2 Cor.12:7,8: The Thorn

Without in any way wishing to engage in exegetical argumentation, my
understanding is that "hINA ME KOLAFIZNi," in 2 Cor.12:7, can be
translated "that he might beat me," or some such, "KOLAFIZNi" being
third-person-singular-subjunctive. This being the case, isn't it
possible that "APOSTHi," in verse 8 can be translated as "he might
depart," with "TOUTOU," in the same verse, referring to the situation
being described, or being used substantively? Many thanks for any

(I hope I used the iota subscript properly.)

Dr. Theodore "Ted" Mann
