<x-flowed>Didache 1:3 POIA GAR CARIS is translated by Kirsopp Lake as "what credit is
that to you". My stubborn brain can't figure out how to construe POIA and
CARIS to obtain that meaning. Zerwick finds this likely, too. Are there
other places where CARIS means "credit"?
However, Luke 6:32-34 has POIA hUMIN CARIS, three times, in a parallel
passage, and NASB translates this as "what credit is that to you". Matthew
5:46 has TINA MISQON ECETE, which is a very similar meaning.
By the way, I can't remember who recommended the Didache as light reading,
but it really is quite easy to read, especially as many of the phrases echo
phrases that are familiar from the New Testament.
