I may be displaying my ignorance here so please bear with me...
Titus 3:1a reads:
hUPOMIMNHiSKE AUTOUS ARCAIS EXOUSIAIS hUPOTASSESQAI
I understand that the infinitive is serving as the direct object
of the imperative verb, but what is the relationship between the
infinitive and the 2 plural datives, if any? With the absence of KAI
between the nouns (and I realize that the KAI appears in the majority
text, but we need not go down that path) am I totally out of line to see
the ARCAIS as somehow acting as a modifier of EKOUSIAIS (i.e., "ruling
authorities). It just seems to me that there is more going on here than
meets the eye.
Thanks for your insight.
