<< 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).
I could point you to a theological interpretation if that is your interest
(this is frowned upon in this forum so I will only mention it). In Reformed
theology this has been referred to as general revelation. Most of the
Reformed theologians understand it thus. Karl Barth, however, differs.
I would suggest that you might read it in the context of Ps. 19. I'm
inclined to think that would be the intention of 1 Clement.
