Oh what trouble spell ch eckers can get one into. I did indeed write the
above. What I meant to say was that Fred Danker's MULTIPURPOSE TOOLS FOR
BIBLE STUDY *is* out in a fourth edition from Fortress Press, not
Concordia, the publisher of the first three editions.

The comment Carl cited refers to [mea culpa. mea cuoppa,. mea maxima
culpa!] to the *3rd* edition of BAGD. Please excuse my spellchecker that
recognized "not" as a correctly spelled word, even though I meant to write
"now." Oh what fools these mortals be ...!"
