> Does hWS PAROIKOUS KAI PAREPIDHMOUS modify PARAKALW or
I think it modifies PARAKALW. Here are some reasons:
1) PARAKALW + hWS is found also in 1 Timothy 5:1: Rebuke not an
elder, but exhort him as a father; the younger men as brethren
(PRESBUTERW MH EPIPLHXHS ALLA PARAKALEI WS PATERA, NEWTEROUS WS
ADELFOUS ... ). Here it is evident, that WS PATERA and WS
ADELFOUS are the motives and reasons for the exhortations.
2) The section of 1 Peter 2:11 - 17, and especially Verses 11
and 12 deal with the subject: The Christian and the authorities
of this world. Now the motive to be strangers and sojourners (in
this world) are a strong reason to BOTH verses, and not only to
the appeal to "keep from the fleshly desires". So it is more
convincing, to combine "as strangers ..." with "I exhort".
Some (Kuehl, e.g.) think, to connect of PARAKALW and hWS
PAROIKOUS would make the addition of hUMAS indispensable:
PARAKALW hUMAS hWS PAROIKOUS. But in Jude 1:3 there is no
accusative in connection with PARAKALEW as well.
By the way: There is another instances, where the connection of
PARAKALEW has been discussed sometimes: 1 Timothy 2:1: Connect
PRWTWN PANTWN with PARAKALW (the common, and I think correct
notion) or with POIEISTHAI DEHSEIS ... ?
