Luther's translation of αἰών/αἰώνιος

Greek texts such as the New Testament, The Greek Old Testament (Septuagint/LXX), Patristic Greek texts, Papyri, and other Greek writings of the New Testament era. Discussion must focus on the Greek text, not on modern language translations, theological controversies, or textual criticism.

Please quote the Greek text you are discussing directly in your post if it is reasonably short - do not ask people to look it up. This is not a beginner's forum, competence in Greek is assumed.

noob disclaimer

I am surprised the English word "aeon" had not been mentioned yet in the discussion as a suitable placeholder for the Greek αιων. Probably just my ignorance would see it as relevant... The corresponding article in Wikipedia is at the least rather entertaining https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aeon
Of course the German WP article is even more fun in understanding the Greek concept, even mentioning Luther's Welt etc. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Äon_(Theologie) https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%84on_(Theologie) (one of these links should work)
