Whoops. Seems the data I have incorrectly identifies ISQI as Present Active
Imperative 2nd person Singular of OIDA!!?! Duh. I suppose that would be
The good news is I probably have ISQI memorized now. :-)

*That* is helpful. I was trying to get some sense of the difference between
OIDA and GINWSKW. I now understand OIDA to have the sense of "full-formed
mental vision" where GINWSKW is more along the lines of experiential knowledge
(thanks George). The distinctly different morphology of these two "knows" now
makes sense to me.
I Cor. 8:1 is generating my questions:
PERI DE TWN EIDWLOQUTWN, OIDAMEN hOTI PANTES GNWSIN ECOMEN.
"Now about food sacrificed to idols, we are convinced we all have knowledge"
Thank you very much!
