1 Corinthians 11:21 wrote:Ἕκαστος γὰρ τὸ ἴδιον δεῖπνον προλαμβάνει ἐν τῷ φαγεῖν, καὶ ὃς μὲν πεινᾷ, ὃς δὲ μεθύει.
How does the relative pronoun work into the sentence construction here? Is it because the ἕκαστος is a type of shorthand for repeating the main body of the sentence. Like instead of writing "Τίς μὲν γὰρ τὸ δεῖπνον προλαμβάνει ἐν τῷ φαγεῖν, ὃς πεινᾷ, ἄλλος δὲ τὸ ἴδιον δεῖπνον προλαμβάνει ἐν τῷ φαγεῖν, ὃς δὲ μεθύει."? Are there other example of where the καί explicates the inner workings of an ἕκαστος construction?
