1 Clement 27:7 gives a quotation of LXX Ps. 19:1-3, which includes the
puzzling hH hHMERA THi hHMERAi EREUGETAI RHMA KAI NUX NUKTI ANAGGELLEI
GNWSIN. A typical translation is something like "day utters speech to day
and night proclaims knowledge to night." But I have no idea what that
means (i.e., in English) (and note: I'm *not* asking what the original
Hebrew meant, but what the Greek in 1 Clement did).
What would you think of something a bit more paraphrastic that, while
still strange, can at least be construed, something like: "One day utters
a word to another, and one night proclaims knowledge to the next"?
