξις] ⓐ arrival HDT. 1.69.3, al. LYS. 2.26 etc.; ἡ οἴκαδε ἄ. return home DEMOSTH. epist. 1.2, al. ...

Re: Rev. 22:19 Tree or Trees.

ξύλον can occasionally have a collective sense when it is used to refer to wood in the sense of "lumber, building material." Habakkuk 2.11 seems to have this idea: διότι λίθος ἐκ τοίχου βοήσεται, καὶ κάνθαρος ἐκ ξύλου φθέγξεται αὐτά ("For the stone shall cry out of the wall, and the beetle out of t...

Re: Rev. 22:19 Tree or Trees.

Well, just to clarify, the form is genitive singular. So as it stands, no, it's not possible.

What research did you do? According to NA 28, there is no textual variant worth mentioning (there is Erasmus' famous "book" error, retroverting from the Latin, but that's hardly the same thing).

Re: Deut 6:8 Translation Issue

After interacting with a colleague who has his Ph.D. in OT, I'm leaning toward the "they just had difficulty with the rare Hebrew word" explanation.

Re: Who was loathed in Exodus 1:12?

Εβδελύσσοντο is middle/passive. And I understand the ἀπὸ + genitive construction can be interpreted as cause (because of) or agency (by) (Wallace, GGBB, 368). The NETS translation translates it as follows: "and the Egyptians were disgusted with the sons of Israel." This would, I'm guessing, be simi...
