I like the EGT also. (But mine doesn't have a volume on "Paul" - mine is in
5(?) volumes and goes basically canonically through the New Testament. This
is the EGT edited by Nicoll, done in the '50's, I believe - not Alford's(?)
100-year-old one.)

I refer to Rendall as "idiosyncratic" because at several points he
interprets/translates/comments on the Galatians text differently than
almost every translation I compare his rendering with. E.g., he is the one
who suggested the THi ELEUQERIAi ... translation of Galatians 5:1 that has
prompted such an interesting discussion on this list (after I submitted his
translation to B-Greek for comment). He seems to treat PNEUMA in Galatians
often as a man's human spirit, even in places where most translations treat
it as the Holy Spirit, and I don't offhand agree with him on this.
