Thank you, Carl, for the welcome to the list, as well as for your helpful comments. I especially appreciated the very gentle way in which you corrected my mistake regarding EUELPIS, which I had taken as a noun but, as your translation made clear, is in fact an adjective. I'm not going to beat myself up over it, though. It was a natural mistake on my part, both because the Hebrew used a noun for "hope," and ELPIS is a Greek noun for hope, so I understandably assumed that EUELPIS was also a noun, the EU carrying the sense of "good." So much for assumptions. ;^) Anyway, thanks again.
